With Storm Doris uprooting trees and blowing over lorries on Thursday, Andrew sensibly suggested we shift our outing to the Friday.
We were a foursome: Andrew, Ken, Laurence and Brian, setting out from The Pheasant and picking our way carefully around fallen branches. The wind may have died down but there was plenty of debris left on the roads.
At one point, Ken narrowly avoided getting skewered by a man removing a pole from the back of a van. And we also passed the great Alf Engers out on his bike. Otherwise the outing was thankfully uneventful.
Returning to The Pheasant we were delighted to be joined by Sandra for lunch by the fire.
Thanks, Andrew, for leading the way.
