Dave says he has to leave on the Saturday evening and drive home. So I propose we have our supper in the curry house earlier than usual so that Dave can join us for the meal before he leaves. We can then decamp to the Three Tuns for the rest of the evening - sorry you'll miss the micro-brewery ale, Dave.
I suggest the walk should be about ten miles given the short daylight hours - does that sound OK, everyone?
My favoured route starts in Carding Mill Valley - Lightspout waterfall, Portway, Pole Bank trig point, Ashes Hollow, Little Stretton, over the A49, up Ragleth Hill, lane to Hazler Hill, then a dogleg on two lanes to Hope Bowdler Hill. From there we can either walk back to Church Stretton or if daylight allows take in Caer Caradoc as well. Comments?
