Afternoon Stroll

23 April 2017

Afternoon stroll approaching Spark House LaneJust an afternoon stroll for the Cubs. A walk up Hollas Lane from Sowerby Bridge and then onto Norland Moor via Pickwood Scar. The kids were busy chatting while I was busy puffing and panting!

Time to play on the park for half an hour before we made our way back down the hill via the old Blue Ball pub (now closed and private dwellings). We like this way down because its fast and safe, with only two minor roads to cross. If there is no livestock in the field, the kids like rolling down the steep grassy bank.

It was the end of the Easter holidays so we only had 4 Cubs, but the weather was fantastic!

We walked 5 miles in 3 hours, including a play on the park. The youngest Cub was 8 years old and on his first hike; I asked him when we got back if he was tired – definitely not!
