On Thursday 6th December 9 members and 2 guests enjoyed a 4½ mile walk from Northleach.
We followed the Monarch's Way out of Northleach past the Old Prison and across fields to Hampnett. After a walk around this pretty little village we continued on the Monarch's Way south on tracks and paths until we reached a reservoir. Here we took the lane to the A429, which we crossed, continuing on a bridleway to Helen's Ditch.
We then took the path back down into Northleach and lunch in the Black Cat Café.
