Cirencester Ramblers

December 16th Mildenhall

With the river on one side and the site of Cunetio, a Roman town, on the other, 18 members walked the beautiful Kennet valley from Mildenhall ( locally known as Minal) to Stichcombe. 

 

Here they climbed to the ridge for the return, via the quaintly named Cock-a-Troop and Chopping Knife Lanes, descending to the Saxon Minal church and a welcome drink in the local pub
