The Fellwalkers Sunday walk began at Beacon Fell Country Park. Clive Horsford led the large group through the Rosemary Bullivant Memorial Forest and on through buttercup bedecked slopes down to the lower road from where White Lee Lane took them to Brock Bottoms.
The river Brock was followed to the foot of Snape Rake Lane which was ascended to enter Boggy Wood. The path over a footbridge led to the Waddicar Outdoor Pursuits centre and soon a large fallen tree provided a convenient place for a refreshment break during which the ruby wedding anniversary of two of our group was celebrated with wine and cake.
With bright blue skies overhead, the river was followed further to join the road at Weaver’s Farm and on to Higher Brock Mill. Field paths then led to woodland giving access to Beacon fell summit from which the views were extensive. It was then a short step back to the car park.
