New Year Walk: Repton and Ingleby, Jan 2012

Our eight-mile New Year circular walk started in the historic village of Repton, and then took us over Askew Hill before dropping down to the fascinating Anchor Church Caves near Ingleby. After a well-earned drink at the John Thompson Inn we continued towards Foremark Hall, stopping briefly at the small church there, before returning via Milton village back to Repton.

There were no previous BCV work-sites on this year's walk (there'll be plenty of those on our National Forest Festival walk on May 19th), and unfortunately no good hedges of note for Lynn, but instead we did see a wealth of interesting natural and historic features along the way.
