Walk Chrome Hill 22/10/2017

Cary led a walk around Chrome Hill 10miles.

Cary wrote :- On 22nd October 2017, 6 of us faced the tail end of storm Brian on a walk from Earl Sterndale. Bypassing the intended ridges of Parkhouse Hill & Chrome Hill on the road, we braved wind & rain in our faces until hiding behind a wall for elevenses. After that  it was varying degrees of mud & misnavigation to Thirkelow & Brand Top. Revived by Harvey’s emergency rations (emergency now defined as walk leader leaving lunch in the car), perfect navigation was resumed to continue the muddiest walk since the last muddiest walk. Some blue sky put in an appearance at 3pm, along with some timid rainbows still battling Brian. “A hard walk” declared Harvey, “Ouch” said Tracey, “Thanks for the walk” said Jack. He’s such a gentleman, unlike Brian.
