Sheriff Hutton walkers
Steve W reports... Nineteen of us met at the Highwayman at Sheriff Hutton on a warm Wednesday morning, August 19th, all of us hoping the weather would remain bright for the next few hours considering the forecast was for rain later.
Graham led the walk at a brisk pace, whilst we stopped to admire along the way the ever changing landscape, the countryside at this time of year is at its best, harvest is now underway, the potato crop looks good, and the grazing livestock look content. The hedgerows are heavy with berries,and in the distance we see racehorses exercising on the gallops .
We covered six & a half miles in three hours, by now the sun was shining as we reconvened back at the Highwayman were we enjoyed a hearty lunch (with help from The Eat Out To Help Out Scheme) in the lovely beer garden.
Thanks to Graham for organising such an enjoyable walk.
