We gathered at The Royal Oak, Andoversford and set off on a circular walk of around 5 miles which included the charming villages of Whittington, Sevenhampton, Brockhampton and Syreford. In between the villages we were treated to a very varied walk along tracks and paths over soggy meadows, arable fields and through woods and even a harvest festival churchyard, all including some wonderful views over the Cotswolds.
The weather was glorious. Alas, we discovered only hours beforehand that the pub was not able to provide lunch but stalwart Grippers supporter James rolled his sleeves up and cooked up a feast for all the walkers at very short notice. Big thanks to James.
