Christmas Walk 2013

Christmas Walk 13th  December 2013

This walk started at Beech House in Thornton before heading down Boothbridge Lane to The Power House. We then followed the stream down to a very muddy Brown House Farm and on to Elslack where Leslie had Mulled wire and mince pies waiting.

After a short break it was off again to Broughton where we picked up the Gargrave road before bearing left to pick up The Pennine Way back to East Marton and the Cross Keys pub. The Cross Keys feed and watered the 18 of us over a 2hr lunch before the hardened walkers set off back to Thornton in the rain.
