New Year walk, Alderley Edge, Sun 4th Jan
As is our custom, we eased ourselves into the new year with a countryside stroll rather than a workday. 15 of us had clearly been overdoing it enough at Christmas to feel the need to get out.
The mud very quickly saw three people decide that lunch in the pub was a preferable option, but the rest of us enjoyed beautiful winter sunshine and hazy views over the Cheshire plain.
As we approached the woods around the Edge, we detoured from my planned route, as Tim promised us a lovely waterfall. As usual, Tim was right, although suggestions that the men should take a quick plunge underneath the cascade went unheeded.
