Happy New Year to everyone from the Nuneaton Hill Walking and Mountaineering Club
The first walk of the year was programmed to be in Llangollen but the weather report forecast wind and rain all day so the destination was changed to Cannock Chase.
Although it rained all the way there it stopped and cleared up as soon as we arrived and we completed the 10 mile walk in bright sunny weather. Note the shadows in the attached photograph.
There are numerous paths and tracks over the Chase and ours took us past the two cemeteries and the Polish Memorial before climbing to the highest point where we got some super views of the surrounding countryside. Spotted some deer on the return to the cafe where we had a welcome cuppa before returning home. A very enjoyable walk made all the more special because the weather was far better than expected.
