Gary reports :-
Eight club members set out from Frosterley on a pleasant Sunday morning.
90 minutes later we were up on the ridge line next to the elephant trees enjoying fine views and coffee.
The walk across typical open moorland was followed by a trek into Hamsterley Forest along the green lane which has been heavily rutted by off road vehicles.
Lunch was taken at the picnic spot next to Ayhope Beck which lasted longer than normal due to the fine weather at this point.
Our journey back took us again on to Pikeston Fell and back into Frosterley.
The day ended with a nice cheese/meat platter in the Black Bull Inn.
Thanks to all the members who made this a lovely day out.
