Over 32 walkers and three dogs took part in the Hallam Community Association Boundary Walk last Thursday.

Organiser Pat Wilkins reviewed the day:

The group set off from The Sportsman pub on Redmires Road for the 6½ mile walk at around 10.30am. The weather held which was a bonus.

The walk along the crags was challenging in places and coffee was taken on the large grassy verge near the Claremont Hospital which raised a few eyebrows by passing motorists and pedestrians.

We followed the gennel down to the Carsicks, into the Chorleys, Fulwood village and all the way down to Forge Dam for lunch where herons and ducks were seen.

Then it was the steady climb up to School Green Lane, Harrison Lane, Blackbrook Road and on to the conduit back to the Sportsman Pub where a much appreciated drink was enjoyed.

The Star arrived to take photos so look out for the headlines!
