Mills along the Brock

Doreen Hunter has sent me this report of her mid-week walk on 31st March.

On Thursday a party of eleven of us started off from the car park at Cobble Hey Farm through fields and paths down to the River Brock. It was a sunny, dry day but the wind was very strong, leading to a few wobbles on the top of stiles, but Aussie did sterling work holding us up. By the river however it was sheltered and warm with signs of Spring everywhere. Brian Bennett even managed to spot a dipper ( of the feathered variety) and I think everyone enjoyed the walk. There was a picnic site at Brock Mill so we lunched in unaccustomed style, seated at tables and benches. There was also provision for portable barbecues, which sadly nobody had thought to pack in their rucksacks! We then made our way to Cobble Hey farm, which in itself is a very interesting place to visit with unusual breeds of animals. They also have a cafe serving tea and cakes, which is an obligatory part of weekday walks these days.

Doreen.
