A stroll around the bound­aries

St Oswald’s Walk­ing Group

Ashbourne News Telegraph - - CLUBS & SOCIETIES -

AUDREY and Mike were in charge of this month’s walk, which was a re­peat of part of the May 2015 route, and part of the Brails­ford Group of Parishes bound­ary walk.

Start­ing from Brails­ford Church and end­ing at Youl­g­reave, a rather de­pleted number of walk­ers fol­lowed at­trac­tive field paths and quiet lanes to Shirley (church number one).

From there it was through Os­mas­ton Park to Os­mas­ton (church number two), and more fields to Ed­las­ton (church number three).

The last church of the day was Youl­g­reave. The to­tal dis­tance of 8.5 miles was com­pleted in record time.

The group has in the past used the idea of plot­ting a route which visits a few churches on the way. The St Oswald’s group of parishes has been linked on two oc­ca­sions as a “Ro­ga­tion Walk”.

We have also linked to­gether Tiss­ing­ton, Brad­bourne, Bal­li­don and Par­wich. And of course, we com­pleted the 39mile Peak Pil­grim­age Walk from Ilam to Eyam in 2017, vis­it­ing 13 churches al­to­gether. Our next walks will be on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24. Con­tact Jackie on 01335 370782 for de­tails.
