Daresbury village is famous as the place where Alice started her adventures into Wonderland.
Whitley WI walking group were very lucky with the March weather. Sunshine after many days of rain, although still a bit wet and muddy underfoot.Nine suitably dressed members started the walk at The Ring O’Bell’s Inn at Daresbury.
We crossed the busy A56 into The Firs woodland, walked along the Bridgewater canal, meeting another group of walkers coming in the opposite direction – all 52 of them. From Hobb Lane Bridge we crossed back over the A56, through “Cream Fields” (nationally notorious for a summer music festival venue). We did see snowdrops and were eventually back on the road past Daresbury Church, to our starting point and our Lunch destination. (Approx 6.1km)
A few of members ambled rather than rambled and got quite a way behind, but all enjoyed the fresh spring air.
Many thanks to Ann O’B for organising us yet again, a lovely morning out.
