Directions from A534: Turn up besides the Sandstone Inn, branch left at sloping T-junction, go 50 yards and after the second house (building site) turn left into track (footpath fingerpost) + signs for MCFS / Vine House.  Park in courtyard or, if full, continue on to park in adjacent field.  (Many SatNavs do not recognise the track).

Walk: 5 miles and 600 feet of ascent as we go over Bickerton hill to Larkton Hall.  Afterwards, survivors can “enjoy” some home-made mincepies, maybe a chocolatey treat and a cuppa !  Non-survivors will be composted!

(Upcoming event: Our very own mini walking festival on Wed 26th Feb from the Plough Inn at Whitegate with an optional lunch there afterwards.  Walks from 2 to 6 miles.  If you wish to walk and have a lunch then you need to book before Feb 15th 2020.  For full details see the 26th Feb info.)
