One Sunday, a couple of weekends ago when the sun was actually shining, a band of energetic young members enjoyed a glorious countryside stroll. After leaving the Thongsbridge clubhouse they navigated a network of paths through fields and woodland in and around Brockholes, Thurstonland, Farnley Tyas and Castle Hill, returning around the rim of the valley with superb views. Thanks to Graham Harker for planning the route and organising the walk.
