|Everyone at the start. Who are all these people?!!!!!
|The Suspension Bridge
|Climbing up over A483 near Burton
We took a steady ascent through Golly, where we re-grouped - had not seen the others for a little while. We carried on up and then crossed the main Llay road, to climb a little bit round Caer Estyn (an iron age Celtic hill fort - opposite to Caergwrle Castle built by a Welsh Prince) - an then to drop fairly spectacularly into Hope by the bridge.
Many photos were taken by all at the cafe. A very friendly and helpful cafe, with some seats outside so we could soak up even more sun.
Here are a selection of photos:
Kath led her group off first - remember the spectacular descent I described into Hope?....they were heading up that!
We went the other way, and after a very short climb we crossed the main road again and were in the lanes near Kinnerton. Including a loooong drop to the other end of Kinnerton!
