Roaches Ramble - 26th March 2017
Wow! Weather like this in March? It couldn't have been better for a superb walk along the Roaches ridge in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Although there were only ten participants and a few more Beardies, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the walk, and the last minute switch of refreshment venue from the tea rooms to the Rock Inn at Upper Hulme was serendipitous!
Leicestershire Ramble - 9th April 2017
Unbelievable! Perfect weather AGAIN! Our ramble along the River malvern was held under perfect blue skies and it was certainly warm enough for the Beardies to cool off in the river. A really nice feature of the walk was the half-way refreshment stop - in the lovely garden of Angela's parents' house. A big thankyou to Angela and her folks for the great hospitality - and a chance to see Beardie new arrival Millie!
Churnet Valley Ramble - 16th July 2017
This was one of the best supported rambles to have been hosted by Midland Branch in the last ten years. Twenty-five happy people and about twenty Beardies met at Froghall to walk canalside to the Black Lion Inn at Consall. After a leisurely lunch, there were several options available including walking a further two miles to Cheddleton which a number of the party did. The weather improved during the walk and proved ideal for our Beardies.
Malvern Hills Ramble - 13th August 2017
Gorgeous sunny weather accompanied this delightful ramble over some of the most attractive hill scenery in the Midlands. Although modest in number, the group of Beardies and their owners spent enjoyed a few hours of walking and pic-nicking in ideal conditions. A big thankyou to Pat forproviding cake and tea at the end of the walk. Our grateful thanks also goes to Chris Bennett and David Dalby for providing the gorgeous photographs.
Rushcliffe Country Park Ramble - 24th September 2017
Yet another sunny day for a ramble organised at short notice by Angela Butler at a new venue for the branch, Rushcliffe Country Park near Ruddington, Notts. Thanks to Angela for providing the photographs.
