10 of us left Strode Car Park making our way to Backwell. We parked in the car park at Backwell Football Club for Our walk of about 4.35 miles.
On leaving the car park by the football pitches and out around some lanes to the Main road crossing and continuing up some more lanes to fields where the new water pipe was laid. Making our way over to Backwell tip. Crossing the busy road nearly to Backwell Church. We then took some tracks up to Badgers Wood taking the steep path by the side of the quarry. A slow pace was needed, eventually getting to the top with good views overlooking the quarry, while having coffee.
We made our way over to the Jubilee stone and then through the new gate into the field stopping to take in the view. On reaching the far end of the field we had to make a hasty retreat to the bottom of the field because we were being chased by a muck spreader! Coming out of the field making our way down the track to the church, in and around the church and more fields back to the main road. Then back to the cars for a pub lunch at the Jubilee inn at Flax Bourton.
