Craven Arms

Sunday dawned fair, but sadly not in Craven Arms!  Not to be deterred a group of hardy GOCers from around the country set off on the planned 11 miles route.  From the vantage point on the hill over looking the village of Hope Say the group had a coffee and watched the cloud cover on the Iron Age Hill Fort which was the lunch stop. The group walked down the hill into Hope Say as planned where they visited the unusual village church.  Having decide to abandon the visit to the hill fort for safety reasons the group proceed to the village of Aston on Clun. Any disappointment at missing the fort was mitigated by the leader informing them that the back marker Chris would be entertaining the group at lunch with his thingybob!!  Chris's thingybob turned out to be a recorded device that detailed the history of the only Arbor Tree continuously decorated since the restoration of the Monarchy in 1660.  Amazed by Chris's performance the group ate their lunch under the rare Black Poplar tree where we enjoyed the last shower of they day.  Returning in sunshine to Craven Arms for tea and cake in the grounds of the Discovery Centre.
