Brief reports of walks and activities will be posted here after the events

On Sunday 13th January seven members visited Kilpeck where we were given a fascinating guided tour of the church by Diana Thomas.
She explained some of the symbolism of the amazing carved corbels and other architectural features of this beautiful Norman church.
Afterwards we climbed the motte of the adjacent castle to see the remaining stonework of the keep, and to admire the views.

Visit our Flickr site for pictures of the visit.
