Congleton Ramblers’ walks
Congleton Ramblers couldn’t have had a better day for their Hulme End walk on 3rd February.
There were blue skies, sunshine, snow on the ground, and virtually no wind.
The walk started from the old station at Hulme End, and the first bit was a climb up Ecton Hill. They followed the old leat contouring around the hillside, past the outdoor centre and up past the old engine house, before dropping down to Wetton Mill for elevenses.
The frozen ground and snow, made the valley walk onwards to Butterton mud-free for once.
Butterton is one of a few doubly thankful villages – it has a plaque stating that all servicemen returned from both First and Second World Wars.
