Sunday, 10th March 2019   WINCLE PICKERS    10 miles  5 hrs   Grade 2
Start Time: 10:00am    Grid Ref: SJ936624. Meet at The Knot Inn, Station Road, Rushton Spencer. Postcode SK11 0QU.
Starting at The Knot Inn we quickly join the Staffordshire Way before heading on to the Gritstone Trail. A mixture of woodland and rolling countryside follows before a climb is rewarded by expansive views across the Cheshire Plain (on a clear day!). The first pub stop of the day at The Ship Inn, Wincle follows, then a swift visit to the nearby Wincle Brewery. We'll then head back towards Rushton Spencer, via the Dane Valley, for a cheeky post walk pint at The Knot Inn. There are a few short, sharp climbs on this walk so remember to pack your climbing legs. Gaiters recommended. Lunch required.

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
