Congratulations to Marian, who led six Erlangen walking friends and Club member Irmgard on the 84 miles (135 km) of the Hadrian's Wall Path! Immense thanks to Adrian, who drove the people carrier and to Irmgard who organised the accommodation. Christine and Simon joined them for the last two days. The weather was mostly reasonable, the views outstandig and the historical background fascinating. The 1st photo shows us at the abutment of the Roman bridge over the river Irthing, the second at a signpost attraction one mile from the western end and the third the pavilion at the end of the walk at Bowness-on-Solway. Veni vidi vici!
Club member Rev Terry Bloor, who is priest-in charge of St Margaret’s Wolstanton, Newcastle-under-Lyme talks about the group pilgrimage he undertook last year to German towns with a Luther connection.
