Walk: Darmsden and the Gipping Valley

[Darmsden church]

Distance: 3.90 miles
Ascent: 87 metres
Duration: 1 hour 42 minutes

Despite the cold, despite the drizzle, Emma and I got out for a short walk this morning.

The walk was beside a disused quarry about to be given a new life, across farmland thick from ploughing, through a wood and beside a river.

I packed a lunch but left it in the car. We found a disused church with a porta-potty loo. We walked under fizzing power lines.

But all these things are incidental. We talked as we walked and I realised how much I miss company on my regular trudging round the country.
