18 hardy walkers set off on our September walk, a Penshaw Monument Circular led by Joan Fowler.

Setting off from Herrington Country Park and climbing the hill to the Monument, a stop here to adjust to the altitude, then downhill towards Offerton, then left onto the Long Lonnen down to the disused railway track, a pleasant tree lined area heading towards Penshaw.

On reaching our path to the monument we climbed to the base of the hill then down to our finish.

Thank you, Joan, for leading our walk which was enjoyed by all.
