25 FU3A intrepid members and 3 dogs undertook a pleasant 4 mile walk on
Saturday morning of the 6th of November. Led by Clare Clayton and Bob Reeve
the walk had to be hastily re-routed due to some submerged footpaths
following heavy rains earlier in the week. However the new route gave good
opportunities to see some beautiful landscape views across Dorset’s “green
and pleasant”. As well as taking in the Spetisbury Rings and the remnants
of Spetisbury Railway Station part of the long defuncted Somerset and Dorset
Joint Railway (closed in 1956). But now part of a local restoration project.
Most members retired to the adjacent Café – “The Shack” for some well earned
coffee and cake – very nice too. An excellent morning all round with some
fair weather too.
