51 GHB Ward Commemorative Walk

About

Quiet woods start the route followed by a meander along a country lane to take in a fine old Hall.  Passing Storth Lodge; Bert Ward spent much of his life here, we proceed to Brown Edge and the start of moorlands.  Here we swing around Wimble Home hill and cross Totley Moss to reach Longshaw Estate.  Tea and scones could be the order of the day before ascending to White Edge, to visit Lady’s Cross and Smeekley Woods.  The latter part of the route uses paths over mixed farmland to return to Homesfield and a welcome pint.
