Coronation Parish Walk 8th May '23
Despite the threat of dire weather, 19 walkers set off this morning on the Parish Walk. The route: Village Hall-Turn Hill-Charity Farm-Beer Drove-River Cary-Henley Chapel-Poorclose Lane-Fountain. (Nb. In the group photos some walkers are hiding in the back row!) For most of the 12000+ steps, 6 miles ish, stretches of mud, the rain held off! There have been 10 previous Parish Walks - look out for news of the next one.
Battle of Langport Anniversary Parish Walk 20th July
Which are you, Royalist or Puritan? A belated walk to mark The Battle of Langport 10th July 1645, the battle site located in the southerly end of High Ham Parish. Walkers from HH and Huish Episcopi used footpaths to access the site of the battle, which was a Parliamentarian victory late in the First English Civil War which destroyed the last Royalist field army and gave Parliament control of the West of England, which had been a major source of manpower, raw materials and imports for the Royalists. Of the 8 walkers, I was the only Royalist, the rest, Puritans! Thank you to Shirley Robinson for leading the walk.
Platinum Jubilee Parish Walk 4th June
Dave Vigar led 21 one of us into the woods…a lovely walk Parish Walk across fields to Turn Hill, Wood Lane to Breech Woods and across more fields back to HH. The sun shone, the rain never came. 3/4 years ago the regular HH Parish Walks stopped - look out for news of another Parish Walk, later in the year.
