Saturday 12th August President's Perambulation led by Mendip Society President Les Davies
Nearly 30 of us had a brilliant day out on Les's walk, following his talk to the society in April "Follow the plough." We had an insight into his childhood and his earliest farming experiences of which there were many.
We had a welcome break in Jackman's bridge next to the fishing ponds at the cafe.
The walk was made even more entertaining with Les's unique commentary and style, made even more informative with the assistance of Richard Ivens with his invaluable insider knowledge of the local water courses.
The sunny day was rounded off with a very pleasant finale at the Black Horse in Easton in Gordano.
