Boots made for walking

Huntingdonshire ramblers turned out in their numbers to walk off the Christmas excesses during the annual Festival of Winter Walks. Snow greeted the ramblers as they set off on a 10-mile circular trek through the countryside from Woodwalton via Upwood.

Huntingdonshire ramblers turned out in their numbers to walk off the Christmas excesses during the annual Festival of Winter Walks. Snow greeted the ramblers as they set off on a 10-mile circular trek through the countryside from Woodwalton via Upwood.Members were treated to a tour of the mid-13th century church at Woodwalton, even venturing up the narrow dark steps to the bell tower, by John Chance, chairman of the Friends of St Andrew's Church. A place of worship was recorded at Woodwalton in the Domesday survey of 1086.Thanks to the work of the voluntary committee, the church is now maintained to a safe condition allowing controlled public access. The building has also been put forward as a possible contender for the next series of the BBC's Restoration series.Some of the ramblers are pictured here outside St Andrew's Church, before heading to the Cross Keys pub for their usual sandwich and pint.INFORMATION: Huntingdonshire Ramblers provide walks each weekend - new members always welcome.
