Walk report

This article is from Signpost 46, Spring 2014

Some of you will remember the excellent talk given by Tom Lonsdale, a landscape architect, at the November 2013 Half Year Meeting.

Long walk leader Alan Talbot took a group to visit one of the stones. Peter Gunn sent the following report and pictures, plus the front cover photo:

In March a group of members took a walk from Marsden station across the moor to Standedge and returned to Marsden via Pule Hill quarry to visit the Stanza Stone.

This is the first of four stones engraved with poetry penned by Simon Armitage the theme of which is the elements.

This stone is aptly entitled "SNOW" as chance would have it that we did indeed encounter a snow flurry on Standedge.
