|May 26th Walk Report
From Knolls Green near Mobberley, Sonia Brown and Audrey Hyslop led us on an easy walk through the
lush Cheshire countryside. An unseasonal Manchester monsoon had left the field paths wetter than usual,
but the weather was kind. We started with a lovely bluebell wood, and a sight of a young foal, before we
visited the most interesting church of St.Wilfred at Mobberley. George Leigh Mallory, the mountain
climber lost high on Everest in 1924, is commemorated in a stained glass window in the North Aisle. In
fact, 6 rectors of the church were from the extended Mallory family.
We had a brief rest under a large tree which many of us thought was one of the types of Oak found in the UK. It appeared to have the remains of flowers left on short suspended fronds which seemed strange for an Oak. The leaves have been scanned on 1mm grid.
We continued passed the bird garden, alas no longer open to the public, and managed to resist the
temptation of the 4 pubs between the Church Inn and the Mob Cap, until retreating from Antrobus
Bridge to a lunch stop at the Bird in Hand. Thanks to Sonia and Audrey for a most interesting walk. Walter Mason
