PUB RUN – MOSTERTON (20TH April 2023)
From Mark: I went tonight expecting to do the usual on-road loop, but everyone wanted to go off-road, so without a map, using only memory we ran the summer mostly off-road route instead. Five of us (Sue, Louise, JC, Rob, and myself) set off across fields in the sunshine heading towards South Perrott. It was going to be a muddy run. The Langmoor lane (track) with its picturesque stream took us to the village. We continued northwards to Pipplepen farm, and turned left. A footbridge took us over a ford. Next we continued across fields, one of which had a herd of small cows. The cows came over to greet us but behaved well. We reached the road, crossed over then ran paths through the back of Misterton. We passed a football match going on, some goats, the allotments, and steep steps down to the main road. Next we picked up the Liberty trail where we climbed to a ridge and followed hedgerows. A muddy rutted track took us to the edge of some woods which we followed along to the road. Turning right, after a short climb we then followed a track up to the top of Knowle hill. The last leg was along Mosterton Down lane which undulated and took us back down to the pub. It was Pie night, so there was pie of your choice with help yourself vegetables. An optional pudding could also be included at a very reasonable price. There were 10 of us in total and it was a good evening. Thanks Phil for organising.
