‘Beating the Bounds’

“Helen’s annual trecks round the boundary of Chaddesley parish are hard to beat !”  Ouch !! “Every year I lead this walk and afterwards many say "I wish I'd known you were doing it, I would love to do that!" Well, now is your chance. Would you like to come on a lovely walk and continue the ancient annual tradition of 'Beating the Bounds'? Over hundreds of years gone past the boundary of many parishes in the country were walked to check that stock, fencing and paths were in good repair and no one from an adjoining Parish had taken any of our land! In order to remember the boundary for the next year the boys were beaten with birch sticks so they wouldn't forget!! We will just be walking for fun and not doing any beating! SUNDAY MAY 19th 2019 - 9am until about 4.30pm? We   will   walk   the   16   or   so   miles   around   the   boundary   of   Chaddesley   Corbett   Parish   and   have   a   picnic   lunch   somewhere   on   the   way round.   You   don’t   have   to   walk   it   all   just   do   as   much   as   you   feel   able.   It’s   not   arduous   just   a   long   way   but   prepare   for   all   conditions! It's lovely to use some different footpaths and see some maybe unfamiliar parts of your locality. Please   call   into   the   flower   room*   or   phone   me   on   777808   to   put   you   name   on   the   list   and   find   out   where   we   will   start   or   where   you can join in on the way round. Many thanks. Helen England
