‘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
