Guild Walking Tour report

At Longborough, L-R: Jane Gilbert, Ginny White, Wendy Mace, Joanne Roberts, Michael Cummings, Jeanette Davey, Andrew Roberts, Michael Haynes, Stuart Cummings

The Guild Ringing and Walking Tour took place on Saturday 28th September 2013.

The first tower was Moreton-in-Marsh. We had nine ringers and rang Plain Bob Doubles with 7 6 8 behind, call changes on 8 and Stedman Doubles on the back 6.

After ringing at Moreton eight of us walked to Longborough, where again we were nine ringers. We rang St. Clements Bob Minor, Little Bob Minor and call changes. After ringing down here two photographs were taken of the party by Stuart Cummings outside Longborough Church. Then eight of us went for some lunch at the Coach and Horses pub in the village.

After lunch seven of us walked to Bourton-on-the-Hill Church, where we rang touches of Plain Bob Minor, Plain Bob Doubles and Stedman Doubles. Near the end of the time here, Chris Povey, Matthew Kemble and Roland Merrick dropped in, as they were returning to Evesham after ringing for a wedding at Adlestrop, so this made ten ringers. We rang a plain course of Kent Treble Bob Minor.

Then seven of us walked back to Moreton-in-Marsh. The walk was six miles in total. We had twelve ringers take part at various times throughout the day. It was a very enjoyable day.
