was held on the River Wye at Moccas on
Thursday, 28th August 2008, by
kind permission of the Chester-Master family. It was a very
occasion, which began with a tour, given by
one of the churchwardens, of the
early Norman church at Bredwardine, where
the famous Victorian diarist, Francis Kilvert, was vicar from 1877-1889. The afternoon continued with two fascinating walks
from Cross End Farm. The first walk, in the Home Park, was led by Francis
Chester-Master and the other, in the lower part of the Deer Park,
was led by Tim Dixon of Natural England.
During the course of the afternoon, members were delighted to see
a pair of Peregrine Falcons. After the walks, the members enjoyed
a picnic together in the courtyard of Cross End Farm. Some
pictures of the event appear below.
