A Walk around Parkend Mines with Ron Beard

Many thanks to Ron Beard for his walk and talk around old Parkend mines this afternoon. Sixty members (and 5 dogs) came along and the combination of Ron’s deep knowledge of the topic, the glorious weather and the chance to wander through our beautiful forest, made for a most pleasant afternoon.
Thanks also to Pat Beard as the picture carrier and to Keith Walker for the effective sound system.

A couple of photos –  the second one was taken at our last but one stop, where the views were stunning.
