Picnic time on the Hill

For the last few years a number of Crickley veterans have met up, usually on the first Saturday in August, for a picnic on the hill and to gaze at that unbeatable view.

We tend to meet at about 2 p.m. in the picnic area that now exists outside the rampart, enjoy the food and drink, catch up with what's happening in everyone's lives and then persuade Phil to take us on a walk round the hill and give us an update on his latest thinking and on where he's got to with the continuing labour of love that will one day result in publication.

Attendees have included Philip Dixon, Richard Savage, Lydia Savage, Terry Courtney, Iain Ferris, Chris Phillpotts, Jim Irvine, John Parry, Ros Cleal, Corky Gregory, Jenny Tinker, Steve Vaughan, Joanne Vaughan, Rebecca Chambers, Paul Noakes, Arwel Barrett, Malcolm White & Julian Parker. There may well have been others that are missing from that list which is from memory.
