Walking with Rosie (a walk around the Slad valley)

The Slad Valley is the backcloth to Laurie Lee’s most popular novel “Cider with Rosie” chronicling life in post WW1 rural England. While the motorcar and modern conveniences have since changed the lifestyle of rural England greatly, the landscapes and villages retain much of their rural character and brought the novel a little more to life. Only 7km long, our route took us from ridge top to ridge top, across the Slad Valley and back. While really only about a 2 hour walk, photography and chance encounters with other walkers stretched it out to four.
