gradbach luds church map walk

11.Gradbach luds church walk 13th April 2013

Our attention was drawn to the wet ground opposite the car park on the road towards Gradbach Mill where a few people were looking and pointing. On closer inspection the boggy ground was full of frogs and frogspawn. I had never seen so many in one place. We walked along the road to Gradbach Mill which is now a youth hostel. After a couple of photos we set off along the path towards the woods. It became busier as we neared Luds Church. Parties of teenagers presumably from Gradbach Mill youth hostel milled around( must have been the training). It was impressive… not the milling around… I mean the rocks …definitely worth a visit, creating a creepy mini canyon with the profile of the green Knight's head to find in the craggs.
