Blue sky and a little wind, perfect walking weather. Just over 20 people left Keld URC chapel for what is now a traditional Good Friday walk of reflection up some hills and down Swaledale to St Andrew's church at Grinton. We stopped for lunch at Gunnerside Methodist chapel which was one of 14 stops where we reflected on what the cross meant for us. People young and old took part, sharing the readings and carrying the cross. Some walked all the way, others joined us as the day moved on and at the conclusion of the walk there were hot cross buns and a short service.
