Group Members Ascend Grove Hill
Following our meeting in the Old Swan on Sept 22, some group members climbed to the top of Grove Hill - some of them for the first time in around 70 years. The beech tree is in good condition and the views from the summit of the hill are quite magnificent. Some beech nuts were recovered and it is hoped that they can be germinated.
Pauline Blakemore has shared this photo of William Hopley, b 1870. He married Susannah Jones of the Royal Oak and so began a long association of the Hopley name with that public house.
