ARS had a reasonable attendance for its MidARS (medium) walk on Saturday.

Strictly following the Covid guidance/rules/laws, 13 souls enjoyed a 7 mile circular walk around the cliffs and woods near Frodsham and Helsby. Our first view point was Mersey View, the northern end of the Sandstone Trail, which starts at a town close to Audlem (Whitchurch).

Glorious though the views were at that point, they did improve when we arrived on Helsby Hill, which is where the Socially Distanced photograph was taken. Both of Liverpool's cathedrals could now be seen, as well as the Wirral, the Mersey estuary and both Runcorn bridges.

The second photo was taken close by, and brought up memories of a failed campaign to place Audlem into Wales (mainly to get free prescriptions as I recall!).

So was this a Welsh Border Patrol (very low cost) to keep us out?

Was it a land grab? (It was on the wrong side of the border!)

A scarecrow competition?

Or a bit of fun with a pumpkin for Halloween?

Bob Cartwright would definitely have had a view, but we'll let our readers decide for themselves.
