Basset Fauve walk (North)
On Sunday 9th September we held a Fauve walk at Marbury Country Park near Northwich in Cheshire.
There was a great turnout as people travelled from as far as Cumbria, York, Doncaster, Leeds and Gloucester as well as many from within Cheshire, in total 22 Fauves and 10 honorary Fauves attended.
The walk was around 5 miles in length covering scenic trails and woodland as well as canal paths and a stop at the Anderton Boat Lift. The boat lift is the the only remaining one of its kind in the UK. It moves canal boats and small motor boats to and from the river Weaver and the Trent and Mersey Canal.
After the walk we were treated to a wonderful picnic including sandwiches a variety of French food and deserts accompanied by both soft and alcoholic drinks and a much needed rest before everyone set of on their journeys home.
We are planning to repeat the walk at the same venue next year during the summer months, watch this space for further information.
