New Trevor's Boot Relay "Shoreham"


Trevor's Boots continue the journey to Shoreham

David and Anne carried Trevor's Boots on Section 12 Moseley Old Hall to Bentley Hall


David taking an early rest utilising a convenient post

David even found time to make a few running repairs
Bentley Cairn
David and Anne were joined at Bentley Cairn by Margaret and Ruth (Trevor's Wife and Daughter) to commemorate Trevor's involvement with the restoration of the Cairn. The local press were invited and a picture was published in several local newspapers.
Simon Roberts on Section 13: Bentley Hall to Halesowen Abbey
Simon at Bentley Cairn

 Simon at the entrance to Netherton tunnel. The right hand towpath is closed (see iron gating, right of photograph). However the remaining towpath is open and perfectly walkable, albeit in pitch darkness. So torches  were used and Simon and his brother set off into the darkness.

The remarkable length of the tunnel (1.75 miles) soon became apparent when it became clear that the tiny dot of light representing the opposite end stubbornly remained tiny, only increasing in size imperceptibly as we progressed towards it for what proved to be the best part of an hour’s steady walking. The impression was like following an underground river through a subterranean cave system, a remarkable experience. Fortunately a metal guard rail runs the length of the tunnel at the canal edge of the path at just above waist height, precluding any danger of stepping into the canal in the darkness. The path was a little water eroded in several places, and there were a few large puddles 2-3 inches in depth some way into the tunnel, but these proved no match for sturdy walking boots, so our feet were still perfectly dry when we emerged at the other end
Trevor's Boots at the end of Section 13
Arriving at the final stile in the gathering dusk (around twenty to six), we took a moment to remember Trevor before turning to head for home with his words of encouragement to spur us on: “You have now completed the traverse of the mighty West Midlands conurbation in one go - well done
Section 14 Halesowen to Bromsgrove
Trevor's Boots on this section were due to be carried by Bel Glover, however unfortunately she had to go into Hospital for an operation. She called upon the Halesowen Ramblers who have been assisting her with this section for 12 years.

Just one of the difficulties that Minders have to deal with during Trevor's Boot Relay. There were two of these Canon Type Bird Scarers across the path, thankfully they did not go off!!!
