Seven intrepid (foolhardy?) ramblers and one small dog braved the weather to go to Biddulph Moor. The drive there was through torrential rain and flooded roads, but the rain eased when we arrived at Biddulph Grange. Even so we started out wading uphill though fields running with water, and the views of Cheshire from the top were rather watery. After lunch in the pub, we strolled round Biddulph Grange Gardens, which the National Trust have restored to their eccentric Victorian state.
