5th Hyde Cubs and Scouts braved freezing conditions on an evening ramble from Compstall to Gee Cross. The walk took palace on the last Thursday before the clocks went forward to ensure the whole walk was in darkness. Snow was still on the ground in places but the evening was incredibly clear – even if a bit cold.

Scouts used GPS Compasses and maps to navigate their way through the country park, footpaths and secluded country lanes.

Cubs used the fantastically clear night to spot landmarks across the whole of Greater Manchester from the top of Werneth Low.
