Friday June 19th 2015: Of Wet and of Wildness; Odie Robey's Olchon Valley

This was a great walk though I say so myself, much enjoyed by a lively and enthusiastic group with a range of associations with the area and with Odie Robey herself. Thanks to Anita for the great photo. We explored the lanes beneath Odie Robey's former home near Black Darren and imagined the life she described in the Olchon Valley in the harsh winter of 1947. We also visited Llanveynoe church where members of families referred to in Of Wet and of Wildness are buried.
