Walking for Pleasure – Archive

13th December 2018

The walk to Sutton Hall and back went very well.  Unfortunately (probably due to time of year) we only had four walkers but the weather was very good for walking.  Everyone enjoyed the walk, we did encounter a little mud in the fields but not too bad.  Did some road walking which Pam found hard work, although enjoyable looking at the old properties.  Many thanks to Maggie for arranging this.

Weather permitting we shall be going to Pleasley Pit to walk on the trails to Teversall and back on Tuesday 8th January.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will be taking a walk up to Sutton Hall and back.  It will be a approx six miles with no styles but some muddy walking.  A little road walking down Pleasley Lane could be included if fields are too muddy.  We will be out for about three hours.

We had such a lovely walk last Tuesday 13th led by Val. This was the first of what I hope will be many for the new Walking for Pleasure Group. I’ve included some photos taken on my phone. The last one was taken with Bobby the little dog who was being walked by the kindly gentleman who took the photo. We had just tackled the hill leading from the Stockley Trail & were taking a well earned breather in Palterton. Why not join us for our next little ramble in the countryside coming up soon.

It was a very good walk this morning, ground underfoot was surprisingly good for this time of year and the rain we have had recently. There was three stiles which everyone managed with leg and bum lifts. Only a small group of five but all had a very pleasant walk with lots of laughter and plenty of chatter.
I would like to offer Val many thanks for leading the walk from myself and the other walkers.
Next walk is on 11th December to meet at the cenotaph, Bolsover at 10.00 am for another local walk. More details nearer the time.

There’s a new group on the block – Walking for Pleasure.  This will take place on the second Tuesday in the month.  Meeting point will be the Market Place, Bolsover at 10 a.m.
Walking for Pleasure is classified as moderate as it will involve stiles, rough ground and hills.  However, the idea is also to enjoy nature so it will not resemble a march!
First walk will be on Tuesday 13 November 2018.
