The walk on Tuesday 10th September was round the Longshaw Estate led by Val.Very nice six mile walk, although quite hard in places. Five people attended including myself, weather was perfect, had nice stop at Grindleford Station cafe for lunch and we were back in time for a drink at Longshaw Café before leaving for home.
It was a full day thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, although some aches and pains afterwards due to the uneven surfaces.
However a big thank you to Val for a very scenic, lovely day.

Next walk will be to Longshaw Estate, walking approximately 4 or 5 miles round walk. There is a very nice cafe on the Estate. The walks are on well laid paths and all gates no stiles. It will be a car share event, so if we have not got enough cars we will have to revert to a local walk
It is a National Trust Estate, so parking is free as long as you get a ticket with a national trust membership card.
Val has agreed to lead the walk, which will start at the cenotaph in Bolsover at 10.00 am on Tuesday 10th September.

Walking for Pleasure Group will be taking to the Peak District hills next Tuesday 13thAugust when, after parking at Curbar Gap (parking fee), we will amble across the edges of Baslow, Gardoms, stopping for refreshments at the Robin Hood before returning via Birchens Edge.
However if the present inclement weather persists then an alternative will be to park in Ashford before walking up Pennyunck Lane to Monsal Head, through the dale,returning to Ashford via Shacklow Woods for a welcome cream tea at the café in the village.
Both are approximately 6 miles. Wear suitable walking boots & clothing as it will be wet underfoot in places & there are some stiles.
Meet at 10am prompt at Bolsover Cenotaph where we will decide on walk and car sharing.

The Walk held on 9th July was arranged for Hardwick led by Maggie. Sadly only two members arrived to take part, nevertheless we had a very nice walk round all the fishing ponds up to the hall cafe for hot chocolate and then back down via the woods and Duck Decoy back to car. Approx 3.5 miles. A very pleasant walk. Many thanks to Maggie.
The next Walk will be led by Pam, in the Peak District. The venue will be weather dependant. So watch this space.

The Walking for Pleasure group will be meeting on Tuesday 9th April at Cenotaph Bolsover 10.00 am. We aim to car share to Cromford (Car parking fee will be needed) then walk along the Canal tow path to Ambergate. (Anyone who feels that the five miles is too much for them can stop at Whatstandwell) We will then catch a train back to Cromford (train fare needed) where we can all meet up again, maybe take some time to look around etc, before heading back to Bolsover.
Everyone is welcome to join us.

It has been decided that todays walk is cancelled due to the weather. Not only getting wet but getting blown off our feet and dangerous under trees. Will do this walk at a later date.
more information will follow.
Friday 8th March
We meet again on Tuesday 12th March for our fifth walk. We will be meeting in the usual place at Bolsover Cenotaph, 10am and depending on transport availability we will be going to Linacre (Car park charges apply) to start a walk around the reservoirs. It will be a short walk this month of only 3/4 miles, but should be very pleasant with everything starting to come to life for spring. There are toilets but no catering facilities so please feel free to bring drinks etc.
