April Mid-length Walk

Our walk in April was a 6.5 mile circular starting from The Cross Keys Pub in Epperstone. Led by John and Sue Beharall, it was a lovely rural walk with gentle rolling fields and good views of the countryside. We had the usual mud but our group is well used to that! The weather was great and for the first time this year we had lovely sunshine, apparently ordered by John! The walk concluded with a drink in The Cross Keys.

Our next walk will be on Monday, 21st May, 2018 – this is a Gonalston circular, led by Dave Kay and Ian Raynor

Unfortunately I had to cancel our March walk because of the ‘Mini Beast from the East’!! With minus temperatures and icy footpaths, it would have been too hazardous to risk walking with a group in Derbyshire. Better safe than sorry.
Our next walk will be on Monday 16th April. It’s a 6-mile walk from Epperstone, led by John and Sue Beharall.

February Mid-length Walk

Our February walk was from The Ex-Servicemen’s Club in Warsop. We arrived to find that the approach road to the club was closed but several texts later everyone had arrived at the new parking place and on time! The walk was a pleasant, relatively easy-going 6.5 mile walk over reclaimed pit sites, woods, dismantled railway track and quiet lanes. We were treated to some fine views.
Thank you to Greg Umney for taking us on a walk that no one had done before.
Our next walk will be on: Monday 19th March 2018 from Kelstedge, Derbyshire.

Mid-Length Walk in the Mud

In January, we revisited Wellow, this time to walk north east of the village on a mixture of farm tracks, woodland, fields plus a little distance on a linking road. The song repeatedly sung was ‘mud, mud, glorious mud’, conditions not being helped at all by rain, sometimes very heavy. Ploughing had also taken place a day or two previously and then on the most distant field we caught up with the farmer busy turning that field over. He saw our plight and kindly created an improvised track for us with his large wheels. Big congratulations and thanks to all of the 27 walkers brave enough to take part!


Our reward was a belated ‘Christmas lunch’ at The Olde Red Lion, very efficiently served and most welcome. Thanks to Paul and Steph Haigh for organising the whole day.

Our next walk will be to Warsop, on Monday February 19th
