In August we set off from the canal side car park at Whatstandwell for a steady uphill climb and over the museum tram tracks to the Regimental Memorial above Crich.
This is a Mercian Regiment War Memorial dedicated to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the Mercian Regiment and its antecedents; the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters and the Sherwood Foresters.
We had a short lunch break to admire the view before the starting the downhill trek back to the start.
Full marks for determination must go to Albert Briggs making his comeback to the group ably supported by Carol and Carole!
Thanks to Roy Brown for organising and guiding the route- which was our first venture into Derbyshire since before ‘lockdown’.
