January Mid-Length Walk

Our next walk will be an Architectural Awareness Walk/Quiz in Nottingham City Centre, on Monday, January 21st, 2019 (10:15 am start). We will be placed into four groups on arrival, so I would appreciate it if you could let me know whether you intend to come along or not. We intend to eat in The Bell Inn afterwards and you will need to have pre-ordered your food with me before the day.

Our group is full but I have a waiting list. To contact Sue Tedstone, the group Co-ordinator, please use the form below:-

November Mid-length Walk

In November our walk was from The Unicorn Hotel and Pub at Gunthorpe Bridge. Our 5-mile circular took us along the River Trent to Burton Joyce, where we had coffee by the river and then returned via a different route. Most people hadn’t walked in that direction before and were surprised to find out how pleasant the views were.

As this was our last walk of the year, all 31 of us had lunch at The Unicorn, which was very efficiently served and most welcome.

We have several new walk leaders for next year, which is great news because it takes the pressure off our regulars. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work; we have a great team and a thriving group. All our walk leaders met at the beginning of November and we have 2019 mapped out.

Our next walk will be an Architectural Awareness Walk in Nottingham City Centre, on Monday January 21st 2019.

October Mid-Length Walk

Despite a slightly damp start twenty-eight brave souls enjoyed walking both the old Nottingham Canal and the Erewash Canal from Langley Mill to Awsworth and back, some 6.8 miles.

We managed to avoid all of the muddy fields by taking a detour around the sewage works and ended up at the Great Northern Pub for the usual debrief and refreshments!

Thank you to Philip and Liz Attenborough; this was lovely walk.

Our next walk will be on Monday, November 19th,
From: The Unicorn Pub at Gunthorpe Bridge to Burton Joyce with (optional) lunch.

September’s Mid-length Walk

After receiving a briefing on the history of the village of Heage, including tales of murder and ghosts, the 21 strong group set off on a “gently undulating” walk which circled the village, taking in the unique and picturesque Heage windmill. One of the group had a close encounter with a tree but she survived! The weather held out and we enjoyed some super views.

Thanks go to Mark and Lynda Jackson.

October’s Walk is a canal walk, starting from Langley Mill (6.5 miles)

August Mid-length Walk

Our August walk started in the lovely village of Litton in Derbyshire. It was advertised as a ‘Five Dales Walk’ and we walked through Tansley, Cressbrook, Water-Cum-Jolly, Miller’s and Tideswell Dales. Walking conditions were generally good apart from the steep descent into Tansley Dale (sorry everyone!). It was a really interesting walk with lots to see and beautiful landscapes. We negotiated 3 stone step stiles and I can report that we all got over them with ease (this time!). Our group’s skills can be quite impressive on occasions!! After 6.7 miles of strenuous exercise, a drink at The Red Lion Pub in Litton was most welcome. Thank you to John Tedstone for leading the walk.

On Monday, 17th September, our walk will be starting from Heage in Derbyshire.
