This month the walk is on Thursday January 20th, 2022.
Meet at Titchfield Park car park near the junction with Caddaw Avenue at 9.45 for a 10am start. If the car park is busy there is ample parking nearby on Park Drive.

The walk is approximately 4 miles and visits Bulwell Hall before proceeding to Bestwood Lakes Country Park and returns through Butlers Hill. We will take a short break at the Forge Mill (fairly new) tea rooms for a drink stop. Bring your own or buy one at the cafe.

Twenty one members took part in the October walk from the car park of the fairly new Annesley and Newstead Country Park. Thanks to Phil Attenborough for arranging the route and leading the walk.

Our next walk will be on Thursday, 18th November 2021. We will start the walk from the Nabb Inn on Nabbs Lane. This will be led by Roy Brown and will cover some familiar ground over Beacon Hill and the Misk Hills. There are some uphill sections but generally it is not too demanding.

Thursday, 21st October – Short Walk

Liz and Philip Attenborough have kindly offered to lead the walk which starts from the car park for Newstead and Annesley Country Park.

Sat-Nav postcode: Tilford Road Parking – NG15 0BU

Meet: at 9.45 am for a 10am start

It is a fairly flat walk on good tracks and paths.

There will be a coffee break at Newstead Abbey and a stroll back to complete the walk of about 4.5 miles.

Some information about the park:-

‘We are a park with a difference. The park is run by Newstead Enterprise – a company created by the community in Newstead Village to help create a better future for ourselves. We are run by volunteers who care passionately about the village, the Park and creating a legacy for future generations.

The Park is 220 acres and is situated on the site of the former colliery pit tips. The whole area has amazing wildlife interest and the village is working with a number of environmental groups to protect and enhance the area, half of which is a ‘Site of Importance for Nature Conservation’.

Directions:
From Hucknall as you cross the railway turn immediate left then left again to the parking areas

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’.

Next Month: The walk is on Thursday September 16th, 2021
The meeting point: The car park at Colliers Wood, Moorgreen
Full details will be posted nearer the time.

October 21st, 2021: I will be walking but in the Lake District. If you can volunteer to lead the walk in October please let me know.
