Looking forward to August and the group’s third walk.
In June, 16 members enjoyed a 7 1/2 mile, circular, local walk taking in several sites of interest. Starting at Greasley Bogend, it included the old Watnall brick yard (sadly the two chimneys are long gone), Rolls Royce air strip (most of it now gone), the Great Northern railway cutting into Kimberley (now a very picturesque pedestrian path) and the old Kimberley brewery site (rapidly being redeveloped). The walk completed through Watnall Woods.
In July, 15 members did a 7 3/4 mile walk around Morning Springs and the Misk hills. The view from the southern end of the Misk is tremendous, stretching from Newstead Abbey grounds, across Bestwood country park and round to the water tower at Swingate, Kimberley.
August’s walk is a 7 ½ mile walk from Epperstone village.
