Our latest foray into the great outdoors was an 8 mile walk at Alderwasley. We started our walk at the Hurt Arms at Ambergate,along the banks of the River Derwent and through Shining Cliff Woods and through Alderwasley Park, the grounds to the old hall, which is now a school. It was good under foot as we walked on good trails and quiet country lanes.
We came through the village of Alderwasley, sneeze and you would have missed it, back along Jackass Lane and again through Shining Cliff Woods and back to the Hurt Arms for a well earned pint. It was a glorious day but not too hot; just right for walking.
It had a couple of hills, but nothing too taxing. It did rain once, a short, sharp shower, But we were able to shelter in a barn, along with some new born calves. Everyone enjoyed the day and we are all looking forward to the next walk. If anyone wishes to join the group there is plenty of space for new members all are welcome.
