Long Walks

Our walk for August was in the Meden Vale, and very nice it was too. It was a pleasant walk of 8.5 miles which took us over surprisingly good paths considering all the rain we’ve had. Good field paths, quiet country lanes  and through woodland, a nice variety.  

We set off from the car park in Church Warsop, which appropriately enough was called The Carrs, proceeding through the church yard , across fields to Oakwood Plantation and on to Cuckney. We went from Cuckney onto Norton picking up the Robin Hood Way through Corrunna Hill Plantation to Hazel Gap and back to Church Warsop. We were a little depleted as quite a lot of our usual walkers seemed to be on grandparent babysitting duties due to the school holidays.

The rain managed to keep off and we had a good walk full of stimulating conversation, or not, as the case maybe.

Our walks are generally around 8-9 miles of easy walking, not too taxing; we have a coffee break and a lunch stop and cover some interesting places.  So anyone wishing to join please come along and join us, all are welcome.
