Mid-Length Walking – August

Our August walk was from Trent Lock to the Visitor’s Centre at Attenborough Nature Reserve. Twenty Nine of us set off along the Cranfleet Canal to Cranfleet Lock and then along footpaths to Trent Meadows. We then walked alongside the River Trent to eat our lunch at the picnic benches outside the Visitor’s Centre – what a treat, not having to sit on the ground! After lunch we walked back to Trent Lock along the Trent Valley Way, picking blackberries as we went along!

This was an easy 7 mile walk, with lots of interesting things to observe on the way. We finished off with a welcome drink outside the Steamboat Inn.
Our next walk is on: Monday 18th September from the café car park at Poolsbrook Country Park, near to Chesterfield.
