Our November walk started from Underwood and followed a route across open country to Selston, over paths reputed to have been walked by the famous author D.H.Lawrence.
26 of us started from the Hole in the Wall pub, the name believed to have originated from the Civil War, when canons were presumably fired at the building. At one time, it was possible to count over 30 coal mines in this area, and there are views across the Erewash valley, although a bit limited on the day of our walk!
On return, we set ourselves up in the pub for our traditional before-Christmas lunch, which concluded our shortened, although very welcome, walking season this year.
We will resume in January, all being well, with a local walk in the Ravenshead area.
