In June, the Mid-Length Walking Group enjoyed a pleasant walk at Holme Pierrepont National Water Sports Centre. Passing the White-Water Rapids, we followed the rowing course by the River Trent to the Water Skiing Centre where we had our elevenses.
After a stroll through Skylarks Nature Reserve, we came across the Skylarks Experimental Saxon Village. Unfortunately, it has been severely vandalised and the two volunteers who happened to be there gave us an interesting talk about its history and what they hope to eventually achieve.
Dinner was eaten overlooking the Rowing Course then back via the Yacht Club to the car park. All in all, a lovely walk on a lovely day.
Those who are interested can view details of the Saxon Village on Facebook- “Skylarks Experimental Archaeology”.
Our thanks go to Philip and Liz Attenborough.
