In August we met in bright sunshine at the Plough Inn, in Farnsfield, ready to set off on a scenic, approximately 7 mile walk around the outskirts of the village.
It was a pleasant and varied walk across fields and along quiet country lanes and footpaths. The first section took us out of the village and across wheat fields up to the Edingley road, then up the lane towards Robin Hood’s Hill, a Bronze Age burial mound. A track led us around the edge of some woods, then up the final (and actually rather gentle) slope to the summit of the hill, where we were rewarded with beautiful 360 degree views across miles of Nottinghamshire countryside and well worth the effort!
After our coffee break and a chance to take in the views, it was downhill all the way, across and between fields, with a lunch stop at the Halifax Bomber Memorial site.
We arrived in the bar at the Plough just as the heavens opened – perfect timing!!
Thank you to Mandy James and Chris West for organising such a lovely walk.
OUR NEXT WALK IS ON MONDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER, FROM BELPER
