Walking in Burton Joyce

In a major turn-up for the books, our walk around Burton Joyce in July took place on a really warm and sunny day. This was especially surprising as Steve Lawrence’s walks have so far been mainly associated with rain!
We set off uphill and commented on the mainly large houses which we passed. At the top of the climb, we all paused for what we thought would be the coffee stop, but in fact we carried on, although mainly on more level ground. During the stop at the church Steve explained some of the history of Burton Joyce’, including the origin of the name, and how Stoke Bardolph sewage works came to be built.
There followed a very pleasant walk along the side of a calm River Trent with a passing narrow boat, then back into Burton Joyce for a welcome drink. Fortunately, the cows by the riverside path were as docile as Steve had predicted. Many thanks to Steve and Anne Lawrence for organising this latest medium-length walk. Keep a look out for details of the next walk, on August 15th.
