As the storm rages and the rain pelts the windows in our house I thought it may be nice to cast our minds to the start of Spring!

We are proposing the have our next walk on Sunday the 15th March 2020.

After the long wet spell the Moss Valley is starting to dry out under foot. I walked in the valley yesterday and it was reasonable on the main tracks in most places. There are still parts which are very muddy indeed. I will keep checking on conditions.

A favourite spot for a welcome pint

Our walk will probably be via Fold Farm, Mill Dams, Bramley, Eckington Woods, Bolehill, Middle Handley & Buttersick Farm to the Travellers at Apperknowle. Returning to the Gate via ‘Red Lane’ skirting the airfield.

More information to follow as conditions hopefully improve.

Cheers ~ Bob Simpson.
