The Ramblers
Wednesday 23 April


It’s St Georges Day and Shakespeare’s birthday, but today David celebrated his own birthday by leading over 30 walkers around six Dales near Youlgreave.
An early celebration in the car park set the group in a good mood for a great 12 mile walk.

Walking weather doesn’t really get better than today. Wall to wall sunshine but cool enough not to be oppressive.
Gordon led 20 of our group ramblers, together with a visiting family of four from Hampshire, on a 14 mile walk from the Derwentwater Arms in Calver.
We had a grand Chatsworth panorama, going via Curbar, Baslow, Edensor, Pilsley, and Hassop.
A good day to share with visiting ramblers.

Thanks to Graham for leading and Cathy for the photos.


Please note the next Saturday car walk on 26 April, a Rowsley circular, will start at 10 am, not the usual 10:30.
New walkers are always welcome.

A good linear walk today for one of our two bus parties – from Pilsley (in NE Derbyshire) to Kelstedge, via Morton and Ashover – using the No. 96 Alfreton bus outwards and the X17 Chesterfield bus to return.
Many thanks to David who led the group of 15.








The Ramblers

Another reservoir walk, this time in the Goyt Valley – climbing from the Fernilee Reservoir to Taxal Edge and the aptly named Windgather Rocks, on to the Spanish Chapel and the ruins of Errwood Hall – and then down to the Errwood Reservoir.
23 made the 11 mile journey on a misty, murky day, ably led by Elayne.
