The health benefits of walking


Seven members participated in a linear walk of about four miles from Chesterfield Railway Station to Holymoorside in grey but fine weather this morning.
As befits this type of walk the route was pretty flat but mostly traffic free and all enjoyed the exercise – and using some paths new to some.

Leader: Basil



Non-members are most welcome to join us, with no obligation, if they need a gentle introduction to walking

Birchen Edge with Nelson’s Monument



A glorious November day brought out a total of 35 members for a classic Baslow circular from the Robin Hood pub.
An anti-clockwise route below Birchen Edge, on to Baslow Edge, with lunch at Chatsworth House before finishing – still in autumn sunshine. What a difference a day makes !
