The winter walking programme is now out in booklet form.
Many thanks to all walk organisers and leaders, and to Jill & Co. for putting it together.

If there are any changes due to bad weather or unforeseen events they will, wherever possible, be amended by Basil on the internet. They will also be tweeted on this page where we know of them.
Just need good winter weather now.

The Ramblers
Wednesday 21 August

An 11 mile walk on a fine day from Alfreton to Cromford for a group of 14, led by Pat.
A route via Pentrich, the site of some unpleasantness in 1817, then on to Crich past the
Memorial to the Sherwood Foresters, followed by a close view of a packed open air Blackpool tram on its way back to the Crich Tram Museum. Then finally down to the Cromford Canal.

A walk full of history and interest. Thanks to those who brought secateurs to ease the passage through the thorny bits.

The Ramblers
Tuesday 6 August

A canal theme for this walk as David took ten Ramblers on the train to Langley Mill for a route covering the Cromford, Nottingham, and Erewash canals.

The Great Northern Basin at Langley Mill was a hub where these canals converged when they were built in the late 18th century. A much quieter scene these days. Little boat activity beyond the Basin.
