Unstone and Summerley (1st March 2016)

Tuesday 1st March, Barry Jex led a walk from the ‘long lay-by’.

He writes:    A group of 9 set off in the rain but it stopped after a few minutes and the weather turned out fine – just right for a stroll in the country. We began from the Unstone lay-by and followed the Unstone Way for the early part of the walk, then up the hill towards Hundall, turning back beyond Woodsmithies Farm into Unstone and then through a very muddy field to join the road past Summerley, Frith Wood and finally Metapic Wood. The whole trip of four and a half miles took us just over two hours! We were fortunate to have a “local” with us who was able to enlighten us with some historical notes as we passed points of interest.
Regards, Barry
