Holmesfield and Cartledge (8th November 2016)

Tuesday 8th November

Today’s Tuesday morning walk started at  Dronfield Woodhouse, where 24 of us enjoyed tea and toast at St Andrews Church before setting out on our walk of about 5 miles.

The weather was cold but bright as leader Barry Jex took us along Barnes Lane towards Bradway, where we turned back to Mickley and dropped down towards Woodthorpe and there enjoyed a  coffee break. We continued along the field path,before turning uphill along Hob lane, crunching the dry Autumn leaves as we went. At  Holmesfield Common we followed paths to Cartledge , with splendid views across the Cordwell Valley and well beyond. From Cartledge our route was through Kitchen Wood back to Dronfield.

An excellent Autumn walk, enjoyed by all
