Not a pub crawl (19th November 2016)

Not a Pub Crawl, Saturday 19th November

21 intrepid walkers set out from ‘the big layby’ on a beautifully sunny day. Up through the woods and fields to Summerley, along by the Apperknowle International Airport, crossing the Eckington road, and through more woods to near The Gate at Troway, where some walkers tried out the new cafe at Troway Hall Farm, the rest of us caught our breath in a nearby field. We set off again, as the Gate was yet to open, and headed off through the fields, over a couple of electric fences…. naughty landowner…. and headed back up to the Eckington road again. ignoring the Brook at Troway, we headed off along the byway to regroup at the Travellers, Apperknowle. an excellent pint there, some of the group made their excuses, and headed back to their cars. Having gathered a new walker, Ruth’s daughter, a smaller group headed off to the Miners at Hundall for another pint and sit down. we then headed off, very refreshed, some to go back to the big layby, I went through the woods home to Unstone. So nice also, to have five new members with us….. but please note,  not all our walks are pub crawls!
