Holmesfield and Totley Brook (22nd June 2017)

A great walk was had by 19 members and guests on Thursday 22nd June from Holmesfield. The weather was perfect. We walked from the Angel down to Woodthorpe Hall, over Totley Brook twice and then up to Fanshawe Gate Old Hall where we had a quick stop to cool and refresh under the trees. Then onwards and upwards over the Holmesfield road and round the fields of beautiful horses (which had not been there on our recce). Our proper drink stop was planned to be in a field with great views across the valley but the bulls heifers and calfs got there first ( not there Monday!) (( I think they were Ayrshire : Ed))
Down through Holmesfield’s Butlins and then up to another field……with cows (not there Monday) gradually making our way back to Holmesfield Village Hall car park for 9.15pm. A few of us quenched our thirsts in The Angel to round off a very enjoyable evening
