Poolsbrook country park (12th February 2019)

Tuesday 12th February: a Joe Kelsall FLAT walk from Hollingwood Hub to Poolsbrook Country Park.

He writes: This morning 31 of us set off from Hollingwood Hub to walk alongside the Chesterfield Canal to Staveley Basin in chilly but ideal walking conditions. We saw the progress made from the basin and the direction the Canal will take to connect with the Renishaw section. From here we picked up the Pennine Trail branching off to Poolsbrook Park for a coffee break after which 29 went the extra mile to walk around the lake. We retraced our steps until branching off by Staveley Church to pick up the Canal crossing the last footbridge before the Basin, and returning to the Hub. A good seven mile or so walk with plenty of bird life to enjoy.
