Friday 27th December: Steve and Ros Sadler
For the last walk of 2019 we started from a Millthorpe – a change from previous years. The weather was dry and mild as 24 of us set off on a 4 mile walk mainly on footpaths via Unthank, Moorhall, Rumbling Street and back to Millthorpe. Conditions underfoot were very muddy in places but thankfully everyone managed to stay upright! A coffee stop at the halfway point refreshed us although the views towards Barlow and Chesterfield were a bit hazy and disappointing. Arriving back at Millthorpe the final task was cleaning our boots in the brook before returning to our cars. Lunch was then enjoyed by some at the Royal Oak followed by the traditional quiz by John Ellis. A great finish to an enjoyable walk despite the muddy bits!
