Barlborough Circular (15th June 20230

David led sixteen of us on a circular walk through the fields around Barlborough. The conditions were warm but slightly cooler than it had been earlier in the day. We initially walked through Barlborough village but were soon into open countryside. A feature of the walk was how flat it was but that did not detract from the lovely scenery. Unfortunately, I had an epic fail when it came to plotting the route on my phone so any real detail of the walk is sadly missing. At one point in the walk Graham pointed out that we were close to a house where the Beatles stopped when touring in their early years. Towards the end of the walk we passed Barlborough Hall School (formerly Barlborough Hall) which is an impressive looking building. After that we followed a quiet lane back into the village and on to our start point the De Rodes Arms pub/restaurant.

Thanks very much to David Scrivener for leading this very enjoyable 4.5 mile walk. It covered footpaths which many of us had never walked before.
