Local history and sites of interest will be highlighted as we walk the footpaths and tracks with magnificent views along the way. Full details of the Walking Festival can be found at www.autumnfootprints.co.uk
As this walk is on a weekday some of you are not able to join us, so I would like to invite you to join us on the recce that I have to do prior to the walk in order to complete the risk assessment. I plan to do this on Saturday 12th August starting at 10.00am. As the Spotted Cow / Calf will be open, I am going to start the walk from there. It will be available to use the facilities and of course both pub and cafe will be open for food and drinks afterwards. Parking is available in the car park.
Hope that you can join us on one of these occasions.

Our Last Walk
Our last Village Walk was a circuit around Denby with 10 walkers; although we started with no dogs, we had a Newfoundland dog join us from one of the farms that we passed. It stayed with us for about 2 miles and refused to go home until we phoned the farmer to come and collect it! On the walk we visited the Flamstead Park in Denby which celebrates the life of John Flamstead, the first Astronomer Royal who was born in Denby.
