Although we have not had many walks this year I am pleased to offer two walks for August and September.


Saturday 11th August - a circular walk via Milford, around the side of the Chevin ,returning through Duffield and over Duffield Bank. The walk will include a visit to Duffield Castle or rather the site of Duffield Castle. Starting from the Spotted Cow in Holbrook at 10.00am, approximately 5.5 miles. Prior to the walk the Spotted Calf Cafe will be open for refreshments, at the end both the Spotted Calf Cafe and the Spotted Cow Inn will be available for food and drinks.
