Other Local Walk Information:
The next Village Walk is on: Saturday 1st July 2017
Start – Denby Pottery Cafe (DE5 8NX)
Start time - 10:00am
We are planning a walk on Saturday 1st July with a gentle ramble near home - a circuit around the historic village of Denby starting from Denby Pottery DE5 8NX, situated some 3 miles north of Little Eaton on the B6179 for the non locals. Lots of local history including sites related to the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed.
Meet outside the Denby Pottery Cafe at 10.00am for a 5 mile walk through fields and woods on country lanes and paths. The Cafe is situated at the far end of the site from the car park after the shops.
Hope you can join us

Our Last Walk
Our last walk on 13th May was enjoyed by 13 people and 2 dogs: we started the walk with a steady climb up Sheep Pasture Incline from the High Peak Junction to Black Rocks, down through the jitties of Cromford village and returned via the canal. On the way through Cromford we had a look at the Bear Pit, a unique example of Arkwright's water supply engineering. See photo!
