Linacre Woods - Sunday 30th October 2016

Post  Village Owl on Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:26 pm

Linacre Woods Sunday 30th October.

This is an interesting 8.5 mile walk in an unspoilt area which should take us roughly 4.5 hours to complete. The walk takes us from Linacre Woods, through the woods, to the lovely hamlet of Milthorpe from where we make our way back to the start via Oxton Rake. Expect grassy paths and tracks, bridleways, woodland and undulating hills on this fairly easy walk.

Meet at 10.00am for a 10.15am start at the lower of the 3 car parks at Linacre Reservoir. The car parks are signposted off the B6050 on the way out of Chesterfield through Cutthorpe. Theres no postcode for this walk but its easy enough to find providing you get the right road out of Chesterfield.

When you get there, keep going downhill until you reach the 3rd car park. Just look for a rabble!

10k race

Post  Steve M on Thu Oct 27, 2016 8:50 am

There's a 10k race in the city centre Sunday, which means that anyone coming from the north of the city will have to go round the route to get across the city, as many roads will be closed.

Here's a link to the route http://www.runforall.com/10k/sheffield/route/

To avoid the road closures I would head for Penistone Road and take Derek Dooley Way, Sheffield Parkway, and then the Ring Road past Midland Station to get round it. I think the roads are to be closed 8-12.

A lovely walk yesterday through the woods and surrounding area. It was nice to stretch the legs once again.

Thanks to Cherry and Steve for helping out at times leading, it wouldn't have been linacre woods if we didn't make a slight wrong turn at one point.

The views and autumnal colours especially in the woods were lovely, thanks to everyone for their usual great company, and welcome to the two new faces who joined us.
