Last weekend my map reading skills took a knock, as I added 2 miles onto a walk by mistake, however, it was a fantastic walk and number 45 in the book

Started at Curber Gap car park, headed south along Baslow edge, some cracking views from there, then past Wellingtons monument and down to the crossroads on Sheffield Road, back up to Birchen edge, past Nelsons monument and down to the main Chesterfield to Chatsworth road, and a pint of Boon Doggle and an egg sarnie at the Robin Hood. From there, back up to the south side of Gardom's edge, watched a sparrowhawk chasing a small heathland bird (possibly a twite) for a few minutes, then crossed the A621 again, then back past Wellingtons monument, past the Eagle Stone and back to Curber Gap and an ice cream in the car park to finish!

8 miles in all, great walking weather and fantastic views!

An egg sandwich on a walk? Shock

I can only assume you were having a solo day out. Content

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

I've rather neglected this thread. Here's a few of my wildlife pics from my recent walks.

We both had egg sarnies Fred, and they worked pretty quickly, but of course, I was using walkers etiquette Blush

Its that time of year again!
I have done 2 decent walks in the last few weeks, and only have 3 left to do to complete the book of 52 walks!

first out was Rushup Edge. We started in Edale near Barber Booth and walked into Edale, back out past the station and up the hill around 300 metres to the back of Mam Tor and along Rushup Edge, stopped for a sarnie or 2 and watched Curlews and swallows. Then further along the ridge to a crossroads in the track, then back down to Barber booth. A great walk around 6 1/2 miles.

Then Easter weekend, we did Wentworth and Elsecar (Terry's old stomping ground!), starting at the Heritage Centre we walked through Kings Wood and across fields to Wentworth, a beautiful village, and then past Wentworth Woodhouse. It was packed as it was the last day of it being open to the public. Past the grand old house and down to the Roman Ridge, across a few fields to the back of Rockingham's Mausoleum, into Nether Haugh then back along Cortworth Lane and up to Hoober, past Hoober Stand seeing squirrels, more Curlew and a bullfinch, then onto Street. Both gates at the end of that lane had been smashed down by a large (probably stolen) vehicle, very recently! From Street, we crossed the road and went past Needle's Eye and down the hill back to the Heritage Centre, where I went into the World of Beer and made a few purchases!! I have never seen so many follies in the same place as around Wentworth!

8 miles and no rain with a great ending in the Heritage Centre and half an hour in the beer shop!!

Good stuff, walking season is back!!

We walked through Wentworth Woodhouse in Jan or Feb and saw them filming an episode of 'Victoria' with the lovely Gema Coleman. Here's three telephoto shots of proceedings. I'll bet Queen Vic never showed her knickers!

A couple of weeks ago we did walks no. 50 and 51 around Eyam.
On the Sunday went from Eyam village up Eyam Edge and along Bretton Clough up to Stoke Ford. Then across to Tor Farm and Hazelford, turned right on the road and down the other side of Eyam Moor, across Sir William Hill and down to Mompessons Well, then back into Eyam from the East.

Stayed overnight at the Miners Arms, had a fantastic toad in the hole, had a walk around the village, taking in all of the plaques informing you of the people that died in certain houses and where the dead were buried! It must have been horrific to be in Eyam during the plague! We went back to the pub, a quick shower and down to the bar, entered the quiz that night and drank copious amounts of real ale Ruddles, and a particularly good IPA from Greene King, Olde Trip.

The Monday after a hearty breakfast we went in the opposite direction, it rained just about all the way, we were a week too early :-( We went down Lydgate and along the footpath to Stoney Middleton, past the "Roman Baths" and up to Knouchley Farm then joined the west bank of the river Derwent. Walked down to Calver, over the bridge and then north up the opposite bank. Lots of wild garlic on the banks and Mandarin Ducks in the river! We crossed the river at Froggatt bridge and headed up the lane, over the main road and up to the woods and Riley Graves, had a quick look there then walked back into Eyam for a cup of tea and a rocky road at the tea rooms!

Around 16 miles all in and a great couple of days.

Only one left to do in the book, up Kinder Scout in 2 weeks time!
