Good Friday Walk

Update 17.04.14.  I'll be waiting in Millfields car park from about 09:45 tomorrow.  I suggest we gather by the toilet block.

It looks as though we'll be seeing plenty of sunshine but it'll still be quite cool so please make sure you've got enough warm layers.

Remember: sensible footwear (it may be muddy) and don't forget your pack-up and a drink for lunch.

For those who wish to, I suggest we gather at the Hanging Gate at Shottle for a drink afterwards.

See you all tomorrow :-)


A walk around the reservoir.  It's about 8 miles and reasonably easy terrain.  Nevertheless, please come equipped with suitable footwear, a waterproof, and a packed lunch, including a drink.


After the walk, we can find a nice pub for a well earned drink.

PLEASE NOTE that the post code I've entered is for the visitor centre because it's the only one I could find - and the system said I had to enter something!  Please meet at Millfields car park at the south end - it's cheaper - £2.50 for the day.

I expect the walk will take us about 5 hours depending on pace and rest stops.

More information will follow nearer the time.

    Just had a lovely long long soak in my big bath with scented candles and glass of red. Lovely end to a lovely day really.

    Hi. My plans have all changed again and I now find myself fancy free on Good Friday so a nice long walk will be lovely - unless the snow comes! I will be traveling from Bakewell via Monyash so if anyone is on my route and wants a lift, shout out.

  • Colin

    Lift available from Kilburn and Belper areas. Will use the car, not the motorbike, so up to 3.5 passengers. I can park for free as I work for STW.
