Fauld Crater Walk(s)

From Chris G;-

"A choice of three circular walks, starting and finishing at a pub, nuff said :-)

http://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/environment/eLand/RightsofWay/PromotedRoutes/Hanbury-Walks.pdf
It is the site site of a massive explosion that took place when an ammunition dump blew up. My great aunt has lived in the area all her life and she remembers the day it happened. Heard some gruesome tales from her ! It is around 20 miles from Tamworth. No sniggering at the location !!!"

With a view to a bite to eat after for those who would like it!

    What a shame the weather wasn't like this last week

    A suggestion; we schedule this again for spring or summer, do the six mile green route to Tutbury, stop there for lunch or eat at the Cock Inn after the walk.

    Great laugh. Good company as always and fantastic food. Bit muddy though. Might have been better in July if it has dried out by then!

    For anyone that is planning on eating. The Cock Inn is closed on Sunday

      It's confusing. Some places it says closed on Sundays, but on whatpub, updated jan 14, it says serves food 12 - 7 on Sundays.

    Hi All, just to confirm meeting at the Cock Inn at 2pm, depending on the weather, depends on the walk, if the ground is wet under foot then will opt for the blue & red walks as the green walk can be very muddy, looking to stop at the cock inn for a bite to eat afterwards, a new one on me but recommended!! Please like this post to confirm you have read it and will be attending and post food by reply if you want a bite to eat!!

    Interesting story

    January 3, 2014

  • Isobel

    I would go for the green walk! - work up an appetite! - yes dogs allowed on all walks as long as kept under control.

    I've walked the four and a half miles walk around Hanbury and up to the Crater today :-) with Derby Sociables.
