Findern / Mercia Marina Circular Walk

I know some members, who work at weekends, have asked about the possibility of events during the week, so how about a walk next Wednesday afternoon.  If you're not at work or maybe even if just fancy taking the afternoon off :-)

Let's join Findern Footpaths Group for a 3 mile (4.8 kilometre) walk visiting the wildlife sites managed by the group on behalf of Findern Parish Council.  The walk then joins the Trent and Mersey Canal towpath and follows it to Mercia Marina. The walk then returns to Findern either by road, or by retracing steps along the towpath. 

The terrain is easy for the most part, but may be uneven along the towpath and muddy after rain. 

Meet on Lower Green, Findern. Derby DE65 6AT at 1.15pm. Approx. finish time 4pm.

Dogs on leads welcome. 

Sturdy footwear, appropriate clothing for the weather and something to drink are advisable.

Nearby bus route The Villager (V3).

This is a free event.

      I'm guessing today must be one of those rare occasions when you have internet access :-)

    Thanks to everyone who came along. Thankfully it stopped raining in time for the start and even the sun came out in the end :-)

      The walk actually starts at 1.30pm so you should be ok. However I don't have the ability to delay it as it is being run by a local village group. They have publicised the bus route, so I assume they will wait for it to arrive, before setting off :-)

      You haven't actually signed up for this event, so you won't have received the e-mail that I sent round yesterday. I will send you a copy.

    Would have loved to have joined you. However, I am moving house in 6 weeks so I have to concentrate on the down sizing & packing.
