Radbourne Walk

Radbourne Walk

 

This is a circular walk starting and finishing at The Honeycomb Pub in Mickleover.  The first few hundred yards only are in the "City" but after that you are in the countryside. It is a very pleasant walk passing through farmland, woodland and through the village of Radbourne. There are stiles and footbridges on this walk.

The walk is 4 miles and should take approximately 2 hours,

Sturdy footwear, appropriate clothing for the weather and something to drink are advisable.  There are some small sections of the path that are close to water and can therefore get muddy. Please ensure you wear suitable footwear - pumps won't really do on this one :-)  

You can park on Sandown Avenue, which is next to the pub (see photo below) or outside the shops across the road. Please don't park in the pub car park without asking permission from the landlord. 

The Trentbarton bus "The Mickleover" stops outside the Pub. (The pub is about half way round the route, so it doesn't matter whether you catch the Blue or the Green route)

We will end up back at The Honeycomb, where we can enjoy a well earned shandy and for anyone who wants to stay on,  we can also have a bite to eat:

Please note: This event is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if wet.   

I will check the weather forecast on Friday evening and post an update

    Very good, Steve knew his stuff, some pleasant conversation in between the fun of sliding through the mud and a friendly horse.

    Although we are in for more heavy rain overnight, the forecast for tomorrow afternoon is dry .... and reasonably warm! In which case, we will carry on with the walk. Obviously, if the forecast turns out to be wrong and it's throwing it down when we get there, we may have to resort to "Plan B" :-) I will e-mail round everyone who is signed up with final details.

      We have had a lot of rain over the last week or so and we are getting even more tonight. Please be aware that the ground will be very wet and in some areas is it is likely to be quite muddy. Please ensure that you wear the appropriate footwear. You have been warned!!!

  • Derek

    Sounds great, subject to not tipping it down. See you all there.

    Sorry Steve, won't be able to attend now. Have secured a last minute booking for a course in Derby which lasts until 1700hr. I was looking forward to it as my ex father in law was the gamekeeper on Radbourne estate many years ago and I know the estate well.

    Not sure if I can make this Steve we have our big 'Hidden Peak Sportive' cycling event on Sunday and I may need to help set up and collect the van - I'll text you if I CAN come - since if at Ilam I will not have mobile service until I leave the village. Either way I will be in recruiters van!!!!!!

    I have deleted some of the comments on this event..... if one of them was yours, please don't take it personally!! As the date has now been changed and the comments mainly related to the original date, I thought that I would delete them. Anyone looking at the event now wouldn't necessarily know the event was originally scheduled for an earlier date, so it will hopefully avoid any confusion :-)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
