The Great Trek from Trent Bridge to Holme Pierrepoint

This walk from Trent bridge (the bridge itself, not the cricket ground) to Holme Pierrepoint is roughly 6 miles in total, and runs parallel to the River Trent - the greatest river in the Midlands!

We'll leave at 1045 from outside the River Bank bar (next to the bridge), and then head down the embankment toward Wilford Toll Bridge, then walk up the otherside of the Trent, past the City ground, and to the rowing lake at Holme Pierre Point.

The walk itself should take about 2 hours in total, and  will go ahead even if it rains, so be sure to bring a jacket/umbrella/manbrella!

See you at the River Bank bar!

    Hi all. The walk is still on for tomorrow, however we won't be going up to Holmepierre point. This is due to the fact that part of the Robin Hood Marathon goes along the route we were going to take!

    Instead we'll be doing the loop from the River Bank bar, down the Victoria Embankment, over the Wilford Toll Bridge, and back up the West Bridgford side of the Trent to River Bank bar again!

    I'd love to come but I think I'll pass this time. I'm anticipating an insane week at work next week, so better save energy!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
