Pit Lane , Pleasley., Derbyshire
A new walk for me recommended by an ex miner. The walk is about 5-6 miles long and is around a country park built on the old mine site. The place is easy to find and is just a little North West of Mansfield . The regular Pronto bus ( from the Vic Centre ) will take you to the start point in around 65 mins or there is a free car park at the site. As this is a winter walk you should wear boots and consider waterproofs depending on the weather.
The park is well know for it's commitment to local wild life and birds.
There is a cafe on site where we can go for a drink and warm up afterwards.
I expect to get us back to Nottingham around 2-3pm and will be more than happy to go for a drink or food if people are willing.
This event will go ahead regardless of the weather on the day.
The walk will head off at 10am so please make sure you are on or ahead of time.
