The Great Long Walk from Nottingham Train Station to the Crown Inn (Beeston)
Heralded as the greatest walk of the century, the Great Long Walk to the Crown Inn is up there with all the other great treks such as: the ascent of K2, the summiting of the Andes, and fetching the paper from the newsagents on a Sunday morning. Starting from outside the front entrance to Nottingham train station at 2pm, we'll follow the canal path through the edge of urban jungle of the city centre, taking a moment to look in awe upon the looming architecture of the law courts, the canal house and other surrounding buildings. Having negotiated the perils of cyclists and local turnip sellers, we'll march on with zest of spirit and clarity of mind, as we enter the part of the journey that takes us near the Showcase cinema and that bowling alley place. With the wind to our backs, and the sun on our faces we'll trek on for nearly 3 miles more until we arrive at the homely atmosphere of the Crown Inn, where we can purchase foods such as sandwiches, pork pies, cheeseboards and of course ale/wine/soft drinks. The walk is nearly 5 miles in length so be sure to bring a bottle of water, a mule on which to carry excess baggage, and of course crampons. See you there! *The Crown Inn is located next to Beeston Interchange, where you can get trams and buses back into town.
