Sheffield - Autumn Walks
Join members of Cambridge Society Sheffield for a choice of two Autumn walks followed by lunch:
The longer walk is round Linacre reservoirs and through rolling farmland, with stiles and fields of sheep, horses or cattle. It will take 2½ to 3 hours and has some climbs and descents. This walk is approximately 5 miles in length.
Time: 9.45am for 10am start
Location: Meet Andrew Coomer at car park at the rear of The Gate Inn, Overgreen, Cutthorpe Chesterfield, S42 7BA (map ref: SK325733)
Alternatively choose the flatter shorter walk of about 1½ hours. The walk will be along the Chesterfield canal towpath and back. It is approximately 2.5 miles long on flat towpath.
Location: Meet Geoff Wilkinson at Tapton Lock Visitor Centre, Lockford Lane, Chesterfield S41 7JB (map ref: SK387730). The visitor centre is just off the A61 at the Tesco roundabout.
Those who do not wish to participate in a walk are very welcome to attend the lunch only.
