Apologies if I've accidentally posted a shit load of holiday photo's on the NDWG's FB page! Have deleted them and moved to my personal page. Sorry! (FB interface is still crap - if anyone from FB HQ is reading this)
It looks like there's no long walk leader on tomorrow's Hardwick Hall walk, so everyone will be doing the short walk with me! The walk aims to start at an earlier time of 10.15 am from the free car park next to Bolsover Castle (postcode S44 6PR). See you tomorrow morning!
