Dear all. Just to say that for those coming to my 11 mile Hardwick Hall walk next Sunday (27th) to bring trousers, instead of shorts, as there's a lot of overgrown paths on my route! The walk aims to start at an earlier time of 10.15 am from the free car park next to Bolsover Castle, on Castle Lane. I hope to see as many of you there as possible!
