Proposed walks for 2019
14th November 8 miles Chris & Penella Starting from the National Trust Car Park, grid ref: SK454640. NOTE: this is the car park by the ponds (conveniently close to the Hardwick Inn) not the hall itself.
The walk will be around the Hardwick estate and one NT card per car required for free parking. There are toilets in the car park. There will be some ascents involving 257m of ascent giving views to enjoy but could also be muddy in parts. As a guideline should take 4 - 4.5 hours including our usual 2 stops.
