Saturday 23rd June Derbyshire Walk Report.

16 walker met bright and early at the Corn Market ready for the trip to Derbyshire for a ten mile walk in the Peak District.

Their destination was Bakewell and soon after arriving Julie S was in seventh heaven as she came across a dog show with all sorts to be seen.

Their route took them onto Rowsley where they passed some calves being reared for veal.

Next stop was Beeley for lunch at the Devonshire Arms where the landlord had thoughtfully provided a supply of "Doggy Ale" which would be most welcome to any passing canines due to the temperatures. Unfortunately it was marked as 0% alcohol so of less value to dog owners.

Also at St Anne's Church at Beeley and example of the Peak District tradition of Well Dressing was on display this celebrating 100 years since the granting of the vote to women by way of honouring the sacrifice of Emily Davison who took the Suffragettes motto of "Deeds not Words" to extreme lengths by throwing herself in front of the King's horse during the 1913 Derby and later died of injuries sustained.

After passing Chatsworth House their route took them down the hill to Baslow where their minibus was waiting to return them safe and sound to Kettering after a very welcome ice cream.

 An outing like this requires an enormous effort and all credit is due to Steven T who organised every aspect of the trip including transport,route planning and leading  on the day. and giving members a truly memorable day in this beautiful part of the country.
Thanks are due to Roy's Minibuses who provided transport and driver.
Thanks are also due to Julie S who acted as back marker and also provided this report and photographs.

In the words of Old Mr. Grace "You've all done very well".
