For our Easter Day walk we parked at Great Hucklow and ate our picnics on benches in this small, quiet village. The nearby grass verge being populated by many mole hills sparked a conversation on how to destroy moles and why would anyone want to. Under blue, sunny skies we walked the pavements and grassy tracks towards Foolow and the village duck pond, before discarding our jackets as the weather turned so warm. We stopped in a field to enjoy the wonderful summer weather, to share a variety of mini Easter eggs and to delight in the spectacle of lazy lambs, snoozing in the warm grass. From time to time a lone glider passed just above our heads and further into our walk, Trish was pleased to see her first swallow of the year. Many thanks to Bob, our leader, for a pleasant, peaceful, easy walk with only three stiles and enjoyed even more by the glorious, summer sunshine.
The next walk on Sunday 3rd May will be of 5 miles and led by Trish Law over Eyam Moor from Sir William Hill. We are a small, friendly group and welcome any newcomers. Please meet at the church gates at 12noon with a packed lunch. Transport will be arranged before riding to our starting point. We are usually back at church by 4pm.
