Range Walking Club
Sunday 4th April 1993-Derbyshire-Holmfirth
 
The next walk is on April 4th and takes us to a new area for the club, Holmfirth. None of the walks are particularly strenuous or high level and it is hoped therefore to allow time for 'Last of the Summer Wine' enthusiasts to explore the parts of Holmfirth that may appeal to them. In this respect leaflets providing a map and other information will be made available on the coach. We leave school as usual at 8.00 a.m. prompt, and expect to be back by 7.30 p.m. The cost of the coach is 4.00 for adults and 2.00 for children. There will be a short toilet stop at Birch Service Station on the M62 on the outward journey. Please return slip with cheque to Barbara Craine, school office by Thursday, 25th March 1993.

'C' Walk
A circular walk around Holmfirth starts from the swimming pool car park, after a sharp pull up towards Upper Thong we walk through the hamlets of Hogley Green and Cark Green to Digley Reservoir. Our return is via Hinchcliffe Mill and New Dunsley in time to visit Nora Batty's steps etc. Rather more ups and downs than usual for a 'C' walk but the views are quite rewarding.
