The leader will be at the meeting place whatever the weather and only cancel the walk in consultation with those who turn up on the day. All dogs must be kept under control at all times. Walking boots or strong shoes are recommended. Be prepared for bad weather by taking warm WATERPROOF clothing. Leaders act in a voluntary capacity. All ramblers walk at their own risk.

7th November. Ambergate

Five hardy walkers set out from the Hurt Arms Ambergate on this 7 mile walk. The walk took us up hill through Crich Chase and although dry at first, the rain soon came down and waterproofs were required by the time we had reached Chadwick Nick Lane. We then walked along the Tors ridge which normally provides great views to the North but alas on this occasion everthing was shrouded in mist. We walked through Crich village and past the Tramway museum stopping for a rest near the Sherwood Foresters monument. The walk then took us around the Cliff Quarry and down through a forested area where the rain came down even more fiercely. We eventually emerged onto the disused Cromford Canal. We then followed the tow path back along the canal to Ambergate and the welcome respite of the Hurt Arms
