12th March. From Moira Furnace to Gresley Woods and back

6 walkers met at Moira Furnace for a walk by the canal to Conkers, Albert village lake and on to Gresley Woods. They all wanted to walk so we set off in the rain at 10 o'clock. At Albert village lake it stopped raining and we discussed a coffee stop but the rain started again so the general feeling was lets get on with it. In Gresley woods we took a wrong turning and had to take a muddy route back to Spring Cottage. This was helped by one lorry driver going out of his way to avoid a large puddle which would have soaked us. At Spring Cottage we picked up the old railway track and arrived back at Moira Furnace at 12 o'clock soaking wet but with a sense of achievement although those that did not join us will not regret it.
