Old Moor & Dearne Way Walks - July 8th & 9th

Posted 9/7/2020

It was a long time coming but DVWGs return to group walking has proved to be a resounding success.

In accordance with current guidance only small groups was possible and we were lucky enough to receive pre-bookings for two groups on Wednesday evening followed by a third group on Thursday too.

Meeting and concluding formalities at the Old Moor Tavern we set off along a path aside the River Dearne. This led onto a disused railway line which runs behind RSPB Old Moor.joining the TPT near Bolton Upon Dearne and then onto a very muddy, (as usual) Dearne Way back to Broomhill.

The rain certainly didn’t dampen spirits and everyone from Wednesday’s groups reported that they were pleased to resume.

Thursday brought more rain and just 5 in our third group as we commenced along the old railway line, we decided that the Dearne Way would be too muddy by now, therefore we turned right instead of left and joined the path around Manvers Lake and eventually joining the TPT again back to Broomhill and the end of our walk. 

The group were also in high spirits enjoying resuming group walks.

Thank you to the 15 people who walked over two nights for turning out in poor weather and helping us resume with a flourish. Further thanks go to everyone who worked in the background to make the restart of DVWG possible and continued to support us too.

Don’t forget to watch out for the places becoming available for next week’s Harley & Tankersley walk.

It is truly great to be back.
