Misterton Walk - September 5th

Posted 5/9/2020

It was DVWGs first Saturday walk since March 7th today and our longest walk since re-start.

Starting from the Red Hart in Misterton we quickly picked up the Cuckoo Way aka Chesterfield Canal walking out of the village towards Gringley on the Hill before crossing the road and following a byway known locally as Tupcroft Road.

After turning back into the village we rejoined the canal towpath again at Wharf Bridge and followed this beautiful stretch of the canal until it flowed into the River Trent at West Stockwith.

After a quick drink & snack break alongside the Trent we walked through the village and picked up the path alongside the River Idle which took us right back to the outskirts of Misterton.

We returned into the village via the very busy Hazel Road.

Well done to the eleven people who completed this 7.9 miles route which is worth repeating, varying or extending.

A beer at the Red Hart in the sunny beer garden was reward for our efforts, although the pub carvery was tempting too.

Many thanks to the Red Hart who allowed us to use their car park too.
