After Dark 9 Walk - January 4th

Posted 5/1/2019

A total of 32 walkers took part in this years after dark walk which started and finished at The Station in Silkstone Common.

Starting from the pretty village of Silkstone Common we walked alongside Blacker Dam before crossing field footpaths onto Kine Moor. We descended into Kings Wood before a tricky crossing of Lindley Dike.

More field footpaths followed before an even trickier crossing of Storrs Dike, from here there was a steep climb on field paths to Far Coates at Oxspring before descending the Trans Pennine Trail coming through Stubbin Wood back to Silkstone Common.

Well done to everyone who walked especially Sophie Cusworth & Steve Pennock who both chalked up 100 miles season to date on this walk.

A big welcome goes out to new walkers Wesley Woolfall, Julie Bentley, Stephen Bentley and Ryan Smith.

The pie, peas & chips afterwards at The Station Inn were simply delicious and enjoyed by all.

Thanks to Nick Powell for the organisation of the pie & pea supper.
