Barnburgh Evening Walk

Posted 20/6/2019

Thirteen adults and one junior embarked on Dearne Valley Walking Group’s 4.58 mile Barnburgh Evening Walk on a lovely evening yesterday.

Starting from the Crown Inn at Barnburgh we followed Doncaster Road into Barnburgh, passing St Peter’s Church before making our way through the village to join the Trans Pennine Trail.

The Trail took us along Mill Lane and along the bank of the River Dearne as far as Denaby Ings Nature Reserve where we then took the pavement alongside Pastures Road to join Melton Mill Lane.

Here a convenient footpath enabled us to walk along the field edge away from the road as far as Grange Lane which we then followed past Barnburgh Grange, across Barnburgh Common and back to our start point for a post-walk drink at the Crown Inn, who we thank for their hospitality and for allowing us to use their car park.

The walk saw us welcome a new face in form of Wayne Cousins who we hope enjoyed his first walk with us and we congratulate Kasia & Jack Wolniewicz who both passed 100 miles walked with the group this season.
