Tuesday 4th December. From Wilson around Calke led by Steve Jennings & Mike Stow

"Cloudia Outlook" our weather fairy mascot, certainly did us proud last Tuesday! Our party of 26, the biggest number we have ever achieved, included several new walkers, who we were very pleased to welcome. The group set off from the Bull's Head, Wilson in cool sunshine, which stayed with us for a most morning. Our route was roughly circumnavigating Staunton Harold reservoir visiting Melbourne, Calke Park (with a stop for coffee at the house), Dimminsdale and Spring Wood then passing Scotland farm and joining the top end of Park Pale - the green lane leading back to Wilson. Our nearly 8 mile walk was achieved in good time for us to be in The Bulls Head by 1:45 where we enjoyed, as usual, excellent fare, good company and quality ale.
