Monday 13th May. Conkers to Oakthorpe led by Carole

9 members met at Conkers on Rawdon Road. We walked out of Conkers towards Spring Cottage, and then back into Conkers Woodland, walking the outside path to Donisthorpe. We then crossed the road, and walked along the old train line towards Oakthorpe. We had a coffee stop in Oakthorpe on a really long bench, longer than I have ever seen before. Through the village and past Oakthorpe lakes, to Donisthorpe church, then through the village to BMs. We then joined Donisthorpe Woodland, and followed the canal, past Moira Furnace, and back to our cars. A walk of 6.85 miles, a little longer than usual, but it was flat walking, and it was in beautiful sunshine.
