The Short Walks Group

Leader is John Howlett phone 01530 461774

1st January. Around Ashby

8 walkers met on the Green on a perfect day for walking except the ground was icy and we had one faller but that came later. Two of the party were new to the group as we set off through the park as far as the new bridge where we crossed into the estate where the soap factory had been. We then crossed the Smisby road into the French homes estate and climbed up to the path to the flour mill but instead turned right to come to the Burton road opposite Hill street. We turned right along Burton road and thence into Churchill Close. We took the path from Churchill Close to Highfields and then up the Moira road to the footpath leading through the allotments and onto Wilfred Gardens where the fall occured. We then took the new path around Bath grounds anto Prior park road, South Street to the cafe replacing the forties themed cafe.
