17th November. Walk from Conkers to Spring Cottage and Moira Furnace10 of us met under overcast skies at Conkers car park. We set off through the tunnel and across the tracks down into the meadow before and along the track to the path between Donisthorpe and Spring Cottage. We took the Spring Cottage route to the road, turned left along the pavement to the path to Youth Hostel. At this point the Sun came out as we followed the track now going to Donisthorpe but only as far as the path to Moira Furnace where we had coffee. After a long stop we returned following the canal to Conkers and back to our cars. The walk was 3 1/3 miles.
