Friday 17th May. Walk to Donisthorpe

Seven met at the conkers Waterside Court. The weather was wet so we stayed in our cars mostly. At 10 o'clock we decided to move to Moira fuurnace and have some drinks while we discussed what to do. At about 10.40 the rain stopped so we decided to walk to Donisthorpe and back. The weather stayed fine if overcast. We walked by the canal to the Woodlands Centre at Donisthorpe, it was interesting and we may start a walk from there later in the year. We returned to the car park via the old railway and left before we were fenced in by the preperations for the Canal Festival starting the next day.
