The Medium Walking Group

Co-ordinator:   Alison Thompson - mediumwalk@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 07930 557432

The leader will be at the meeting place whatever the weather and only cancel the walk in consultation with those who turn up on the day. All dogs must be kept under control at all times. Walking boots or strong shoes are recommended. Be prepared for bad weather by taking warm WATERPROOF clothing. Leaders act in a voluntary capacity. All ramblers walk at their own risk.

The walk leader is responsible for advising the webmaster of the start point of the walk, and afterwards sending him a walk report. The first aid box and list of emergency contacts will be passed on after each walk to the next leader or to Alison.

Monday 12th February. Moira Furnace, led by Alison

13 of us (including 2 visitors) set off a lovely bright morning. There was a definite feel of spring in the sir. Initially, the walk was along the old railway track to Spring Cottage and beyond to Swainspark Wood. There was a slight deviation from the planned route in the wood (which is a nice way of saying that the leader took a wrong turn!!) but we were soon back on track to Albert Village Lake, where our next piece of excitement took place. Two of our party, inadvertently, branched off on their own but were soon relocated and all arrived safely back at the car park via Conkers and the canal tow path. The walk lasted about 2.30 hrs and was a distance of about 6 - 6.5 miles.
