5 Milers - February's Walk

Owen and Jenny led this walk round the Coleorton and Swannington area, and typical of the area the walk included quite a few gradients and stiles. Lunch afterwards was at the Angel Inn, Coleorton.

5 Milers - January's Walk

First walk of the year and the weather forecast looked good. We couldn't wait to get out there to walk off the Christmas pud. Unfortunately they got the forecast wrong and we got pretty wet! Never mind, we kept smiling and as it was still good to get out and do some exercise and swop festive activity stories with our fellow walkers.

Lots of water lying about but it did not affect the route we had planned. Even the ducks were worried about getting their feet wet! Nice lunch afterwards at Lakeside, but a shame we had to sit there in our soggy clothes.
