Saturday’s weather looked good for walking as 14 members converged on the lovely village of Parwich at the southern end of the Peak District. We were welcomed by the landlady of the Sycamore Inn who took our lunch time food orders before we set off on our morning walk.
This took us south on the Limestone Way to reach the Tissington trail where we were joined by many other walkers and cyclists all enjoying the sunshine. We returned to Parwich by way of a secluded, shady valley and a pleasant stroll through the fields. Lunch and a refreshing drink were very welcome!
A smaller number set off after lunch for a shorter but quite testing walk in the heat of the afternoon. This finished with a rather unexpected steep downhill scramble into Parwich – after which we felt we had earned some more refreshment before returning home.
