Route Map

 

Something tells me this is going to be a little different to my normal walks.

 

Breadsall Moor I assume that before the golf course was extended across the road
 this looked a little more like a moor than it currently does.

 

Drum Hill

I am actually heading down Drum Hill at the moment!

 

Centenary Way

I leave the Centenary Way to head through Horsley Carr.

 

Morleymoor Farm

Yes it's s field, but its a very significant field, because it's where I got the phone call to say my daughter had passed
 her math's GCSE on her fourth attempt. So it definitely deserves a place on my website.

 

Morleymoor

I didn't know we had places this flat in Derbyshire.
