  2. Forgot to mention i will have room in the car.
  3. Hi Village Owl I would have loved to have done this walk but having injured my back I could not walk the distance, just taking the dog for a walk as been very difficult.
  4. Hi davidstorer my fathers name was Lewis Fowler, can't remember the engine drivers name but I think he used to live near Page Hall.
  5. My father worked there as a shunter on the works railway, he used to work such long hours 12 per weekday and 6 on a Sat + Sun.
  6. Hi all my father worked at lee's Wincobank for many years as a shunter on the works internal railway, and my uncle worked at Alloy Steel Rods, Lewis and Ernest Fowler.
  7. Should be along for this walk, just to add to the information about the Rockingham, it is one of the few pubs to have an actual bar most pubs have counters.
  8. Would have loved to come along on this walk it would bring back many memories, but the British GP as to take preference. I hope you all enjoy what should be a great day out.
  9. Sorry forgot to say anything or anybody.
  10. Hi all I will be along for this walk and will stay on after, but will not require any food. If you want anything taking out there scoobz just let me know as I will have room in the car.
  11. Hi all don't know if we are in Sheffield this coming weekend, but if we are I would love to come along on this walk. I recall the brilliant weather that we had last year and hope for the same next Sunday.
  12. Hi my broher-in-law was born in the huts on Tyler Street, Albert White.
  13. Hi I don't think there is a hotel in Tissington, the main attraction is the hall, or the ice cream van at the side of the pond, or maybe the well-dressing oppersite the hall.
  14. Hi all should be along on this walk and have room if anyone needs a lift. Canada girl, the walk can be found on the web but but it's a little awkward to locate, but if you do come along the last 4 miles is along the Tissington trail so if you are too tired to continue its an easy thing to wait around and I would come back and pick you up. It would be a pity to miss this walk as the scenery is great, even if you decide to just have a stroll around Tissington.
  15. Hope to make the meeting if we get back from Harrogate in time.
  16. Hi you walked up Foulstone Delf (Spelling?????) and onto Derwent Edge, if you had turned right you would have walked to Back Tor trig point and the Lost Lad sited below. If you had carried on walking from the trig point you may have finished up with more than a few problems due to the ground conditions. It's proberbly a good thing you turned left, but you can do a circular walk from Fairholmes car park or a linear walk from the Cut Throat Bridge.
  17. Hi cat going back to your story of the DYKE, was it your travels up the dyke to find the source, that caused you to slip and crack your ribs. If it was we will all have to hold you in the same esteem as Dr Livingston as you overcame injury to explore our dyke.
  18. Hi Mark Richards books are all very good, but take care on his estimated distances he knows how to describe a country mile. Enjoy
  19. Hi Alcoblog I contacted you, and do believe me the people in the group don't bite, but the only way to find this out is to give it a try. I do realize that it's harder to implement than it is for me to just type this out, but do give it a try.
  20. Hi Eclair just the mention of Rivelin as made me turn to drink, last Wednesday I went for a walk around there and had quite an exspensive accident. Because of pride I won't put all the facts on an open forum, but if anyone saw me I'm sure they are still laughing or they may have had an accident through the laughter.
  21. A very big thanks to Hippiechick for leading and the choice of the walk, both being excellent, and not forgetting Village Owl for doing a sterling job as back marker.
  22. Hi one book which I have used many times is called On High Lakeland Fells written by Bob Allen. Used in conjunction with an OS map I have found this to be an excellent guide as it covers most areas of the Lakes, and describes 84 walks of which 73 are round walks.
  23. No such thing as bad weather just wrong clothes, may come along on this walk after the GP on TV. Happy walking
