On Sunday (11th January 2009) the members of the Sutton Rambling Club will be starting their 2009 programme of rambles with a 9.5/10 mile ramble in the very popular Monyash area of the White Peak. Please note there will be a shorter route option in mid-afternoon.

Chelmorton white peak ramble 2009The walk will commence on the outskirts of Chelmorton (grid ref 115703) the highest village in Derbyshire at 1200 feet above sea level. We initially head south along the Midshires Way and then branch off through the hamlet of Pomeroy, where we will probably have a coffee break. The morning concludes with a pleasant walk in open countryside in a south-easterly direction until we reach the very pretty village of Monyash for our lunch stop, where there is a choice of cafe or pub for refreshments.

In the afternoon we move northwards through the High Low area and then follow along the bottom of the steep-sided Deepdale. The afternoon section is completed with a stroll through Great Shacklow Wood and along the banks of the River Wye to finish at the village of Ashford-in-the-Water for a 4.30 pm coach trip home (grid ref 195695).

New members are made to feel most welcome. There is no requirement to pre-book your seat on the coach.

The McEwens coach leaves the "Staff of Life " pub on Hack Lane in Sutton-in-Ashfield at 9.15 am and the Bancroft Lane end, Stockwell Gate (near the Netto supermarket) in Mansfield at 9.30 am. There are other pick-up points available en route.
