The Monthly run was going to be to Cadbury World, but the extreme weather prevented it from being trialed, we will visit this venue later in the year hopefully before the schools break up for their holidays.
The starting point is *Towsure on Holme Lane, S6 4JR, meeting at 10:00 (the car park opens shortly before) for a cuppa and buttie. Leaving at 10:30 our route is via Rivelin Valley Ladybower, Bamford, Hope Valley, Castleton, Winatts Pass, Sparrow Pit, Dove Holes, and onto Pooles Cavern in Buxton. Here a room has been reserved for us and tea and coffee will be served. We have been asked to use this room rather than take up dinnertime eating seats in the main café. Trips through the cavern takes about 45 minutes and set off every 20 minutes. A group rate has been negotiated.
After refreshments we will join the queue for the cavern tour at about 12:20, the tour takes about 45 minutes, after possibly another cuppa and definitely a ‘comfort stop’ we will leave at 1:30.
Our route to The Shalimar is via the A515 to Brierlow Bar (bookshop on corner),Glutton Bridge, Longnor, Hulme End, Hartington, (toilets available both but not a planned stop), Newhaven, Pike Hall, Longcliffe, Hopton (Not calling in to the hall), Godfreyhole, Wirksworth, Cromford, Matlock Bath, Matlock, and onto The Shalimar at Rowsley for our mid afternoon curry.
The return route is via Chatsworth Park or Matlock to Baslow where our run finishes, the route to this point is approximately 75 miles.
