    SUNSHINE!!! With a good number of members away climbing in Greece a sunny day was ordered to entice others out. 12 of us (zero dogs) duly convened at Linacre Reservoir for a walk which the advertised leader (Vanda) had delegated to her new husband🤣🤣.
    Setting off downhill, a plus, we meandered alongside the reservoirs, with an informative mini lecture included for free. After branching off through the woods we came through an area clearly ripe for developing a new golf course, various design solutions debated.
    After crossing via a mini stone bridge the only significant rise took us to a coffee stop, adjacent to a mini climbing wall, unused.
    By now, hardly anybody knew where we were in an unexplored piece of Derbyshire but we were on the designated route and eventually we emerged by Wigly Primary School. More downhill took us to our lunch spot, convenient felled trees providing effective seating whilst hiding from the landowner. Post lunch we visited Brampton Church, an interesting interior and a very unusual clock face which was the subject of a quiz. The answer and explanation was given by John M.
    Back via the dam wall to the cars, 6.00 miles as advertised and done by 2pm.
    Cheers
    Paul.
