A repeat walk from the Market Place, Belper

Saturday 6 September 2014  --  2p.m. 3 miles

Led by

Amber Valley          Ramblers                                                                  bl1

 

"Amber Valley Borough Council" has adopted a plan that incorporates the building of houses on a large wedge of hillside between Mill Lane/Kilburn Road & Sanded Lane:

     This area is largely invisible from nearby roads but from a distance can be seen as a beautiful backdrop to Belper. There is  an extensive network of footpaths much used by local people. Wildlife is prolific. There is an area of mediaeval ridge & furrow that could conceivably be associated with Belper’s first settlement. Records suggest that the area is little changed since the fourteenth century. We feel that the implications of the plan have not been properly explained to the people of Belper.  

     Therefore, we are  inviting the public to join us at 1400 on a guided walk of 4.5km (3 miles)  around the Bullsmoor area starting from Belper Market Place. The information given  during the walk will be impartial.

Amber Valley Borough Council invites comments to reach them by 8.9.14 We will be advising the public on their right to make such comments to Amber Valley District Council”.


All welcome to join us to view the area.

Footpath maintenance update. July 15 2014

You will see further down on this page reference to the start of our programme of building steps into a very steep slope in Mugginton. I am pleased to report, that a very strong team worked to finish the project. We worked very hard and all came away exhausted, especially those of us who are no longer  used to working for a living. I hope if you ever come across these steps, whilst out walking, you will perhaps, pause and consider the effort expended by our group of volunteers.fp2
