Carsington Water Walk

The Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust are organising a fundraising walk around the Carsington Water Reservoir. As Ellen MacArthur grew up in a small village called Whatsandwell, 20 minutes from Carsington, we thought it would be the perfect location to hold an event like this.
Event Date:
Sunday 8th May 2016
Event Time: 11am (Please arrive early for registration)
Route: An 8.5 miles route along the stunning views of the reservoir and surrounding countryside. There is also a shorter 1 mile route that is suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs and younger children.
Entry Fee: £5 for adults and £2 for children. Each participant will receive a free t-shirt to wear on the day and to keep as a souvenir.
Tickets can be purchased on our website: http://shop.ellenmacarthurcancertrust.org/events.html


Alteration to Walks programme.

Sunday 15 May 2016

The walk will now start from Alport Height.

10 a.m. 10 miles

This is because of a grand event taking place in Chatswoth Park over this week-end.


Footpath Maintenance

Tuesday 19 April

Our new man from Derbyshire County Council Richard Thomas was with us today for the first time, together with Steve Cresswell who now is to take a more supervisory role in Community Engagement with groups like ours.

The two stiles worked on this session were replaced by gates. The work involved clearing overgrown hedging before we could start then replacing an old stile with a new gate whilst across the field another stile had disintegrated completely and again holes were dug and posts put in and a new gate installed. The new chain arrangement can be seen which replaces the old hooks which seldom aligned securely.
