Matlock Walk and Fireworks - December 4th

Posted 10/12/2016

We had a dry and pleasant day for this walk, which started in the centre of Matlock and took in a hilly route around High Tor to Matlock Bath. From here we had a choice as to whether to continue or circuit or take a short cut back to Matlock.  Given the advancing time, there were concerns over daylight and in the end the group split up.  A handful of fitter walkers completed the advertised 7+ miles, whilst the rest continued on the shortened, 5-mile route.

We reconvened at the Christmas Market in Hall Leys Park, staying on for the impressive and lengthy firework display from Matlock Town football ground.  This festive caper was enjoyed by a party of 14 adults and two children.  We welcomed two new walkers in Matt Gough and Steve Batley to the group this afternoon. Thanks, as ever, to all attendees.
