Carsington Water Walk - 18th Feb

Posted 19/2/2018

A party of twelve for today's walk around Carsington Water in mild late winter conditions. Starting from the visitor centre we crossed the dam wall and followed the waterside path around the lake until we reached the main road at the north side of the lake.

From here there was some road walking into the village of Carsington, where there were some fantastic properties to see and some even nicer roadside Snowdrops which were in full bloom.

A pit stop at the lovely Miners Arms in Carsington for a quick beer, not a Mopane Worm in sight, (for anyone who remembers our mid-walk visit back in February 2011).

Following our pit stop the last couple of miles around Carsington Water was quite easily completed where we returned to the visitor centre at Carsington Water for a hot drink and cake before beginning our long journey home.

Well done to the twelve people who complete this 8.2 miles walk, especially Diana Walker who notched up 500 miles with DVWG today.
