After Dark 6 - January 8th

Posted 9/1/2016

Once again our annual after dark walk proved to be one of the more popular walks in DVWG's annual calendar with a total of 31 people, 26 adults and 5 children completing this years walk.


The walk started from The Travellers at Oxspring and walked to Vicar Wood negotiating Storrs Dike and then on some muddy tracks down to Silkstone Common. The return journey to Oxspring commenced via North Wood where it is fair to say there was a very difficult beck crossing to negotiate with a fallen tree obstructing a very steep and muddy path. The final part of the walk was a long hill climb from Silkstone Common back to Oxspring on the Trans Pennine Trail.


All in all an admirable effort from all who took part and our party were rewarded with the tasty hot food provided by The Travellers on our return.

Thanks to everyone who took part especially Nick Powell, Colin Clegg, Alison Hartley, Ian Starkey and Amanda Bennett who assisted with marshalling and organising this walk.

Finally a big hello to Fleur & Alex Holland, Jeanette & Joel Castelbranco, Gemma Mills, Keith & Janice Rolink, Ben Twist and Sabrina Teriney who walked with DVWG for the first time on this walk.
