Somersall to Lineacre Reservoirs (Circular) – Chesterfield - (Derbyshire) – 19/05/12 – 8.75 Miles – Helen (Molly)
So it’s Summer next week then is it ? Because for mid-May this barely counts as Spring. All of which left me making a quick change of jacket at the start of this walk, when it looked like a cloudburst was imminent. In the event it was a damp dull atmosphere of a day, but never actually chucked it down.

My first surprise of the day was how clogged up with traffic Sheffield was at a quarter to ten in the morning (although a broken down Stagecoach bus, may have had something to do with it). So another large 20+ group set off on a day where rain was promised, but except for one small interlude in the afternoon (see later photo) it never really materialised.

Robin Hood Stride (Circular) – (White Peak District) - (Derbyshire) – 07/05/12 – 7.23 Miles – Helen, Ally & Grant
Whilst our numbers were swelled for this bank holiday jaunt by young people Ally and Grant, we also had to leave behind Molly currently nursing a dodgy paw. Now as May day bank holiday weather goes this one was distinctly below average, with a sharp chill in the air and a constant mizzly threat of rain.
