Due to the appalling weather that occurred when this walk was originally scheduled for July it has now become the September walk.  Starting at 10.00am from Osmaston village hall car park (Grid Ref SK 199439, Post Code DE6 1LW), this is a 5 mile undulating walk through fields and woods. It goes around Osmaston estate village towards Shirley partly on the Centenary Way and returns via the Bonnie Prince Charlie way.  Osmaston is located by turning left off the A52 Derby/Ashbourne road, once in the village turn left and the village hall is on the right.  There will be one refreshment stop so don’t forget your flasks.  A donation of £1 is requested please which goes towards our village hall funds.  Hopefully this time the sun will shine!!
