Smisby WI Walks : Smisby Striders

Smisby Striders are the  Smisby WI walking group, which was set up in 2011.

 

Members take it in turns to organise and lead the walks on the 2nd Thursday of each month., Each walk is on average about 4 miles in length and may range from 3 to 6 miles

 

The walk finishes with lunch!  Members can just join in for the walk or the lunch, if they don't want to do both activities.  Members are notified of each venue by email and are asked to reply if they are attending.

 

We meet at 10:15 am for a prompt 10.30 start.Snowdrops at Dimminsdale 2014

Well behaved dogs welcome on lead.

Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the time of year.

 

Walking Dates are circulated to members by email, normally a week before the walk.

13 July 2017 Dovedale circuit

 

Members and husbands met at Ilam Hall. The route started through Ilam village, and across fields behind the Izaak Walton, and crossed over the bridge rather then the famous stepping stones (to avoid a large school party) to follow the Dove upstream past Lover’s Leap, Tissington Spires, and Pickering Tor. Crossing and leaving the river we turned northwest along the enchanting Hall Dale towards Stanshope. Just short of Stanshope we walked south across hay fields to the  road with spectacular views of the rocky Bunster Hill returning through Ilam Village and back to the cafe and facilities at Ilam Hall.This pretty walk was just over six miles.
