Spring time walk event

THE Friends of the Cromford Canal will be staging a walk at the weekend.

The Springtime Woodland Wander takes place on Sunday, April 10, starting at the Derwent Hotel, in Whatstandwell, at 10.30am.

It is a circular guided walk of about five miles following part of the Derwent Valley Trail and the Cromford Canal.

A spokesman for the Friends said it was an opportunity to see some of the recent dredging work on the canal at Whatstandwell.

It costs £3.50 per adult and children go free with adult. For further information contact John Barker on 0786 0632837.
