Chesterfield Walking Festival May 2016
Chesterfield Walking Festival celebrated its tenth anniversary in May, with walkers from all over the country joining one (or more) of over fifty walks across Chesterfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire. Families with children got ‘Mucky Hands and Muddy Boots’ at Hardwick Hall while Limestone Journeys volunteers went ‘Exploring the Grips’ and enjoyed ‘A Grand Tour of the Crags and Welbeck’. ‘Tale of Two Loos’ offered a convenient celebration of two parishes that are committed to keeping their public toilets open.
