Sat 3 Mar Churnet Valley Guided History Walk

Details

Mel Brown from RSPB Coombes and Churnet Valley says: “This is an exciting opportunity to discover more about the Churnet Valley reserve and Bellpit Meadows. The natural and industrial heritage surrounding the Churnet is fascinating, and I can’t think of a better way to absorb the local history than on a good walk!”
The walk will be steep in places and may be muddy, so appropriate footwear is essential. All walks start at 1pm and finish around 4pm. Walks start from Consall Nature Park, ST9 0AF.
