Dronfield Hall Barn is excited to announce the re-launch of the Dronfield Rotary 2000 Walk – now known as the Dronfield Barn Rotary Walk.
Established at the start of the new century, the Dronfield Rotary Walk has proved to be very popular among both dedicated ramblers and casual walkers. However, in recent years, maintenance of the route has fallen by the wayside. Responsibility for keeping the walk as enjoyable for everyone is now that of Dronfield Heritage Trust, under the banner of ‘Walks at the Barn’.
Over the past few months, the Walks team has been hard at work repairing stiles and bridges along the route, plus general maintenance of the path including clearing overgrowth. Additionally, others have been working on publishing a new booklet about the walk to coincide with the re-launch.
The grand re-opening takes place at Coal Aston Village Hall on Saturday 12th May at 9:45am. We’re delighted that North East Derbyshire MP, Lee Rowley, will be on hand to help with proceedings. Members of the public are invited to do the walk in full, or, if the 14.5 miles proves too strenuous, in part. The new booklets will be on sale, priced at £3. They will also be on sale at the Barn, Steele’s, Dronfield Library and at Tapton Lock.
