Linacre Reservoirs, 10th January 2016

This walk (8 miles and 400m climbing) was described by our leader  Sue as Edges and Ales but we were all (nine of us) too busy concentrating on keeping our feet to contemplate visiting the advertised real ale houses in the local villages.  The route explored the undulating countryside northwest of Chesterfield and the several river valleys which drain the moors on the eastern edge of the National Park.  Here are some images, some from Steve.
