Denton, Woolsthorpe and Grantham Canal, 16th August 2017

Maggie led fourteen of us on this 8-mile walk from Denton, first along the old ironstone railway (disused!) to Woolsthorpe and back, via the Dirty Duck, along the canal to Denton Wharf and round Denton Reservoir.  Then an extra new section to view Denton's magnificent ironstone Church of St Andrew.
