Join Steve Dell for a new ramble around Calke the Park area for a 7 mile ramble exploring the Calke Tramway Trail
This 7 mile ramble is a little longer than usual but comes at the request of many members who want to walk a little bit further, the walk is fairly flat and will be at the usual relaxed pace will be the same though.
This new walk uses the Calke Tramway Trail; the route of the old horse-drawn tramway that linked Ticknall to Ashby and includes the pretty Dimminsdale Woods.
The walk starts at The Ferrers Centre as the parking is cheaper and you don’t have to book. We make our way to the Tramway Trail at the edge of Calke Park and follow it around for a couple of miles with some lovely views over the surrounding area.
We leave the trail and explore Calke Park where we can stop for a rest and maybe a cuppa. We continue to have a look at Calke Abbey and the back via Dimminsdale Woods.
