Sunday, 10th February 2019   BRASSINGTON FOUR CHURCHES WALK    9 miles  5 hrs   Grade 2
Start Time: 10:00am    Grid Ref: SK233547. The walk starts in Brassington at a disused quarry, now Wirksworth Dale free car park, nearest postcode DE4 4HA.
The route passes through the active mining village of Ballidon, onto pretty Parwich and then historical Bradbourne (resting place of stage and film actor Alan Bates), before looping back to Brassington, taking in the four churches and a couple of pubs along the way. Some inclines through fields and on country lanes, and mud at this time of year is quite probable! Lunch required.

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
