Winter Walks Winter Walks

Wrap up warm and put your best foot forward by taking part in Winter Wonderland Walks in South Derbyshire.

Rosliston Forestry Centre and Calke Abbey in Ticknall are perfect settings for absorbing picturesque and Instagram-worthy views.

As well as natural woodland surroundings, you can enjoy a mince pie and mulled wine at Rosliston Forestry Centre on Saturday, December 9.

The two mile walk costs £3.50 per person and starts at 2pm.

Then, to blow off the cobwebs after your Christmas indulgences, don’t miss the Twixmas Walk at Calke Abbey, a Grade I listed country house in Derbyshire, on Thursday, December 28.

Walkers wishing to feel the frost crunch under their feet in the stately home setting are not required to book in advance for this 11am start, one hour walk.

Cllr Bob Wheeler, Leader of South Derbyshire District Council, said:

“Our wintry walks are a great way to get fit, healthy and active whilst enjoying the peaceful and scenic surroundings of South Derbyshire.

“There is nothing more festive than being scarf-swaddled and rosy cheeked in crisp conditions.

“The walks, organised by Get Active in The Forest, offer the perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors and get into shape for the New Year.”
