Recovery Project - STAND TO: Veterans Winter Warmer Walk Update – 10 January 2024

Posted on: 15 Feb 2024

On Wednesday, 10th January 2024 our partners at STAND TO and their Veterans took to the hills and moors of Derbyshire to blow the Christmas cobwebs away, they started at Longshaw Hall (National Trust) which was used as a convalescent hospital during WW1, and then continued through the estate to Padley Gorge and beyond.  The conversations and banter flowed throughout as they cut through the fog to find shelter from the breeze in Lawrence Field Quarry, they then descended the gulley where once millstones were transported to the railway for use throughout the world.  With slightly sore knees for some, a well-earned brew and breakfast rolls were enjoyed at the legendary Grindleford Café, before the uphill Padley Gorge river walk taking them back to Longshaw – just under 10km was the distance.

Well done to all those Veterans who took part, see you next time for Black Rocks in February!
