Attempt #2 st September's walk which didn't happen due to injuries and 
horrid weather.

A nice easy one describing a rough square from Riber near Matlock, 
passing over Bilberry Knoll, East to Lea, North through Dethick until we 
turn West before Tansley to get back to Riber. Annoyingly I can't find a 
decent on-line version but this blog post gives a decent account of 
things http://www.countryimagesmagazine.co.uk/walks/walk-riber-dethick/

The only real rise is Bilberry Knoll so unlike the previous walk(s), 
sturdy boots shouldn't be a pre-requisite.

We have the choice of food & drink in Lea  about half way round 
(http://www.jugandglasslea.com/), detouring into Tansley 
(http://www.taverntansley.co.uk/) nearer the end of the walk or even 
somewhere more inviting afterwards. We stumbled into a cracking place 
near the Roches last time.

It's only around 50 mins from Notts to the start point. Given our 
stomping rate, with a 0900 depature from Notts I would expect us all to 
be home around 1400 or so. If folks want to push the whole thing back by 
an hour or so, totally happy to discuss that with all attendees.

Kit: Sturdy shoes, jacket in the even of rain etc.

The is no public transport beyond Matlock to Riber.
Parking might be a bit of a sod in Riber, so I suggest we go in as few 
vehicles as possible.

Please let me know off-list if you'd like to join and if you're a driver 
or need transport.
