It's just hours to our next event - the Churnet Valley Ramble

This event has been cancelled because of the risks posed by coronavirus""

There are options to suit all preferences.

Option 1 : Walk from Froghall (starting 11:00 a.m.) to the Black Lion Inn at Consall (arrive approx. 12 noon). Have lunch at the pub, then take the train from Consall station back to Froghall. This leaves Consall at 14:31 and gets you back to Froghall at 14:38. This will be the most popular option with most participants.

Option 2 : As above but instead of taking the train back to Froghall after lunch, walk back by the same route.

Option 3 : For those who would like to do more of this delightful canal-side walk, why not walk on to Cheddleton (about 1 hour) after lunching at the Black Lion, and catch the 15:50 train from Cheddleton back to Froghall (arrive 16:08).

Option 4 : For those members with elderly or infirm dogs who would find the walking a bit too far but would still like to sample this most social of events, why not take the train both ways to and from Consall? The train leaves Froghall at 11:00 and arrives at Consall at 11:11. It is less than a ten minute stroll from the station to the Black Lion but why not visit the canal moorings and old kilns at Consall before arriving at the pub or walk back the short distance to Consall Forge lock? Meet up with the other walkers and have lunch, then take the train back from Consall to Froghall at 14:31.
