Walk - Calke Park & Ticknall Tramway

Title Walk - Calke Park & Ticknall Tramway
Organiser IWA Lichfield Branch

Tuesday 10th May 2016 – Calke Park and the Ticknall Tramway Walk.  This is a pleasant 6 mile walk through a landscaped estate with 8 dog-friendly stiles.  Leaving the village pub car park we soon join the line of the Ticknall Tramway (built as an extension of the Ashby Canal) which we follow southwards for about a mile.  Turning left after a tunnel we head through parkland towards Calke Abbey.  Although we will not have time to visit the interior, we pass the front of the house and its church and proceed towards Staunto Harold reservoir.  Traversing its south-western borders we head slightly uphill at first in the direction of the limeyards.  We return to our starting point through a further tramway tunnel (mind your heads!).  There is then a chance of refreshment at the pub.  Meet 10:00 for a 10:15 start in the car park of The Staff Of Life country pub, 7 High Street, Ticknall, Derbyshire DE73 7JH.
