Thursday nights also have different meeting places depending on the time of year. In the summer we meet at Woodthorpe Park by the big house. The park is closed in the evenings during the winter months so we meet in the free public car park next to The Vale pub, accessed from Thackeray’s Lane. As we are currently running the summer routes these are the only ones shown here for now.

Woodthorpe Park

Spring Lane out & back

A simple out and back route: Starting at the big house in Woodthorpe Park, head out through the car park, turning right on to Woodthorpe Drive.

At the end of the road, make a left on to Plains Road and follow that all the way to Spring Lane.

Then simply turn back and retrace your steps back to Woodthorpe Park.

As always – take care when crossing roads.
