Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Andrew Forbes.
This is a pretty wee walk, with woodland sections, open fields, valleys, views of Coombs reservoir and the pretty little village of Coombs. There are a couple of shortish climbs that will get your heart pumping but nothing too difficult.
There is a short section where we walk along the side of the A5004. There is no pavement so care MUST be taken here
We'll do the guided tour of Poole's Cavern in Buxton. The cost is £7 each for groups of 10 or more. The tour will last approximately 45 - 50 minutes then it's on towards the train station.
I'll aim for the 3.29pm train from Buxton but there is plenty to do in the town if we miss this one.
No toilets are available at the start point so use the facilities on the train. We will start at 10.45am to give any members from Meet up time to arrive
