Spring Walks

 Spring Walk Sunday 13th May 2018.

On Sunday May 13th villagers and friends gathered in Milton Village Hall for a delicious full English breakfast before setting out on the Annual Village Walk in the Spring sunshine.

The walking group all set off in good spirits,  ages ranged from one villager yet to start school, some still at school, but for most school  a distant memory!  The group were guided across the well established footpaths towards Foremarke Church, then onwards to the Trent to explore the caves at Anchor Church.

The caves were a highlight for the younger members of the group,  and everyone delighted in the beautiful bluebells that lined the woodland paths.

Beyond the caves the group split,  with the more adventurous led by Helen, heading off via Ingleby and Knowle Hill Cottage, to take in the views at Seven Spouts . Meanwhile Neil took those with tired legs and Duck Derby tickets, back across the fields to the Foremarke School Estate and then onto Milton. A glorious adventure, in the sunshine and dappled shade, concluding with well earned refreshments in the beer garden at The Swan.

Thank you to the ladies who made a super breakfast, Edward for providing us with a pre-walk quiz, and to Helen and Neil who guided the walk.

Spring Walk 2015
Sunday May 17th was the date of the Annual Milton Spring Walk. Walkers met outside the Village Hall at 11am, on a fine but rather chilly morning.
A gentle walk, led by Edward, was followed by drinks in the Swan and Pork Baps and Trifle in the Village Hall. A short Nature quiz, devised by Edward , rounded off a very enjoyable event. Many thanks to the ladies who prepared the lunch for everyone, and to Edward for leading the Walk.

The Milton Spring walk and lunch  on Sunday 18th May was enjoyed by  25 walkers including four children. We left the village hall at 11 a.m. in glorious sunshine and took the road to Mount Pleasant and Ridgeway Farm. Following the footpaths and at a steady pace we walked through Sledge Wood then arrived back in Milton at 1 p.m. just in time for a pint at The Swan before a light  lunch in the Village Hall. Many thanks to our walking guide Helen.
