Parkwood Springs

Description

This is a 4 mile walk and is easy/moderate. It will take approx 1.5 hours.

A steady climb up Rutland Road will bring us to Parkwood Springs, an amazing natural 'wild' space close to the centre of the city where there are spectacular views over the city centre, the suburbs and the distant moors of the Peak District.
We then head downhill to Wardsend Cemetery, a Victorian cemetery which is really a detached churchyard, it was opened on 21st June 1857 as the burial ground for St. Philip's Church on Infirmary Road (now demolished).
Following the River Don on our return to The Garderners Rest for a drink, where I believe they have a good variety of real beers and have a very quirky beer garden.

Start time: 7.00pm
