Ticknall to Hartshorne Linear Walk
A lovely morning to walk from Ticknall to Hartshorne via Carver Rocks. The path from Ticknall, Ashby Road to the A514 was squelchy but walkable as it was under grass not a crop. After autumn ploughing, this route can be very hard work. By Scaddows Cottage I found the old Royal Label Factory sign on the ground. It must have been around here for years. Beyond this point, a plank over a brook was rather tricky as the hand rail has collapsed.
The rest of the walk was quite straightforward except for some misaligned marker discs near Scaddows Farm and an unclear route near Hartshorne Wood.
A full route description will follow soon.
