HASLAND: Church walking group visits highest point in county

Have your say

Eighteen members of the Hasland Church Walking Group set off on a dry but cloudy morning to visit Nottinghamshire’s highest point.

Leaving the Hardwick car park they walked very close to the motorway before branching off towards Stanley. They then crossed several fields before entering Silverhill Country Park. They climbed up to the Miner’s Statue which dominates the hilltop, where they enjoyed panoramic views all around in the sunshine.

They then followed paths to the Teversal Visitor Centre where they stopped to enjoy their lunch, before returning to Hardwick Park and Visitor Centre, where ice creams rounded off a very enjoyable walk.
