This month has been so bizarre! I thought I would be here talking about days out, home projects, and family history as per normal but instead I’m going to be writing about how the Coronavirus has been affecting our family this month.
Happy New Year! We love starting the new year with a family walk. We decided to leave the older kids home in the warm while we took Max and Sam to a nearby village, Oxspring. Ben wanted to walk from the park to the top of the hill. It wasn’t far and the views were beautiful but it was extremely cold.
The Trans Pennine Trail was once a railway, and is now a 207 mile path in the North of England that runs from Southport on the west coast, across the peaks, and all the way to Hornsea in the East. We have explored only about 20 miles of the trail so far, but today I only want to talk about our little section of the Upper Don Trail in Thurgoland.
We can’t seem to get enough of the Peak District recently. Living right near it gives us so many opportunities to explore, and we try and go somewhere new every time. Ben wanted to go to Agden Reservoir. We put it into our map and when we got there we found it difficult to find the start of the walk.
