Scrumping in Handsworth

09 Sep 2023 09:45 - 15:00

From Handsworth we cross Orgreave Common and the Nature Reserves of Woodland Washlands, Shire Brook, Linley Bank Meadows and Shire Brook Valley, returning to the start through a long abandoned orchard, hopefully dripping with apples ripe for the picking.


Free - but places are limited and must be booked.
