Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, two midland counties lying side by side, sharing the River Trent much industrial history in age of coal, but so very different.
Nottinghamshire, the place of caves and Sherwood Forest; of meadows and ducal seats; of Robin Hood and D H Lawrence.
Derbyshire, the home of the Peak and its Seven Wonders; rugged, harsh, beautiful, industrious.
Can there be a county boundary route for each county, or for both? That is the challenge proposed at the recent Blaby meeting, and so let the walkers of the two shires find a way.
Below is a map of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, on which we can develop boundary routes. As it progresses, we will let you know. In the meantime, would-be route devisers can use the map and the LDWA link below to start plotting a course. Let us know how you are getting an, and routes can be added to the map.
