Overseal Health Walking Group
These Tuesday walks are organised by the Overseal Health Walking Group. This group is not part of the Smisby Striders. These walks are open to all and no charge is made. They are of a similar length to the Smisby Striders walks.
All the walks are classed as strenuous on the health walk scale. As normal = 1.30pm at the junction of Daisy Lane & Hallcroft Avenue, Overseal (close to the doctor's surgery) DE12 6JF. Please bring a snack & a drink on all walks in case we have an issue.

Please bring a snack & a drink on all walks in case we have an issue. You'll notice that the first 2 walks are linked to Hello Heritage. I thought this was the best way to ease my walking load over the 2 week celebration of S. Derbys heritage. Hope you don't mind. There is no charge for these walks.
