Caught bus to Litchfield then Burton onto Derby. Home at last !!!.Five Buses today.But well worth it ,then again i do have a Bus Pass.

1st of six for the day. Parked at church. Access local.live using the link above and zoom in so that 1:25000 map is shown. It will show the paths and fences that should be followed - Staffordshire Way is part of the route. Go to the gate in the N boundary wall of the churchyard, Turn R and follow wall, then R diagonally across field to gate in hedge. Use the gates and stiles. More cows and fresh pats!
