For those with magical mystery tour gadgets the nearest postcode is NE61 4JT. Please note if travelling in an easterly direction you’ll drive past your final destination and those travelling westerly will need to carry on until you reach the crossroads. All of this is dependent on the route your device suggests…
Yet again NT at Wallington is making us very welcome. Anyone attending the foray, regardless of whether they are NT members can use their facilities, refreshments, toilets etc. Please arrive promptly [no staying at Wallington ;-)], as we will have to make our way from the parking to Rothley Lakes. We have also kindly been allocated a ranger to introduce the site to us.
To the best of my knowledge the paths (if any) are fairly level with little in the way of incline.
