Beautiful weather this morning, so we decided upon a longer walk around the lanes and byways of Shipley Park, Mapperley Village and Shipley Hill before returning home.  The paths are still a little 'moist' in places, but mostly drying out nicely allowing unhindered perambulation.  Firstly a walk around the grassy fields towards Head House Farm.
From there, it was onward to Mapperley and it's reservoir heading for Shipley Hill along the lane which once provided carriage access up to the grandeur of Shipley Hall and now makes a nice walk.
Further lanes run off at right-angles to this track, taking the walker around Mapperley Reservoir, but that's a walk for another day.
