Our walk around Shipley Park on Thursday, gave us some fine views of the Hill itself as well as the surrounding countryside.  Part of this landscape is a field which used to be farmland, but which has been taken over by the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.  The field is surrounded in part by a small portion of the old Nutbrook Canal, where the Great Reedmace was growing, which I mentioned the other day.
From this field, a short walk along Slack Lane takes us through Mapperley Wood and on to the reservoir.  Shipley Hill is in view along this stretch of our walk and looks good in the sunshine.
