Another section of the Sandstone Trail completed today, which this was our third section completed which we completed a circular walk from my book - circular walks along the sandstone trail. This is purely down to the logistics of walking liner walks but also i get a lot of enjoyment of walking with a guide book following maps and instructions. For the 9km the ruins of Beeston castle hardly left out sight as if to keep a eye on us as we circumnavigate round the castle and a almost totally flat walk and of course stopping for a nice cold cider along the way which was very nice on the halfway mark.
