Overview

This is a train walk of 7 miles
Leaders: Paul and Dave J

We will be catching the train from Nottingham Railway Station and travelling to Tutbury & Hatton.

We will then walk to the Fauld Crater, the site of the largest non-nuclear explosion in history where we will walk around part of the crater.

Although now mostly overgrown there are still views of the crater which will give you an impression of how massive the explosion was.
