On 28 July 2021 the PNFS held a memorial walk to commemorate late chairman, David Hurrell. This was a circular walk starting and finishing at Grindleford railway station, taking in the spectacular Padley Gorge before heading up into the Longshaw Estate, then traversing the gritstone edges of Froggat and Curbar, and lastly to the Maynard Arms in Grindleford where we toasted David’s memory and his contribution to the Society. This walk was led by David’s son, Andrew and Dianne Fortesque, a friend of David, and a video of it can be seen at The top and middle photographs were taken on the walk. The bottom one shows David Hurrell on the PNFS Hathersage circular walk on 10 July 2019.
