    Had a wonderful walk around Ticknall village and then through Calke Abbey. The walk took us past the house and church then on to the lane to the round view point. It brought me happy memories of fishing with my late father in Big Dog Kennel Pond with its island showing due to the low water in the reservoir as the pond is now part of the reservoir.
