Walking Group

photoThis is a very friendly sociable group. We walk on the first Wednesday of the month and we use public transport.

The walks are between 5 and 7 miles using a different leader each month.  A packed lunch is required and a sitmat.

A brief description of the next walk, along with travel instructions, is given out in leaflet form on the walk and also appears on the website.

Walking boots or shoes are recommended together with a waterproof coat.
