Next walk: Church Stretton, 11 June 2017

On our next walk,  we will be returning to Church Stretton in Shropshire.

Church Stretton is a most attractive town situated in the Southern Shropshire hills designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. We will be doing a circular walk heading towards Little Caradoc which is the very smallest of the hills in the area. The walk is 6 miles. There is a fairly steep climb of around 15 to 20 minutes as we go up the hill but the rest of the walk is very easy going. Regarding the climb please don’t be put off; it is very do-able for someone of even average fitness and we will go at the pace of the slowest walker; it won’t be route march!

There are a few stiles and sheep on the hills but well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome. Expect mud and wear suitable clothing.

Afterwards we will be going to a most delightful café with home-made cakes and lots of other goodies!

Note: There are free toilets on site for the start and end of the walk.  

Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Meet for shared lifts at the usual place or contact us for details on how to go directly to the start of the walk.

Next Walk: Codsall (14 May)

May’s walk will be from the lovely village of Codsall near Wolverhampton.
It is a reasonably flat and easy 6-7 mile circular walk, through fields and woodlands with some road walking. There are several stiles and maybe some areas that are quite muddy, so appropriate footwear will be needed. We may also encounter some livestock. The walk will take us past the impressive Georgian country house Chillington Hall.
There is a fantastic coffee shop just a couple of minutes from the car park for post walk refreshments (and loos!)
Unfortunately, there are no toilets at the start of the walk.
Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Heavenly Hints walk, 9 April 2017

Join us in April for our “Heavenly Hints” walk, which will take us through gently undulating wooded farmland with beautiful views. Hints is fascinating Watling Street Roman Road territory with place names like “the Devil’s Dressing Room” and “Gold’s Clump”!!

The walk will be 6 moderate/easy miles. There are no loos at start/finish but we will debrief at the nearest pub after!! Dogs will need to be on leads for this walk as it crosses through fields with livestock. The terrain is likely to be muddy.

We look forward to seeing you there! It will be a great walk, with great scenery and views, a great chinwag and great women!!

Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Hatton Wilderness Way Walk, 12 March 2017

Our March walk will lead us from Hatton Country World through the Warwickshire countryside and along the Grand Union Canal, taking in the Hatton Locks.

The walk has a few stiles and is a generally flat 4 ¼ mile walk. When we trialled the route in January, we walked through a field with a very small and disinterested herd of cows! So this walk may not be suitable for dogs. The fields will be muddy so wear appropriate footwear.

There are toilets, a café, a garden centre and several shops at the start and the end of the walk.

Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Meet for shared lifts at the usual place or contact us for details on how to go directly to the start of the walk.
