Walking & Exploring the Landscape

Walking & Exploring the Landscape

Join us for a Walk in the local countryside. 

 

Starting at 3 miles, and depending on the fitness levels of the group, we walk and explore the countryside, noting points of interest such as animal evidence, tree identification, looking at dry stone walls, finding ponds to discover where nature is thriving, identify plants and animals and generally enjoy a day away from town.

Using Ordinance Survey maps, we follow a route, and become accustomed to basic map reading, so we don't get lost if our technology fails us with no signal.

Our current Walking activities are continuing throughout April till July join us at any time.  Please contact us to book a place on the minibus.
