Walk Reports

Saturday 22nd January, Great Missenden Circular

Good day out with a leisurely lunch at the Cock and Rabbit, The Lee - 3 in our group.

Saturday 26th February, Halesworth Circular

A good day with lunch at the Star Inn, Wenhaston having previously stopped by the church to check out the Doom. With summertime approaching then a longer 18 mile walk via Walberswick should make for an excellent days outing. Sunny with a gentle breeze - 2 in our group.

Saturday 19th March, Folkestone Circular

An exceptionally warm and sunny day for his time of year. Quiet wander through tranquil woodland at cliff base before taking a zigzag path to a peaceful clifftop spot for lunch, before our return clifftop walk back into Folkestone - 2 in our group.

Saunday 1st May, Wendover Circular

4 of us; we opted for the Cross Coppice shortcut. Lunch at the excellent community owned Russell Arms, Butlers Cross. Discussed revamped website, suggestion to add a Health and Wellbeing section.
