The walk is mostly flat, but the paths in the woods are narrow and can be muddy. We will walk at a gentle pace and can adapt the route to suit the group. We will walk around 3 miles.

What to bring

We try not to be put off by the weather so please be prepared! Long sleeves and long trousers will help avoid stings, bites and scratches. Some paths can be muddy so sturdy shoes like walking boots or wellies are recommended.
