Terrain – a scenic walk on footpaths running through wooded areas and crossing over rural farm land.  There will be some undulation, much meandering and lots of fresh air.

Walk Leader – Rob Williams

Who can attend – as this is the Christmas Special it is open to all Leaders and their family members.  Not suitable for younger children but if you can drag your older children away from the TV /X-Box then they are welcome to come along.  Dogs also welcome but for most to the walk they will need to be kept under firm control as we will pass over little open country.

Requirements – all the usual walking kit including waterproof coat and walking boots.  If you want to test your navigation skills then bring along your own map (OS Explorer 218) and compass. Finally don’t forget food and drink for the day; chance to finally have the last of that turkey and those mince pies.

Activate LogoAim of the walk – not just to walk off the Christmas excess and to try out your navigation skills. Rob will lead the walk taking in several good camp sites and points of interest in the area which could offer alternative programme if you decided to visit the area with your Cubs, Scouts or Explorers. As Rob was born and breed in this area he will provided a never ending commentary on local history, myths and various other lies (ear plugs will be provided if required).
