The Walking Section has five walks a year in the south of England. Walks take place on Saturdays and are normally circular, starting from a railway station with a break for a pub lunch. The first and last walks of the year are often in London to avoid having to negotiate muddy tracks. London-based walks also offer flexibility to use public transport to break off along the route if necessary.
The Walking Section introduced a summer Walking Weekend in 2013. The first event was held in the Peak District and it proved to be very popular and enjoyable. These have been followed with weekends in Wiltshire and Hereford, Church Stretton, Shropshire and Yorkshire. This year’s weekend will be held in Dorset. For more details click on the links below:
All are welcome.
