Is it for me?
A gentle walk on well marked paths, through woodland and across open grassland. Some lovely views across the local countryside on clear days. Easy underfoot, with some muddy patches when wet. The route is mainly flat, with some small undulations, and two stiles to cross on the journey.
If you are new to country walking, or just a little apprehensive, there is no need to worry. Andy will ensure that the pace and the route makes for an enjoyable walk.
We can chat about some of the history of the area, as well as learning about the wildlife we come across. Or if you simply want to take in the view, then that’s fine too.
