Walking group 2 has been in existence since the beginning of Beccles U3A. Our walks range from 5.5 to 7.5 miles. The walks take place on the first Thursday of each month, we meet at the large car park at Beccles Quay at 9.15a.m to organise lifts and car sharing (so no need to worry if you don’t drive) leaving promptly at 9.30a.m.

It is of course well known that walking is one of the best ways to keep fit, but it’s something you can also do at a leisurely pace.

Following the footpaths, bridleways, quiet lanes and field edge paths takes you places and gives you views that you would not normally have access to, it’s also a way to meet new people, socialise and make new friends, and it gets you away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Our walks are all within a 25 mile radius of Beccles, so come along and join us we are a friendly bunch and you will be made most welcome.

Ivan

There are three walking groups:

Walking 1 meets on the second Tuesday (convenor Peter Westmacott) and walks 5 – 6 miles;
Walking 2 meets on the first Thursday (convenor Ivan Crane) and walks 5.5 – 7.5 miles;
Walking 3 meets on the third Thursday (convenor Julia Deary) and walks 3 – 5 miles.

We have set a maximum 15 members per walk, so the group sizes are manageable. Whilst it is important that you stay with your original walking group you can, of course, also join the other group walks if you wish. Please let the appropriate group convenor know should you wish to do this.

We have a very limited number of places available for new walkers to join our group. Please contact Convenor, Ivan using the Bird to the right of this page.

A list of walks for 2019 for Walking Group 2 can be seen to the right of this page.

The first walk of the year was in and around Southwold finishing at the Harbour Inn.
