Historic walks in the Waveney and Blyth Valley and further afield. Our Walks combine historical places of interest with an easy walk, usually between 1 and 3 miles. Sorry but we are unable to accept dogs on our walks.
We have to limit numbers so that members can hear the walk leader as the walk progresses. If you wish to join Group 3 please use the bird link (to the right) to register your interest.
