Vacancies .. Please contact the group using the link on the right >>>
Date: 2nd Wednesday each month

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.

Walks for November and December are yet to be finalised. All walks take place on the second Wednesday of the month, between 2 - 4 pm, usually ending up at a nice place for refreshments.
Some churches request a small donation (not more than £5 per head) but otherwise no expense is required, apart from buying a cup of tea! Many walks are led by an expert guide or historian.
New members welcome, but only if you are a member of U3A, and on email. Notification of forthcoming walks is sent out approximately two weeks in advance, via email only
