Walks are normally held monthly from March to October and all members are welcome

Walks take place on Saturdays (usually the fourth Saturday of the month unless otherwise advised) and are of about 5-7 miles length at a moderate pace, lasting 2-3 hours. Normally, we meet at 9.30 am in the Manor Road Park car park for car share/lifts, or at the advised starting point for a 10.00 am start. Walk leaders are shown in brackets in the list of walks. Lunch is usually arranged for after or during the walk. Final details of walks are sent by email to walkers on the Group Leader's contact list within a week of the walk date. Information includes grade, ground conditions, meeting places etc.

For shorter, easier, walks, see page for Walking B; these take place on Monday afternoons

In October the Saturday Walking Group enjoyed their last walk of 2021. The walkers started in Stanford in the Vale and ventured to Hatford and beyond. The weather was kind, with pleasant views across fields and through woodlands. They also stopped briefly at the pretty church of St. John’s, Hatford. The group now has a traditional sabbatical before starting again in March 2022.

June Grunwald would be pleased to hear from any group members willing to organise a walk next year. The dates are: March 26, April 23, May 28, June 25, July 23, August 27, September 24, October 22. Please contact June with a preferred date and possible walking area.
