Kings Norton & District

Walking - Over 5m

Group Leader: Steve Wright

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month (with occasional variations due to Christmas and other bank holidays)

Walks normally of between 6 and 8 miles, using a variety of paths, tracks, tow-paths and avoiding roads as far as possible. Unless otherwise specified for a particular walk, we meet at Rowheath Pavilion between 9:15 and 9:30 am to co-ordinate transport and aim to finish before 2 pm. All walks are within 1 hour drive and aimed at those with some country walking experience but are not strenuous, although they may include hilly bits. Participants are expected to have reasonably sturdy boots or shoes and carry waterproofs and/or sun-gear and also snacks and drink. If you need to bring lunch we'll tell you each time.

Our next walk will be on Thursday, March 8th. It will be organised by Steve and based on the Dudmaston Estate. With luck there will still be some snowdrops around - Dudmaston is famous for them.
Meet at Rowheath Pavilion Car Park, Heath Road, as usual, between 0915 and 0930. Bring a packed lunch. I expect the walk to take 3- 4 hours (with breaks).
Please let me know if you are likely to be coming, so I know to wait for you.

(We still need a walk leader for April 26th and most 4th Thursdays after that. It would be helpful to let me know if you want to organise one at least two weeks before it is scheduled. Note that if you’d prefer to organise a walk on a 2nd Thursday I’m happy to move mine to the 4th.)
