Walking Group 2
The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month in the Homebase Car Park, leaving promptly at 9.45 am
We are a small, friendly group of walkers who walk at a brisk pace whilst still enjoying the beautiful countryside. Hills and stiles are not (usually) a problem! Walks are generally 5 to 6 miles and are led by members.
With all the rain during the past weeks/months making fields very muddy and soggy it was a little difficult to plan a drier walk. But 9 of us set off from Newent car park in April to do a 5.5mile walk led by Virginia Jensen. After a short distance on a narrow road we passed Oxenhall church and village hall and turned off to walk alongside part of the old canal. Not much mud along here. Reaching a bridge we had a photo stop, then went under it and up onto the top. We eventually came to some hilly, lush green fields to cross, good views and no mud here! We joined another narrow road leading us back to Oxenhall then a different path by the partially restored canal. We were fortunate to return to our cars just as it started to rain!
We meet at Homebase and share cars to get to the starting point of the walks.
Although we are a relatively small group our members have come up with an amazing range of different walks over the last year. Brief details are emailed to group members a few days before each walk.
