Walking 5 6 7
There is still room for you if you would like to join the Walks 567 group.
We are a friendly group of walkers who set off from prearranged locations at 10 o'clock on the third and fifth Thursday of each month. We walk through lovely countryside for 5, 6 or 7 miles and then enjoy drinks and lunch in a pub or cafe. We enjoy walking, talking and laughing. However, some members aren't so keen on dogs and we have voted not to allow dogs in our group!
Please contact the group leader for information about the next walk. You will be very welcome.
Over the last few months the 567 walkers have tramped over the Marlborough Downs starting at Hackpen Hill, marched through the Collingbourne Woods and enjoyed a "Pensioners' Lunch" at The Queen's Head, Ludgershall (£7 for 2 courses!). We gazed at the views from the Wansdyke after climbing from Bishop Cannings and explored countryside around Wilton and Great Bedwyn. What's more every single walk took place in lovely, fine weather!
If you are interested in joining the group or would like further information, please send a message to the Walking 5 6 7 Group Leader - Lynne Batsford.
Our next walk is on 21st November starting at 10 o'clock from the Waggon and Horses on the A4 at Beckhampton, Marlborough, SN8 1QJ.
We will be walking from the pub along the Wessex Ridgeway and back along the Roman road and Weston Down Gallops. No stiles, fantastic views (assuming the weather is kind!). A walk of 6.8 miles.
