Wed Dec 5th The walk starts at the village car park, Feckenham starting at 10.00 AM.

The walk will include field paths, bridle ways, farm tracks and a short distance on roads. The exact route will be subject to the conditions of the cultivation of fields and if the hunt decides to ride the bridle ways (yes this does happen). There are 7 or 8 stiles and a couple of plank ditch bridges and a really nice brook bridge. No serious climbs. There is a 'drop out' point where the walk can be shortened if it turns out the weather is wet and raining. Count on two to two and a half hour walking.
