Rambling group
Wed Jul 3rd Meet at Crabbs Cross car park on Evesham Road to leave by 9.15 for car sharing or meet at 10.00 in the car park of the Gardeners Arms, The Strand, Charlton, Pershore WR10.
This is a lovely walk through beautiful countryside and villages, with one upward slope and 7 stiles, mostly low ones. On doing the recce walk we had to alter our route due to a missing stile but we believe the walk is still approximately 4 miles long. Despite the number of stiles, it is well worth doing.
