A happy return - Harleston

The September Walk

This month’s walk began in the town of Harleston, not far from Diss. The smaller than usual group of members enjoyed a very scenic walk, in spite of extremely blustery conditions.

The route started through the town, passing the old railway station and continuing into the countryside to the north and east of Harleston. It progressed through some lovely wooded and open field areas and quiet country lanes. The whole route of seven miles was a comfortable distance for both seasoned walkers and two new members who accompanied us.

It proved to be quite a slow amble as an abundance of fully ripe blackberries often provided an irresistible diversion. Everyone now has sufficient fruit to make lots of crumbles or pies! The circular walk finished with a very welcome lunch in one of Harleston’s local pubs.
