Worcester

Walks - Long 2

Our walks start and finish at various locations on Fridays throughout the year.

Long Walks 2 (4.5 to 7 miles) all walks leave at 10.00am

Leaders and Contacts: Shan South (Long Walks 2) and the deputy is Bev Webber

Please see Dates for your Diary below for the current Walking Programme.

Our Friday meetings usually start at a pub. By arriving early we are usually able to use their facilities and pre order/book our lunch/snack if required with the publican. Around the halfway point on a walk we stop for a short "banana break".

Walks are usually planned and led by the group members ensuring a wide variety of locations. Help in planning walks is always available and new walk leaders are encouraged. Click below for the following useful guides:

The group combines with the short walks group and and long walks group 1 to hold an Annual Meeting in January each year. A nominal subscription of £1 pa is collected at the meeting to help pay for maps, paper, ink etc.

If you would like to join the Long Walks 2 Group, first join the U3A, then email your U3A number and details to Shan South. U3A policy is that dogs are not allowed on U3A walks.

We also organise an annual walking holiday, which is open to all group members and is based in one of the hotels operated by HF Holidays. There are a selection of walks organised by group members available each day providing a choice of terrain and distance. Hotel bookings are full board and walks are organised by group members. Worcester U3A Walking Group is affiliated to HF Holidays and enjoys exclusive benefits and discounts. Walkers make their own way there and numbers are usually such that we have exclusive use of the hotel. Holidays are popular and usually fill up at the Annual Meeting. The next Walking holiday which is in April 2020 will be in the Lake District.

Area: Circular - Race Course and Riverside Walk, Worcester
Meeting Point: Car Park opposite The Pump House

Length: 4- 5 miles
Stiles: None
Difficulty: Easy
Description:
The walk is a circular route of the river (provided there is no more flooding!!) and is an opportunity for those who feel so inclined to get out and stretch their legs after the Christmas festivities. We will be walking along the Diglis basin side on the return route as Arnie who lives close by has invited us all to pop in for a glass of fizz!! I will check with the pub "The Winning Post" to see if they are happy to accommodate us after the walk for light refreshments. On previous years we have had soup and/or filled rolls as well as some liquid refreshment.
