O- Nature Walks Group

#A York U3A Walk amongst nature, an insight into local history and a chat over coffee

This is a relaxing walk mainly amongst a nature environment – time: usually 1-2 hours including the coffee stop.
The walk when weather permitting, will be based along the riverside areas of Fishergate and Fulford, Rowntree Park and surrounding green walking spaces such as Walmgate Stray, Heslington, Knavesmire, etc, and would later go from Lendal Bridge towards the Clifton side of the river. We might also like to visit other green spaces in different areas of York. Anyone who wishes to share with us any personal knowledge on the area being walked, would be appreciated. We stop for a coffee and chat either half-way through or at the end of the walk when you might prefer to take more than a drink.
Numbers on each walk will not exceed 12. Priority will be given to those who are not marathon walkers and in need of an incentive to start walking, some friendship and hope in the coming Spring of 2022.

When emailing, could I ask you please to type in large print.
