The village Footpath Project are holding their Autumn Village Walk on Sunday 20th October. The details are similar to previous walks (but a different route of course) with a choice of a longer or shorter walk to suit different people.
These walks are a great way to get to know people as well as exploring different parts of our valuable network of public rights of way.
Meet at the Village Hall, at 1.45pm for the longer walk or 3pm for the less challenging walk.
Afternoon tea will be served in the hall at the end of the walks, between (about) 4.30pm and 5pm. The hall committee would appreciate small donations to cover this cost. Continue reading
The Footpath Project’s Spring Village Walk on Sunday 2nd June will follow the successful format of previous village walks, but with new routes that will be revealed on the day.
These social walks are a great way to get to know your neighbours while appreciating the beautiful countryside around our village. Newcomers will be made very welcome by the regular walkers.
There will be the usual choice of a longer walk (about 5 miles or so) and an easier short walk (around 2 miles on flatter ground). Highlights of the short walk will include some spring wildflowers in local meadows, while the longer walk will be through woodland. Continue reading
On Sunday 7th April, 20 people strolled through Manor Woods to listen to the dawn chorus, led by professional naturalist Ed Drewitt and organised by the village Footpaths Project.
Starting in the dark & in silence, we were able to appreciate the woodland waking up & coming to life. Here’s a bit of what it sounded like, recorded by Jon Dunkelman. Continue reading
Wye Valley Women have established a social walking group which meets outside the Village Hall at 9:30am on the first Tuesday of the month. The next Walk-&-Talk will be on Beacon Hill and takes place on Tuesday 5th March.
We will meet outside the Village Hall at 9:30am. The walk starts by climbing gently up through the woods to Maryland. Those who prefer to avoid uphills can meet us at 9:40am at the Woodland car park opposite the end of Maryland Lane. We will then walk through the woodland to join the Wye Valley Walk. We will return across Beacon Hill, where there will be 3 options – to the top of the Beacon; staying relatively flat back through Maryland; or something in between!
There are no stiles and one kissing gate. The walk is mostly on forest tracks but it may be muddy in places. Please wear sensible footwear and dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
There is no charge. All are welcome – you do not need to be a WVW member. Well-behaved dogs on leads are also welcome to join us.
For further information, please ring Jane on 861974
Village Walk, spring 2018 – remember the sunshine?
