Sunday 5 February 2017 - Pigney's Wood North Walsham Walk - 18 miles

Post by Julian » Sun Jan 29, 2017 6:08 pm

Hello :)

I'm leading a walk on Sunday 5 February which is the inaugural walk in the newly re-formed Legstretchers group. This is a long distance walking group within Norfolk Ramblers which will hold a walk on the first Sunday of every month, and more details are at http://www.legstretchers.org.uk/. This walk will be a joint walk between Hike Norfolk and Legstretchers, with several members of Norwich group also coming along.

The walk is longer than our usual Hike Norfolk distance at 18 miles, but everyone is very welcome to try it. The pace will be moderate, but I don't envisage any issues for those people comfortable with walking 12 or 13 miles or so. NB, the walk is circular and so there isn't a shorter option on this walk.

Meet at Pigney's Car Park off Hall Lane near North Walsham at 09:30. Bring food and drinks.

This walk is also listed on Meetup at:

Cheers,

Julian.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a figure of 8 walk (as some people thought) so walkers will need to be reasonably confident that they can complete the full 18 miles.
