Sunday 26th February 2017 - 10:30am - Worstead - 11 miles

Post by Julian » Sun Feb 19, 2017 11:01 pm

I will be leading a walk starting from Ruin Road in Worstead, post-code area NR28 9RW. Find parking in the streets nearby, but park considerately and not in the middle of a road, in a pond or in someone's back garden. The walk will take place next Sunday, 26th February, with the start time being at 10:30. The walk will be around 11 miles long, so challenging without being excessive :)

I've attached a map of the route, which is what I will base this walk around, but I will divert to find some absolutely fascinating historic points of interest (OK, it's all relative, but I'll try and make it just a bit interesting).

Please bring some snacks, such as crisps, biscuits, cake, etc, and maybe some vegetables if you'd like for a little bit of variety. Make sure that you bring water (or similar liquids of your choice, but don't bring lots of Red Bull as we have enough hyper-active people as it is). Bring warm clothing and anything else that would make you comfortable (and that is practical to carry, a sofa isn't ideal, but things like big bags of Twiglets are).

I also propose that we visit the White Lady pub afterwards if it's open (as it's challenging to go there if it's shut, so I didn't need to mention the open bit really). They have real ale, so that's sold that to me.

The walk pace will be moderate using my walking speed (or blisteringly fast using Richard's walking speed), so is suitable for nearly everyone. There will be lots of exciting things to talk about, such as the upcoming 10th anniversary of Hike Norfolk, the Norfolk Ramblers AGM discussion which is taking place the day before (that's a hint it'd be great if anyone from Hike Norfolk wants to go to that!) and last, but certainly by no means least, the incredible achievement of Clive walking 51 miles. I can tell you the secrets behind that walk, the pain, the tears and the frustration (this is sounding like a Daily Mail news story, but there's no fake news with my stories).

I haven't reccy'ed this walk yet, but I will try to do so in the week. If anyone knows the local area and can see that the route has a problem (such as the canal has collapsed or something) then please let me know in advance! As everyone will agree, my walks are a by-word for excellence and I will of course maintain that reputation.

Everyone is welcome, and I hope to see some of you there!!!!

Julian.

Lucas, I think it's important for me to reach out to the dietary needs of everyone, so I'm open to people bringing vegetables if they wish..... And I hope your feet have recovered from last week :)

Looking forwards to seeing everyone. Due to the unforeseen circumstances of Storm Doris, the walk might not have been reccy'ed to the usual level of excellence which I demand of myself. So there may be some additional drinks stops whilst I survey the terrain for the more efficacious way of reaching the path that we're meant to be on. But life is an adventure, just as this walk will be.

Love that you are so open minded :lol:

Feet are alright now, but it took me a couple of days to heal from blisters. GF had lots of fun seeing me limp like a 80-year old around the house. Will learn to choose shoes and socks better next time ;)
