Saturday 22nd April 2017 : 10.30 - Poringland Walk - 8.6 miles

Post by Andrew » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:04 pm

Having not led a walk for a number of years I felt it about time I did. By happy coincidence it's the same weekend as the 10th Anniversary of the group.

Start point at 10.30 just south of Poringland, on the B1332 Bungay Road, in the layby on the right hand side. Nearest postcode NR14 7NA. Some will be old enough to remember when the layby was part of the old road.
Distance is 8.6 miles. N.B. These are not 'Andrew miles', which tend to be longer than everyone else's, these are RunKeeper miles.
Please bring a packed lunch AND plenty to drink, we don't want anyone getting dehydrated - thank you! And any other snacks to keep you going. Some recommend Monster Munch and Haribo sweets. :)
Remember sunscreen if necessary.
A couple parts of the recce were muddy, so wear appropriate footwear. And of course appropriate clothing for the weather on the day.
This is a beautiful walk in gently undulating countryside, well, almost flat if you're from somewhere like Yorkshire.
Route takes us along country lanes, tracks, paths, field edges etc.
Pace will not be 'Clive Top Gear' fast nor will it be at snail's pace.
There could be a pub stop part way along, depending on pub, this cold lengthen the walk a smidgeon.
Will there be any snakes? None spotted on either reccy.

All welcome, looking forward to seeing old and new members.

OK to see you too. All being well there should be one or two or three more Saturday walks this year. :)
