Our country walks generally take place on the third Saturday morning during the spring and summer starting at 10am. This year, we will have walks in the months of March, April, May, June, July and September with two additional walks:
- A re-introduced Christmas/New Year walk on Saturday, 28th December, starting at 10am
- And, by popular demand, a shorter and less demanding mid-week walk, starting at 2.30pm on Thursday, 30th May.
The latter is something of a ‘trial’ and, if it proves popular, will be included in the 2020 programme. We will publicise the details of each walk in advance on the website and in the Society’s monthly email.
Booking a place on a walk
No booking is required, just turn up for a walk at the meeting point and time given on the website and in the Society’s monthly email of events. There is no charge. If you need any information about the walks, contact Clive Rayment 01684 540296
This year’s walks
A walk around Croome Park following the carriage drive around the perimeter. This walk will take roughly an hour and a half. We will meet outside the Church on the estate to take in the fine views of the Malvern Hill. Also there is the possibility of a tour around the house if enough people are interested. The walk will be led by Eileen Clement and John Chugg. Stout footwear is recommended.
Dogs would be welcome but they must be kept on a lead at all times.
Entry to Croome Park for National Trust members will be free if membership cards are presented but non members of The Trust will have to pay the entrance fee, currently £12 for an adult.
Our final walk for 2019 takes us onto Bredon Hill for our post Christmas walk. The walk will cover about three miles, taking us from Conderton to Overbury, by walking up Bredon Hill to take in the views and return by a different route if conditions allow. Parking will be available outside The Yew Tree Inn, Conderton GL20 7PP, if you are planning on eating there after the walk. You are advised to book in for lunch on arrival. The walk is being led by Roger Sutton. Walking boots will be essential.
Dogs would be welcome but not in the pub and will need to be kept under strict control at all times.
