Guided Walk from Pitton Village Hall #6

Date/Time
Thursday 13 December 2018 at 10:30

Guided walk from the Silver Plough #5

Are you interested in exploring the countryside from Pitton and walking the
network of local public footpaths in the company of others?

I have recently organised a series of guided walks and have been asked by some to arrange a slightly shorter walk of around 5 miles.  This walk also has the added bonus of tea/coffee and cake at the end!

Details of the fifth in my series of local guided walks are below:

Date:  Thursday 13th December 2018

Time:
Meet at the Pitton Village Hall car park at 1215 for a prompt 1030 start.

Walk description:
This circular walk is just under seven miles and follows footpaths from Pitton through Hound Wood and Bentley Wood to reach Winterslow, returning to Pitton on the drove across the downs.

Is this walk suitable for me?

The walk will cover approximately seven miles.
There are no stiles to climb.
There are no steep ascents / descents.
The route is mainly on footpaths and tracks, with short road section in Winterslow.
At this time of the year sections of the route might be muddy so please wear suitable footwear and be prepared for wet weather.

How long will it take?

Walking as a group means we walk at a pace suitable for all. You should allow between 2.5 hours to 3 hours.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes well-behaved dogs are allowed. But must be kept on a lead through woodland.
Please pick up after your dog!

How much will it cost?

There is no charge for the walk, but donations to my Walk 2,018 Miles Challenge
in support of The Trussell Trust would be welcome:
https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/two-dogs-and-an-awning

There will be a charge for tea/coffee and cake with all proceeds going to the Trussell Trust.

How do I join the walk?

Please let me know you are coming so I know how many to expect on the day.

Contact Details: paul.fredericks@btinternet.com or 07742 419325

Can I come just for tea/coffee and cake?

Yes. If you feel unable to take part in the walk, but would like to join the returning walkers for tea/coffee and cake you are welcome at the village hall at 15.15. But please do let me know you are coming!
