This will be a 4-5 mile walk exploring the woods.

A few years ago we had an evening tour by one of the volunteers and it was surprising how many people hadn't been there before.

On that occasion there wasn't much time to explore the whole area so this is your opportunity.

It is varied terrain with undulating underfoot which can be muddy in places.

As well as some of the wider paths which are firmer underfoot, we will go off piste on some narrower paths which do go uphill.

There are two lakes and a wonderful waterfall all looked after by volunteers who do a fabulous job maintaining it.

It is hoped the new cafe will be open by then so we can enjoy a cuppa and cake at the end of the walk.
