Walks glorious walks – come on down and get stuck in


 This site is usually all about me (and why not), not forgetting Rufus and Grizzle but I have had a lot of feedback from people suggesting I use it to give more coverage to information about upcoming or just available walks. I have just received an update and so here is some of the content…

Just for fun - no this Cheetah is not living wild in Britain...

On Saturday the 26th of March you can join the Plain and Avon Walk, a 14 miler from Casterley Camp to Stonehenge, this is an inaugural walk so quite exciting. Starting at the Iron Age hill fort of Casterley Camp high on Salisbury Plain, goes down the picturesque Avon Valley, and takes in the pre-historic sites of Durrington Walls and Woodhenge before it reaches Old King and New King Barrows at Stonehenge. More information available here but it will cost you £10 which is payable in person on the day.

No invite to that wedding well in that case you can get involved in a weekend that combines geocaching with the challenges of an orienteering score event. The event is being held with the support of the Forestry Commission at Grizedale Forest Park, in the central Lake District, on April 30 and May 1. Never been geocaching or don’t have a GPS, join in with the Getting Started sessions where they have free GPS loans. A day pass is £10 for Adults and £5 for Juniors & Mini-cachers with booking available on the day. Or you can book now online at the Geo-Adventures website.

Friends of the Peak District are running a charity walk to celebrate the 60th birthday of the UK’s first national park on Saturday 16 April. Starting from Thornbridge Hall in the heart of the Peak District, there is a choice of two circular routes using the beautiful Monsal Trail, either the more challenging 15 miles (8.30am) or the more leisurely 7.5 miles (11.30 am). The walks return you to Thornbridge Hall.

My favorite ……..the CHASE Superheroes Midnight Walk will see hundreds of people walking a ten mile route around Guildford at midnight all dressed as superheroes! Last year the event raised an enormous £90,000 to support the children and their families at CHASE hospice care for children. In order to reach that amount and more this year, the organisers are relying on an even larger number of people taking part. More on the CHASE website.
