Walking (Half Day – Wednesday)


Activity

The walks are about 5 miles long using footpaths, bridleways, farm tracks, quiet lanes and sometimes roads and can be rather muddy so stout walking shoes/boots are essential. Stiles are an inevitable part of these walks!

Where and when

We meet at various locations, generally within a 30-40 min drive from Market Harborough, with a walk start time of 10.00 a.m. The starting point is published in the Newsletter and on the SLU3A website.

Other information

As of May 2018 there are now a few places available in this group. If you would like to join please contact me to see whether this still is the case and for any other information. If you are able to lead a walk this would be much appreciated! Most current members of the group take their turn in doing this although that isn't essential.

Walking (Wednesday Half Day) – July Report

Yet another pretty uneventful walk! The ‘Three Peaks’ walk from Tilton on the Hill may have started in fairly chilly, overcast conditions but certainly finished with blue sky and blazing hot sunshine! The peaks in question of Whatborough, Colborough and Robin-a-Tiptoe at 230, 220 and 222 metres respectively hardly compare with Yorkshires and what’s more […]
