Adding a recognised 6 figure grid ref with 2 prefix letters allows the start point to be checked on the adjacent map. This map can be used to determine a grid ref from post codes, etc, but Wellingborough do prefer the use of the OS Grid Ref for its accuracy.

Meeting point; This is not the starting point and is NOT normally required on our walks.

If unsure, select what you think is best and the secretary will alter if necessary; (for example, ‘moderate’ relates to the length of the walk, rather than a ‘degree of difficulty’).
