Overview

This walk is for up to 15 people, including the leader.

Join us for a short morning walk ideal for the festive season!

This circular route from Wadesmill/Thundridge will take us through undulating countryside with great views, as we trace the valley of the River Rib. Along the way we'll also pass landcaped parkland, two fords, pretty woodland, the ruins of old Thundridge church and the festively named hamlet of Cold Christmas! And despite being in Hertfordshire, we’ll also see Mountains!

Back in the village there'll be the choice between Ermine's Cafe and The Feathers pub for post-walk refreshments.

Likely to be muddy in places on the walk so appropriate footwear recommended.

Dogs are welcome, on a lead.

Booking your place: If you would like to join, you must book in advance using the Stag Walkers Meetup group - see Notes for how to book & what to bring. If you are unable to attend, please cancel your booking so that someone else can take your place.

Please do not turn up for a walk without booking, as places are limited.

Unless you opt in to further communications, we will only use contact information you provide to get in touch about the walk.

Please car-share or use public transport if possible. To offer a lift or ask for one from a fellow walker, please use the Meetup event page.

Use our Meetup group to book your place on the walk: https://www.meetup.com/StagWalkers/

Book your place by clicking the ‘Attend’ button. If the walk is full, click ‘join waitlist’ and you will be added if a place becomes available.

Please:

DO NOT book onto a walk unless you are pretty sure you will be able to make it.

UPDATE YOUR RSVP. We understand ‘life happens’ so if you need to change your RSVP please do this at least 24 hours before the walk and before booking closes to enable someone else to take your place.

DON’T NO-SHOW on the day unless it is absolutely unavoidable (we do understand ‘life happens’) because it prevents others from enjoying a walk if it is fully booked.

*TAKE NOTE that if you no-show and/or cancel after the booking closing deadline three times, without extenuating circumstances, we will decline further bookings from you for a period of six weeks.*

Bring a packed lunch/snacks and drinks, appropriate clothing for the conditions and optionally a basic first aid kit.
