Overview

A walk through Danbury Common, Lingwood Common and Danbury Country Park. The area is quite hilly so the walk is a relatively short 3.6 miles. Plenty of pretty places to stop for a rest.

Wednesday wanders are short walks, typically 3.5 to 4.5 miles, taken at a leisurely pace with frequent breathers if required. Ideal for new walkers and those who appreciate a bit more scenery appreciation and a bit less hiking. There may be stiles, but typically no more than 3, and of course, mud. Walking boots and appropriate clothing essential.
