Overview

A circular walk with a snack stop. Precise route to be determined nearer the time depending on  conditions, mud and river level, but basically it should be an easy and mostly flat Sunday morning ramble, five miles at most, with no major hills or challenges, and some mulled wine and mince pies partway round .  Christmas hats, jumpers and sparkle welcome but definitely not compulsory !

Travel
Car:
 free carpark in centre of Newchurch, opposite Newchurch Primary School.

Bus: Sorry I do try and find bus-friendly walks but unfortunately this one isn’t. Perhaps any drivers who are willing could offer a lift to any non-driver local to them (consider using whatsapp group for this purpose if applicable), or indeed carsharing generally makes parking easier, and helps keep the ramblers’ environmental impact down.
