Overview

The walk sarts at Melton Picnic Site &  please do note the earlier start time. This is to allow people to travel by train should they wish. If you travel by train, please either wait outside the station for the rest of the group to join you or cross the crossing & meet us. 

The walk will use footpaths & quiet roads to skirt around the town before joining the river path to take us back to the start. 

As always with our Saturday walks we'll be stopping for a coffee break, should you wish to join us, at HMS Vale. 

The route can be muddy & have puddles.
