Overview

This walk is for up to 30 people, including the leader.

A circular walk through the woodlands near the villages of Watton-at-Stone and Bramfield, possibly to be accompanied by Advent chocolate!

Our walk starts from Watton-at-Stone railway station, from where we head south towards Watkin's Hall Farm and then Perrywood Lane as we enter Bramfield Woods. Our route remains more or less in woodland until we reach the 16th Century manor house of Queen Hoo Hall, after which we head out across open country for a short while until we reach Bramfield Park Wood.

We then gradually turn from south to west, skirting the edges of the woodland, before reaching the village of Bramfield, where we will have a lunch stop and an opportunity to admire thatched houses and the medieval church. Following our break, we head back northwards, entering Bramfield Woods again, and follow a twisting path to once more emerge into open countryside, and making our way back to Watton-at-Stone. Here, there will be the option of visiting a pub to warm up before returning to the train station.

Please note that this walk is not suitable for dogs.

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.

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.
