Rescheduling of Winter / Spring guided walks

I have had to reschedule the two January walks (marked ***) due to the current covid situation.

I hope the following dates will suit everyone – I don’t suppose any of us are going away anywhere!

Thanks, hope to see lots of you n these walks.


I have published 6 walks on the Facebook page where you can view details and reserve places. Alternatively you can contact me via this website or email.

The walks are as follows:
