PALGRAVE WALKING GROUP

Our group meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month leaving Palgrave Community Centre at 9.45 a.m. Everyone is welcome to join our friendly group but it is regretted that dogs cannot be allowed on our walks. Additionally Palgrave Walking Group, or its walk leaders, cannot be held liable for any injury sustained whilst on any walk they organise. Please contact Bob Solley on 01379 651706 (mobile 07969916974) or bobsolley@aol.com if you would like further details.

Car sharing is encouraged to avoid congestion at some rural or public house car parks where the walk actually starts.

November 2017 Walks

 
Margaret M-L has supplied us the following details for a walk on November 14th Meet at Palgrave at normal time or for those close to Rickinghall Village Hall at 10 ish

OK. It's a rural walk, no crossing major roads, and is a walk to enjoy the scenery, lanes, bridges, fields, copses and so on. A sensory walk I think. It is made up of part of an official 10 mile walk and dog walking walks and covers both Rickinghall and Botesdale. I would think it's 3miles plus as I have no way of measuring it! I hope everyone enjoys it. We meet at Rickinghall Village hall, parking either outside on Hinderclay Road or in car park on the grass.

 Alisons walk for  the 28th of November.   The walk will be a rerun of an earlier walk I led, based from Thelnetham although this time with some different aspects on views. Normal time at Palgrave or possibly if it's closer for you The White Horse car park, but I will confirm in the next  months newsletter.

    WEDNESDAY WALKERS

    This is a walking group based in Diss organised and led by Janet and David Bryant, (tel: 01379 643263; email david-janet1@tiscali.co.uk) Details of each months walks can be obtained from the Parish Office of St Marys Church, Diss from the 1st of each month or by visiting David's web journal at http://davidabryant.wordpress.com/

Steve will lead this walk which will be a circular one from Weybread, in Suffolk. From the village's round-towered church we'll strike across country, northwards, in the direction of Harleston. As we reach the River Waveney, we'll turn south-west to follow its southern bank along the Angles Way, in the direction of Brockdish. Before reaching Brockdish, we'll turn away from the river, heading up to higher land, for Upper Weybread and Greengate Farm and - eventually - the point we started from. It's varied, attractive terrain with one steep slope, a couple of stiles (one requiring a parachute) and one stretch of glutinous slough, approaching Instead Hall Farm.  The distance is approximately five miles (Steve-miles) and it's a grand walk! There's some parking at the church in Weybread but the pub in the village is unlikely to be open on a Tuesday so we'll go elsewhere - perhaps Brockdish, or Fressingfield.
