May/June 2013 Walks
Tuesday 28th May 2013
Davina King will lead us on a walk starting from Kenninghall. The walk length is just under 5 miles it passes the back of Banham Zoo where you can see deer and prairie dogs. Mostly off road, quiet country lanes and tracks, with two very short sections on a moderately busy road. One low stile. We will go for refreshments to The Red Lion at Kenninghall afterwards.
Tuesday 11th June
Sam and Eileen Turner will take us on a circular walk of approximately four and a half to five miles around Banham. The walk starts from the village green in front of the church and is along quiet roads, footpaths and field edges. Details of the route are still to be finalised as, although this is a published walk, there seems to be an obstruction - possible bull in field and fence to squeeze through. We are searching for an alternative to this section and definitely will not be entering a field with a bull in it. As usual, we will visit a local hostelry afterwards for refreshments.
Tuesday 25th June
Jane Humphrey will lead us on a five mile circular walk starting from the car park in Mendham village. It goes along the edge of the Waveney Valley through woodland and on quiet paths part of the walk is on the Angles Way which passes Target Hill whose sandy slopes were used as a rifle range in the Second World War. We will go for a drink afterwards in the Sir Alfred Munnings public house, named after the famous artist who was born at Mendham Mill in 1878.
If you wish to join us on either of these walks please be at Palgrave Community Centre car park ready to leave for the starting point at 9.45 a.m.
The group meets at the community centre as a walk may have to be altered at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances such as poor walking conditions or unavailability of the walk leader/s. It also means that we can car share, causing less disturbance to the residents/other users at the walk starting point.
This is a walking group based in Diss organised and led by Janet and David Bryant, (tel: 01379 643263; email email@example.com) 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/
