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.

May 2017 Walks (and June 13th)


Herewith details of our walk for Tuesday May the 9th which will be led by Keith and Margaret.   Meet at Palgrave as usual, then car sharing to Hoxne where there is ample parking at St Edmunds Hall. The Hall is next to Goldbrook Bridge, believed to be the site of the capture of St Edmund in 870, we will then skirt the field containing a stone cross commemorating the site of his martyrdom before walking through Hoxne village. We will cross the B1118 then walking alongside the River Waveney, passing the Mill House and then coming out of the river valley. The walk skirts Brakey Wood (planted as a Millenium Project ) passing the carving of a Palaeolithic man, then into  Cross Street, before crossing the Gold Brook. We return to Hoxne and the Swan PH on the Eye Road. The walk is approx. 4.5 miles using field edges, tracks and short lengths of quiet road, there is one style. The Swan is happy to accommodate us but if there is a number of the group wanting to eat there, they suggest we phone ahead.

The Walk on the 23rd of May Will be Led by Steve M and Jane T.   It’s back – by popular demand! The ever-popular Grundle walk. We’ll be doing a circular walk from Stanton Community Centre, heading south to the edge of Wyken Hall. This time, our experience of The Grundle will be in the opposite direction – and we’ll be walking along a stretch that we didn’t enter last time, as we come to the end of the walk. It’s a grand walk: trees, paths, lots of green stuff, not too much mud - nothing too challenging. Let our motto be “Enjoyment, not endurance.”

Special walk on 13 June, since it will be a little different.

The walk will be around the area of Roman Camp which is near Cromer, and is a diverse walk along clifftop paths and through undulating hills with stunning views.

In view of the distance, the idea is that we leave Palgrave a little earlier at 9:30 and make a day of it (since we will be close to the longest day.) The plan is to break the walk for a picnic lunch at Roman Camp to enjoy the superb views, and then after the walk have a fish and chip meal in Cromer before making our way back to Palgrave.

Those who intend doing this walk give Alan their names on the next walk and discuss the car sharing etc so that we can have full understanding of the day prior to Alans full walk details in the June Newsletter.

    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.
