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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
February 2018 Walks
John's details for his walk on Feb 27th
Many of you may be familiar with this area but I am proposing a 5.5 mile circular walk around Diss starting at Fair Green.
The route is a combination of open country footpaths and road walking and will take us through the town centre via the new board walk along the Mere.
Refreshments will be at the Cock Inn on Fair Green.
March 2018 Walks
Alison's walk on the 13th of March.
Meet as usual at the community centre for car sharing at 9.45 or if it's better for you meet at Homersfield where we will probably set off at about 10.
The walk for the above date will start at the Homersfield Black Swan carpark. We will head north across the A143 (care will be needed as this is a fast road)
we will then head up a steep but short hill towards Alburgh, turning left just before the brow of the hill. The rest of the walk will follow footpaths and quiet country lanes we return back across the A143 to have a drink/lunch in the pub. The walk is 4.8 miles. If it is very wet we will make a short cut to avoid Low Ditch Road. If you plan to eat it may be a good idea to book in advance.
Margaret T's walk for March 27th
New Buckenham and Old Buckenham, 5 mile round walk. Starting from the Market Place ( precise parking details will be given nearer the time). Going down Church Street to take us across flat farmland and touch on Old Buckenham Stud coming out at Old Buckenham village green and All Saints Church. We will touch on the wooded moat and earthworks of New Buckenham Castle. There is a bit of main road walking and one stile. There are many places for refreshments which I will look at before the walk.

Following various conversations over the last few months I am making a suggestion
That during the Summer months we add some additional walks for those that are interested in travelling further from Palgrave on the 3rd Tuesday of the summer months.
These walks will be different from our usual walks in as much as they will take us further afield than our normal walks. I am volunteering to lead the first one in April that will be a short coastal walk followed by a pub lunch and then explore around Shotley Point between the Stour and Orwell estuaries enjoying the views over to Felixstowe Docks and Harwich. So starting now, I am looking for leaders and walks between April and September. sugestions that have been made include North Norfolk Coast, Dedham Vale, and the Broads
