The pattern of a monthly led walk of the past few years will be continued in 2020.
These take place on the second Tuesday afternoon of most months.
Beginning in February 2020 and going through to November 2020.
The walks are usually of about 4 miles in length, with the occasional one of 5 miles.
The walk planned for Tuesday 10th March will continue the practice from February of staying on surfaced paths as field paths will still be muddy after the rain that has fallen in January and February.
The walk is a little under 5 miles with the opportunity to shorten it to a little over 3 miles if selected. The only hills are downhill!
The c5 mile walk will start at Castle Methodist Church at 2.00pm. We will walk down through Castle Park and along the river bank paths to The Hythe. After crossing the river, we shall take the riverside path to Wivenhoe. Once we are at Wivenhoe at approximately 4.00pm, there is the opportunity to independently return to Colchester/look around/obtain a cup of tea. There is a good service of ‘buses back into the town centre or it is possible to take the train back to the Town or North stations (once an hour to each). There is no need to let me know if you are planning to join the walk at Castle Church.
Anyone wishing to do the c3 mile shorter walk will need to be at The Hythe railway station by 2.30pm as we shall be passing there a few minutes after 2.30pm. If you will be joining the walk at The Hythe station, please let Derek know. Incidentally, there is a waiting shelter on the open platform at The Hythe station.
If anyone would like to join the walk, or hear about plans for future walks, please contact Derek.
