Walking Group 2018


The Walking Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. We usually meet in Abberley Village Hall carpark at 9.30 am in order to car share where possible.

The next walk will be on Tuesday March 20th, details to be announced.

January 16th - Astley

The first walk of the year took place on a cold but sunny morning. Led by Tracy and Arthur the dog we set off from Astley Burf on a 4-5 mile circuit. The scenery was varied, through farmland, hamlets and open spaces outside Stourport. An interesting highlight was a visit to clamber up to Redstone Caves on the edge of Stourport. We passed Larford Lakes and then followed the river back to our cars, before going on for a delicious lunch at Broomfields farm shop. 


February 20th  - Wyre Forest

Following days of wet weather it was decided to follow one of the marked trails in the Wyre Forest in order to avoid trudging through too much infamous Worcestershire mud. Leaving the icy cold wind of the Abberley car park at least we found relative shelter in the forest. Eight ladies and a dog set off from the Callow Hill Visitor Centre to walk the 4.7 mile bicycle route. Despite it being half-term we avoided too many crowds and did an attractive circuit through coniferous and deciduous woodland, for a while following the path of the disused railway line which runs alongside Dowles Brook. We stopped to admire the antics and pluck of quite small children enjoying the 'Go Ape' tree top circuit.  A good hot lunch was enjoyed at The Hop Pole in Bewdley.
