INFO FOR NEW MEMBERS AT FOOT OF THIS PAGE


Our last ramble was on Sunday 31st January. The walk started in Victoria Bridge and there were 18walkers out.  We headed towards the riverbank and followed the fishermen path towards the Sion Mill. On reaching Sion weir we learned the history of the lade, swinging bridge and Herdsman's mill. We also were informed of the events associated with the cricket ground and the football pitch.  We then made our way to the Recreation club for a lovely tea. On leaving the club we did a small tour of the village and the churches and then retraced our path back to Victoria Bridge.

All photos here from this ramble.



The walk on Sat 6th Feb will start from the car park in Seskinore Forest. It is approximately 7 miles long and follows a mixture of quiet country roads, forest paths  and unofficial tracts in and around the forest park.  Due to the recent heavy rain a few areas are wet and muddy but the majority of the route is reasonably dry under foot. For a flavour of the walk please click here . I (Web Editor not Walk Leader) walked here for first time last year and i was fascinated by all the rabbit burrows , never seen such a warren before....thought i was in Watership Down)
