A Hogmanay Hike - but no, it won’t be a route march, just a good way of clearing
your head of any leftover 2018 cobwebs, and getting yourself ready to honour all
those New Year Resolutions. The walk will explore the land to the east of
Dereham, mainly south of the A47 in the Tud Valley.
The walk starts at 10:00 from the parking areas at The Neatherd: parking is
available just off the corner of the road, or at 3 further places down the
road/track running east.
The walk is about 6½ miles, taking about 2½ hours, will include a
short break half way round for those bringing their own refreshments (or who
just want a short rest). There are no gates or stiles on the walk. Well
controlled dogs are welcome on the walk, though open spaces are limited and we
do cross and walk along a number of roads. Please note that there are no
toilets or any food and drink outlets at any point on the walk (including the
start point). On return, we make our way (5-10 minutes) to a nearby house, where
tea or coffee plus seasonal food will be waiting.
Tickets cost £5, which includes all refreshments. Booking is requested to
ensure we have adequate refreshments available.
Further details and tickets are available from Dereham Walkers are Welcome
members, or from Ken Hawkins
