Lockerley Walking Group on Saturday 5th October

Meet at East Tytherley church at 1030 for a nine mile circular walk to Broughton and back stopping at the Tally Ho for lunch.  There are only one or two well maintained stiles and the route is mostly easy walking along paths and tracks with some quiet road walking along the old roman road.  However, there is a longish uphill and a longish downhill. This walk is one that did not happen in July and local so doing half is an option. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or phone 017 94 34 07 02 by 1st October if you are coming.
