What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
A 5 mile evening stroll through the beautiful Wenlock Edge woods. There are two ascents both straightforward so most people should be okay. If it is a clear evening we should get some reasonable views. The car park will remain open as I have made arrangements with the keyholder so you will not get locked in. There are some nice pubs in Much Wenlock for an after walk drink.
Due to a cancellation I have managed to get a booking for a two hour canal cruise from Norbury Junction. There is a bar on board to purchase beer etc and also tea and coffee and cake if required. It is short notice but for a summer evening cruise to get a booking is not normally possible at this late stage. There is ample parking at the premises, please do not park in the car park of the pub opposite as the owner gets a bit shirty... Could you please aim to arrive at about 19.15 so we can get off on time...thank you.
We will meet at Ironbridge for 09.30 and after form filling and instruction we will be transported along with the canoes by the event provider and some of our members to Atcham. We will launch the canoes from there and sail downstream to Ironbridge where those who transported members will be taken back to Atcham to collect their cars. We will stop to eat our packed lunch at a convenient place about two thirds of the way down the river where there is a nice beach but please bring snacks as well as rowing saps energy...There will not be room for rucsacks so you need carrier bags or similar to bring what you need. There will be some waterproof drums available on the canoe but if you wish to bring your phone wrap it up in a polythene bag..... The cost for this event is £20.00 per person payable via PayPal (£20.91 Inc PayPal fee). YOU NEED TO BRING Old pair of trainers Change of clothes Towel Packed lunch Water (Plenty of) Suncream and Bite cream A week of weightlifting in the gym to build up the arm muscles!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtrNSn6Wy4E The distance is 15 miles and we should be back in Ironbridge around 16.00... More details to follow....
An 10 mile walk through lovely countryside and woodland. We will take in Callow Hill and Flounders Folly. There is some road walking and there are some ascents but should not cause anyone any problems as we will take plenty of breaks. Parking will be at The Secret Hills Centre in Craven Arms where toilet facilities are available. After the walk tea, coffee and cake are available in the cafe. https://www.shropshirehillsdiscoverycentre.co.uk/
