Well I believe this is 'A Proper Pub Crawl' according to Clive who is kindly guiding us on this walk. We will be meeting at the junction of The Street and Church Lane and walking past some really old pubs on our 6 mile wander (don't worry I don't think you have to have a drink at all of them !) Starting at Stow Maries we will be walking cross country to the Norton at Cold Norton (not a really old pub ....and not a scheduled stop ...unless off course ??? then off again cross country to Purleigh and the Purleigh Bell (established 1635 !!!) ...This pub has limited opening times and so not sure you will get any refreshments there...From there we go cross country again returning to the Prince of Wales (Stow Maries) ... this place is only 200 years old ...and i think you might have better luck with their opening hours. Hopefully it will be good weather and you will be able to have refreshments outside. This looks like another great event. Don't forget your water and proper walking shoes / boots are likely to be required. Sorry I can't join you for this one ...but have fun.
Clive is kindly guiding us on a pleasant 4 mile circular walk around the Naze (old English for nose) ... we will first follow the sea coast before turning towards the creeks and mudflats of the Walton channel. Much of the route is through a nature reserve and there should be a good view of shipping leaving Felixstowe. There is a cafe in the car park (Let's Car Share Where Possible)
Who fancies coming and joining Teresa and Kay for an inexpensive meal at what was one of our regular venues before the dreaded 'lock down' Wendy has booked 2 tables of 6 for 7pm and I have booked 3 tables of 4 for 7.30pm in the upstairs area (our usual location) so we pretty much have the whole of the top floor.
Here’s another little slow walk about to solve a murder mystery (it is a made up one), this time around the urban parts of central Southend. There will be a small charge of £1 to pay for the purchase of the trail and printing cost to allow a copy each. Please bring a pen. The walk should take around an hour and a half covering around 1.5 miles. It takes us through town and shops so is not suitable for dogs. I thought we could finish with a fish and chips take away; or whatever you may fancy on the day. Maybe weather dependent. We will go in two groups of 6, who should keep to social distancing guidelines at all times. Please do not attend the event if you are feeling unwell or have any coronavirus symptoms. This is a group members only event.
