We urgently need more walk leaders as David won't and cannot possibly lead the vast bulk of the walks in this group. We have 666 walkers in this group, surely you aren't all lazy and just want to follow the leader? Whilst he does enjoy leading walks, its high time we have other leaders stepping up to the plate and volunteering their time. If you put nothing in expect to receive nothing in return. Also to help contribute to the cost of running this group, please note from May 2019 onwards, we will request a donation of £0.50 to £1 per walk per walker depending on length of walk, unless you have paid £20 as a one off fee, or £10 if you are a walk leader. Again David cannot be expected to cough up the £180 cost of running the group every year.
Hi All, We'll head out of Cricklade towards the lakes via an old railway line before heading back through the meadows. Flat walk at a pace of 3mph. Pub stop, Red Lion, is optional at the end of the walk :). Cheers, Richard
Springfield Community Campus
This walk through open countryside takes us, after tackling many stiles, to the renowned National Trust village of Lacock, for picnic lunch break. This quaint village with half-timbered stone cottages and medieval tithe barn has provided a location for many film and TV productions, including Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey. Step back in time and enjoy an unspoiled Cotswold village with a variety of buildings dating from the 15th to the 18th centuries. Bonnets and long swishing skirts are no longer required though! Lacock Abbey, founded in the 13th century as a nunnery, is also notable as the birthplace of photography when owned by William Fox Talbot. His granddaughter presented the village and Abbey to the National Trust. Sponsored by Carl Todd Clinic.
