Hi All, With the longest day being tomorrow, how about an evening walk tonight? It's reasonably flat & heads out to West Swindon. Optional pub at end of walk. Minimum of 4 RSVP's by 18:00 for this event to take place. Cheers, Richard
We are planning another weekend walking the South West Coast Path. We are staying at the YHA at Lizard Point on the Saturday and Sunday nights. I will be traveling down early on the Saturday morning and back on the Monday afternoon. We plan to walk the section between Falmouth and Lizard Point. Walks will be between 15 and 20 miles per day. If you want to join us but not walk as far we can look into shorter options. The YHA has spaces but is filling up fast so book soon.
Come and visit the oldest working steam engines in the world still performing the job they were built to do! There are two beam engines, one of which is an original 200-year-old Boulton & Watt. Both are fed by a hand-stoked, coal-fired Lancashire boiler. These are magnificent pieces of industrial archaeology appealing both to families and steam enthusiasts. The engine house is set in unspoiled Wiltshire countryside close to the old market town of Marlborough. This weekend has been selected as it is one of the weekends that the engines are steamed in operation. There is an on site cafe, and as a destination is particularly interesting. We will be doing a 6 mile walk in the area as well. Tickets £8 on the day, For more information look at:- https://www.croftonbeamengines.org/
