Recent walks and walks to come

The December walk takes place on Sunday December 14th .  Starting at Cheekpoint Quay at 1.30 pm the route takes in the river road along to Cheekpoint  Marsh and up and over the Minaun to finish back in Cheekpoint.   The Godwit have returned from Iceland, the red squirrels are gathering winter stores in the Glazing Woods, the evergreens are lustrous in the sun,  and the mince pies await at journey’s end.  We will seek dry terrain and even surface,  but it is winter,  so wear waterproof boots or walking shoes and be prepared for a gentle climb over the Minaun.   All welcome.
