The walk, led by Dr Tony Fincham (THS Chairman), will be 8-9 miles through the countryside of The Trumpet-Major and 'The Melancholy Hussar of the German Legion', returning along the coastal path.
There are some steep gradients and proper walking boots or shoes are essential.
Please bring a packed lunch because our intended lunch stop pub (The Sly Fox) has suddenly closed down.
The walk will finish in good time for the start of the AGM at 5pm; prior to which drinks and other refreshments will be available for thirsty walkers!
There are two fish-and-chip shops and a pub (The Spice Ship) very close to the AGM venue at the conclusion of the walk.
