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.

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.
