Walking group 2022

The Walking Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. We meet at 9.30am and have lunch afterwards.

January - Worcester & The River Severn

On a fine dry day in January a group ventured out for the first walk of 2023. A 4.5 mile route took them from the top of Pitchcroft, along the river into the town centre. After a detour through the cathedral precincts and a look at the flood levels recorded there (little did we know this would all be impassable in February when record floods submerged everything) we continued as far as the Diglis footbridge and then back up on the west bank, past the new fish pass, the county cricket ground and swan sanctuary to return to Pitchcroft via the Sabrina footbridge. There was lots of interest along the way and lovely views of the cathedral. A cosy lunch was enjoyed at The Pump House environmental centre in Gheluvelt park.

February - Abberley

On a pouring wet morning a hardy group cheerfully wrapped up in waterproofs and had a bracing walk around the village including a muddy ascent of the hill.
