Map and Compass Reading Day
Published: Wednesday, 28 June 2017 20:30
An excellent day led by Peter wth great patience and fortitude as we scrutinised the maps to distinguish ROW, edges of fields, permissive paths etc. In the afternoon we tackled compasses and practised outside despite the low 12degree temperature, after the 32 degree highs of last week . Then we mapped out a walk to follow. We started confidently in the mist and rain. Peter let us get lost - easily done ! - and then to find ourselves and get back onto the route - a very good learning experience ! Many thanks to Peter for a really useful day. Who will be the first to lead a walk now ??
Late Spring Bank Holiday Monday 29th May 2017.
Published: Wednesday, 17 May 2017 15:59
We rarely have walks programmed for Bank Holidays, but this joint initiative by the three Parish Councils gives us the opportunity to take part in a 10 mile circular walk, starting at 10.00am from Ousden Village Hall Car Park and walking clockwise via Lidgate and Dalham, where ‘facilities’ will be available at the Village Halls. The three pubs on the route are also expected to be open for refreshment, but not early in the day. In any case, a picnic lunch is recommended, as on any other longer walk.
The route is way-marked and will be mainly on public rights of way, well known to many of us, but will also include a couple of ‘permissive’ stretches which, I understand, will remain open to walkers ‘after the day’.
