List of Walks

These walks have all been published in past issues of the "The Village News". They have been devised by "one man and his dog" who takes absolutely no responsibility for accuracy or for any injury or mishap that might befall any person who follows them. And please don't try and blame the dog!

To see the starting points of the walks use the Starting Points link on the left. To find nearby pubs, click on the walk then select Search nearby and enter pubs in the search box. This will show their locations.

You can also use the Beer in the Evening or The Good Pub Guide links on the left hand menu for further information.

The decline of rural pubs continues apace: we cannot guarantee that any particular pub remains open or serves food. You are strongly recommended to phone and check. Where we have discovered a web site for a pub marked on the map, we have included a link for your convenience. This does not imply any sort of endorsement.
