Grand Union Canal walkers reach Birmingham Jan 2017

 

There are three Walking Groups - two of which focus on circular walks of 4-5 miles, and a third for long distance walkers.

Group 1 meets on the third Tuesday of each month, and Group 2 meets on the third Friday of the month. In both cases the walks start around 10am (although the timing may vary with the location).

The routes are usually circular and about 4 to 6 miles in length. Group members take it in turns to plan the route and lead the walk. We usually end at a suitable pub or restaurant for lunch. The starting point is announced in advance to group members. Members should share the travel arrangements where convenient.

 Walkers are welcome to join either or both the groups.

The Long Distance Group are committed walkers who prefer a longer walk and embark on a more challenging course in monthly stages. So far they have undertaken the Chiltern Way, the Thames Path, the Grand Union Canal and the Oxford Canal. The current project is to follow the Chiltern Way.

Most years, there is also a walking holiday arranged during the summer months. See the Holidays page for further details.

 

 

Costs

Walkers pay for their own lunch at the pub.
