UPDATE: THANK YOU TO THE FIVE PEOPLE WHO MADE THE EFFORT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ANNUAL FOOTPATH WALKS. QUITE A DISAPPOINTING TURN OUT REALLY BUT I SUPPOSE MANY WERE BUSY BBQ’ing IN THE LOVELY WARM, SPRING WEATHER.

Regards, Jill

Starting at the Village Hall at 2pm, we will split into several groups in order to walk all the public footpaths within the parish boundary. The routes are of different lengths, so there is something for everyone. The more energetic folk may wish to run or jog, but the most of us will walk at a comfortable pace suitable for once-a-year walkers. A camera may come in handy too.

 

The origins of this practice go back many centuries. One of the historic reasons was to “beat the boundaries” of the parish. In the days before detailed maps the parish limits would be marked out by a series of boundary markers. Formal responsibility for path maintenance rests with County Council but they still need somebody to actually walk the paths each year in order to observe and report any problems…….and that is where we come in. All comers welcome – we look forward to seeing you!
