Note, please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp.
The walk: If you enjoy a good walk with a variety of things to see and do then this is the trail for you! This 11.5 mile walk takes you through the deer park up to the Old John Tower first (the building looks like a beer glass) and you can see the full deer park from here. We then head towards Beacon Hill and up past the highland cattle then back down towards Swithland wood. Our final leg of the journey is back through the deer park where you can get up close and personal with the deer.
ROUND ROBIN: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
MEETING PLACE: Meet in the car park at 9.45am, ready to leave at 10am.
