HFG – Public Walks 2022

We have decided to again organise a few public events this year, and depending how they go may do more later.

In the past our walks have attracted a diverse bunch of local folk, so why not come along for a pleasant stroll in good company?

Free parking is available at all start points. Accompanied children and dogs [on leads] welcome on all walks. Sensible footwear advised, plus a drink/snack – and maybe a torch on the Glow Worm walk. Most walks are between 2 – 3 hrs duration.

Make a note in your diary now, and keep up to date via the Hodnet website or our groups own Facebook page – search for Hodnet Footpath Group. Better still, register your interest and we’ll keep you informed of chnages/developments.

Note. If weather is terrible, these events will be cancelled. If you have emailed David Wilson he will add you to our list of ‘friends’ and then he can send a cancellation email on the day to warn you. So, please do let him know in advance which walk you’d like to attend, and how many will be accompanying you. Thanks.

Register your interest via: david.wilson65@icloud.com

The walk routes can all be seen in the relevant walk leaflets, downloadable from https://hodnet.org.uk/main/index.php/tourism/local-walk-leaflets/

PROGRAMME

Thursday May 12th – Peplow to Stoke on Tern church, and return (Hodnet Walks 9).

This is a varied and interesting walk through relatively unknown countryside. Depart 10.00 AM from Peplow Chapel where we’ll meet. There is limited roadside/verge parking by Chapel, so share vehicles if coming in a group. Note If you feel the complete walk is to far for you, you could arrange to leave a spare car by Stoke on Tern church and end the walk there.

Thursday 2nd June – Wollerton Wetlands and to Helshaw Grange. (Hodnet Walks 5)

A varied walk with good views. Depart 10.00AM. Meet/roadside parking by Wollerton Village Room.

Friday July 1st – Annual evening Glow Worm walk (Hodnet Walks 1).

Meet by old Railway Line bridge on Station Road, Hodnet, for a 10.30PM (nightime!) departure. Note. As we require a dry/warm night for this, if it is wet/raining this walk will be delayed to the following Friday – 8th July.
