The 10 mile hike will be through woodlands, across streams and up St Catherine's Hill, through fields and another small hill before meandering our way back to the town centre.

We will have a short Protected content stop at The Bridge Inn Pub in Shawford. We will not stop for a long lunch break there just a quick drink. Best to bring sandwiches with you.

We'll end with drinks at a local pub
