Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
With the clocks changing next week it's nearly too late for the long walks. So one last long one, with an early start and a brisk pace to make sure we finish before dark!

This is a long walk with no easy bailouts. It'll need to be done fast to finish in the light so please be sure you're capable of the distance before coming out.
Gaiters would be an advantage because the ground is very soggy in places and some of the walk is off path (note if the weather is really wet we'll do an alternative of similar distance from same start).
Bring a torch just in case we miss the target time.
