Part 1 of a two part walk: consquently the walk will be fast paced and will only have a couple of short breaks. You must be able to walk at the set pace or the whole schedule falls apart & there's not a lot of daylight to play with.
If you're looking for an amble to wear the Christmas excesses off or are new to the group and aren't sure about pace, come on the afternoon walk instead.
Expect wet, rough paths in places and come equppied for the weather. Strongly suggest food you can eat quickly or on the move!
