Join us for a 5 mile guided walk near Tarvin, featuring the river Gowy.

You will encounter quite a good selection of stiles, wooden kissing gates, footbridges, fields of crops and meadows, and some rarely used footpaths; a working water mill and other surprises along the way.   You may spot a few animals, especially squirrels in the woods and may encounter some farm animals and horses.

Suitable footwear will be anything stout and flat soled, but boots will be best, and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts.

We will have a refreshments break half-way at the water mill which has an indoor café and shop, and toilets.  You can purchase refreshments here, or enjoy ‘bring your own’ refreshments at the picnic tables outside.

It will finish at the parking place early afternoon, about 1.30 pm.

See below for further details including how to book your place.
