W25: Sunday Lunch Walk (new)
Leave Lidl car park 9.00am. Start White Swan Gilling West 9.15am. 8 miles. Easy / Moderate. £7.
Our now traditional end-of-Festival Sunday Lunch Walk will again be centred around The White Swan at Gilling West but will this time take a new figure-of-eight route via Skeeby to return us to our starting point. We start with a very pleasant stroll alongside Skeeby Beck. If we are lucky we may see a Kingfisher. Through the little village of Skeeby, we take field paths and vehicle tracks with excellent long-distance views on both sides to Brompton Bridge. Crossing the beck we head back to Skeeby then to Gilling by a different route in time for lunch at The White Swan. The walk is on generally easy gradients, but may be muddy in places and there are a few stiles.
T10: Exploring Richmond
Meet outside the Town Hall at 12.00 noon. Free, but donations to the Richmond Mayor’s Charities most welcome.
Your costumed guide, a Richmond policeman of 1842, takes you for a walk back in time. Lasts just over an hour.
