Event Description

Join me for a family-friendly and dog-friendly walk through the Dummer Down fields! Open to all walkers that will be comfortable with a few hills, but I would recommend no really young children so that we keep to a decent pace for everyone.

We'll meet at the carpark and then we have an easy 5 mile walk (~ 2 hours) that gives us a mix of wide open fields and rolling hill landscapes (see photos), bringing us back into a loop.

Things to note:

1. A good pair of worn-in hiking boots as the terrain is a bit uneven and there are moments when the ground is slanted; walking trainers/sandals won't provide enough ankle support.

2. Plan for the weather: Suncream/hat/sunglasses for sunny days and raincoat for the drizzly days. LOTS OF WATER TOO!! We will continue even if the weather is a bit patchy. If it is raining heavily (or has been in the days leading up to the walk I'll cancel as some patches won't be safe if slippery and there is alternative to them).

3. I would recommend long trousers/leggings for this walk as some parts of the route are a little overgrown and we want to minimise nettle stings and bug bites where possible.

4. The starting point isn't that easy to get to if you don't drive. I'm not aware of any bus routes that run down the lane. I would recommend car sharing where possible! If concerned, pop a comment up and we can see who is en route.
