Trail Walk 2018 - The Wyche Way
Following the successful trail walks of the Herefordshire Trail and the Cotswold Way which ran in 2015, 2016 and 2017, Heather & Derek have been planning the chosen Trail walk for 2018 - The Wyche Way.
This 80 mile trail commences at Kington and finishes at Broadway Tower. There will be 7 sections, one a month, between March and September/October. Each walk will be between 10-12 miles with one section of 14miles.
To support the organisation of these walks bus transports will be provided. The meeting point will be the Worcester Countryside Centre for sections 1-3 & 6-7. For sections 4&5 it will be Malvern. All start times will be 09:00 and the estimated return time will be 17:00-17:30.
We are trying to gauge the level of interest to determine the size of coach. If you are interested we would appreciate if you could forward your details to Heather Fraser (details on contact list) by 30th November 2017
