Wednesday A Long Melford

August 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Gillian will lead  a 12 mile walk (8+4) starting from Long Melford Church Green.  This is CO10 9DJ.   The grass area is accessed up the little road going north past the Black Lion hotel towards the church.  There are toilets on the green.

We shall take off towards Bridge Street, then fly over Kiln Farm, circling through Stanstead, and refuel for lunch in Glemsford (please see catering details below).   Then after lunch we shall taxi down to the Stour Valley Path.   There is quite a lot of shade on this walk which I think is one of the very best in Suffolk.  Well worth the 1 hour drive from Cambridge to Long Melford.

LUNCH:   pubs in Glemsford have closed and now the only one functioning is the Black Lion which will open specially for us at lunchtime IF there are enough of us prepared to have lunch there.  So please do patronise the pub for lunch if you are coming.   If the pub decides it isn’t worth opening we shall have to rethink the walk!    PLEASE NOTE the pub asks for orders in advance, so please get in touch with Gillian by close of play on MONDAY 12th to access the menu and order your choice.   gillianiperkins@gmail.com  the menu has burgers, sandwiches, paninis, sharing platters, lasagne, but no soup!

Phone number for lunch, and on the day, 07903 998727
