Wednesday B All-Day walk – Ashdon, Essex
September 8 @ 10:15 am - 3:00 pm
Walk length: 7.5 miles
Meeting point and car parking: From Cambridge, take the A1307 south towards Haverhill. Soon after Linton, turn right towards Bartlow. At the crossroads in Bartlow village turn right towards Ashdon. On entering Ashdon, take the left hand fork at the Rose & Crown pub onto Radwinter Road. Passing the Baptist Chapel (CB10 2EX) on the left, the Chapel car park is another 100 metres on the right (CB10 2ET; Grid Reference TL588419). Please park furthest away from the entrance. We suggest £1 per car as a donation to the Chapel.
Group size: maximum of 12 people
Walk details: Two stiles in total. The walk will head towards Bartlow where the group will stop for lunch. There will be an opportunity to see the 15th Century wall paintings in St Mary’s Church, Bartlow. In the afternoon we will walk past the Bartlow Hills, a Roman tumuli cemetery. Three of originally seven barrows remain and the tallest, at 15 metres high, is the largest Roman barrow north of the Alps.
Lunch arrangements: Although there is a pub at Bartlow – The Three Hills – www.thethreehills.co.uk – I would suggest, for this time, to bring a picnic lunch to have in the Churchyard.
To book: Anyone wishing to join this walk should contact Sue at email@example.com before the end of Monday 6th September. Tel – 01223 843428
