Dawdles Bench Walk Trial

Location: Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria, CA17 4QN

Date: 23 January 2020

Opening Times: Meet at The Cloisters 10:30am

This is something new in conjunction with Nateby and Wharton WI.  We are going to make up a trial walk linking as many benches as possible in Kirkby Stephen as part of a project to introduce bench walks for those less able but still want to be out and meeting people.  Optional refreshments after the walk. 

We will go whatever the weather - please wear suitable clothing and footwear for the day – we will adapt walks when essential.  All these routes are on tarmac or hard surfaced paths.  DAWDLES Walk plus has an additional activity or interest during the walk.

All walks should take about an hour unless otherwise stated - DAWDLES Walk Little extra/Extra are longer and likely to be more strenuous or taken at a quicker pace.  Where there is a car share, allow for extra time to reach destinations and return.

Everyone welcome, suggested donation £1 per walk towards expenses.   We usually find optional refreshments after our walk
