Walks

Many of the Forum's member societies organise guided, heritage walks in their area. Normally, each spring, the Forum publishes a booklet listing all the walks then known about for the forthcoming year. Unfortunately, walks were suspended during the Covid-19 lockdown and no booklet was produced for 2021/22.
Following the Government announcement of a "roadmap" to take the country back to normality, some members have planned - at least provisionally - walks for later in 2021 and into 2022. We list below those we know about.
Contact the organiser for information on any restrictions, bookings and joining details.
