Our leaders offer a choice of walks. The easy walk is in Abbeyfield Park itself, on mainly level paths and there are plenty of benches available for rest stops if needed. This small but lovely heritage park is home to a unique collection of trees including the wonderful ghost birch. Link to book about Abbeyfield Park trees Our longer walk lasts approximately an hour and explores nearby heritage woodland and other local green spaces. 

After the walk everyone gathers in Abbeyfield House to enjoy tea, biscuits and conversation.
