FROME & DISTRICT PROBUS WALK

Dear Members

FROME & DISTRICT PROBUS WALK

Steeple Ashton / with Pub lunch, The Longs at Steeple Ashton

Tuesday 7th June 202210.30 am prompt start for long walk – 11.30am start for short walk

We start and finish both walks at the Longs at Steeple Ashton (BA14 6EU) – there is parking alongside the Inn as well as on the road outside.

Please note:  This will be a ‘pre lockdown style’ walk whereby there is no need to pre order lunch until just before we set off on the morning of the walk.  However, we will retain the ‘booking system’ to give an idea of numbers for the long and the short walks – so please reply to indicate attendance.  Just no lunch choice until the day of the walk. 

Arnold has alerted the Longs to our plans and searched out the route for the longer walk.  This is an easy ramble with no steep climbs nor difficult styles.  It passes through open, arable countryside and gives fine views towards Salisbury Plain.  The short walk will be about 1 hour of easy walking led by John Hedges.  Both groups will aim to arrive back at the Longs before 1.00pm.

Special notice for the short walkers from John: ‘We’ll be walking towards a natural meadow, that is being protected by the village, where we shall be able to sit for a few minutes and enjoy (hopefully) sunny weather.  The path is fairly level but occasionally uneven – then over fields a bit muddy.  Maybe bring a stick and change of shoes for the pub.’

 See you at the walk
