Meet/Park: 10.00am on the corner of The Glebe and Anchor Road next to Calne Recreation Ground. Park in The Glebe, (on the left as you approach Anchor Road) opposite the tennis courts: space may be limited so do carshare as much as possible. There is a car park at the far end of Anchor Road (which we will walk past) but there are charges.

Distance: just under 4 miles

Terrain: a gentle, varied circular ramble with a mix of countryside and town and a steady incline.

History of the Walking Group

Thanks to Ray Ward who started the group almost 10 years ago, and to he and David Bodman who have organised so many walks over the years.

We continue to meet once a month for walks which are always followed by a fabulous pub lunch. Walks vary, usually between 4 – 7 miles, and we pace ourselves to suit the slowest walker, with time to enjoy the views. New members are always welcome!
