These walks are all weather dependent. Bring sandwiches for our summer season.
3rd June Ann Rowland will lead a circular walk from Peter Tavy. Ann says it is actually more of an oval. 3-4 miles
10th June David will lead an open moor walk in the Wistman’s Wood area, and on to Crocken Tor if wished.
17th June Brian is planning a walk in the Bellever Tor area.
24th June Annual Cream Tea Walk at Bude. David, who has been busy on your behalf this month, has planned a different walk this year with wide cliff top views. The most IMPORTANT thing is that the Amblers let me know as soon as possible whether you plan to be on the Bude Cream Tea Walk. For Newcomers to this annual walk, the Weir “bistro” offers tea, coffee etc, with fabulous scones but there are also cakes biscuits, you just order whatever you want.
3rd June Mary and Steve have been hot on the trail of the Peregrine Falcons in Plym woods. They report “we did a recce this afternoon – there are 4 peregrine chicks and they are starting to learn to fly but will be at the nest for another 4 weeks or so. The wardens were very informative and helpful, and suggested we arrive around lunchtime for the best chance of activity, so we’ll do the walk with that in mind. There are 2 telescopes for public use but we suggest people bring binoculars if they have them, and there is also a collecting tin for entirely optional donations.”
10th June I will take you to Huntington Cross, and H. Warren farm and the Keeble Martin Chapel. Parking in the layby near Cross Furzes SX 700:666
17th June David and Liz hope to be able to do the Mothercombe walk that they planned a week or so ago but this time starting on the coast road just beyond Noss Mayo to avoid the £5 parking charge at the beach car park. The route would follow the inland part of the walk initially and the coastal part at the end.
24th June Annual Cream Tea Walk – I think we could all lead a Bude walk by now! I was there last weekend. We could go right down onto the Bude beach though the tide may be too high to go along the breakwater, before walking down to Widemouth and cutting back inland. I will go again to check the timings so we don’t miss out on scone time. Explorers – please let me know whether you plan to be on this walk.
