Loggerheads, Blore, Hales, Bishop & Burnt Woods  - led by Malcolm Monie     

Meet at Sherry Mill Hill at 10am to car share

The walk covers about 7 miles of attractive rolling countrysidejust over the Staffordshire border. Starting from the car park at The Loggerheads at about 10.30am, early in the walk we will look across to the site of the Battle of Blore Heath which in 1459 was the first major battle of the Wars of the Roses. [Read more] A section of easy walking follows on quiet lanes and private roads including a distant glimpse of the Wrekin. A gentle ascent takes us to the northern part of Bishops Wood past the site of an Iron Age hillfort. Unfortunately it is hidden by dense tree and shrub cover.  [Read more] We return to Loggerheads via a meander through Burnt Wood followed by  refreshments at The Loggerheads.

Christmas local - led by Gerald Moss

This will be a short walk of approximately 4 miles returning to Whitchurch in time for travelling to the Walkers Christmas lunch [pre-booked] at The Castle, Bletchley [1pm].

Whitchurch Walkers were formed in 1976 by a group of local people interested in walking and the protection of local footpaths. Whilst the group is not overly large it is well supported and holds one half day Saturday afternoon ramble and one all day Sunday ramble per month throughout the year plus a number of mid week-walks. The Saturday and mid-week walks are normally between 4 and 6 miles and the Sunday walks between 8 to 11 miles.

The Whitchurch Walkers are organised by a committee (listed below) that meets in the Black Bear, High Street, Whitchurch on the last Tuesday of each month except for December and March, which  is reserved for the Annual General Meeting. Every 6 months a new programme is produced and published giving details of the walks planned for the next 6 months.

Our current subscriptions, renewable in March of each year, are:

            Adults                                                                   5.00
            Children  
(under 16, accompanied by an adult)    Free
            Affiliates (Societies, Councils etc)                        5.00
            Life membership                                                   50.00

New subscriptions taken out between October and February will run for 13 -18 months.

We are always keen to recruit new committee members and/or walk l eaders.  Anybody interested is welcome to attend any of our meetings or contact us through the 'contact us' page of this web site.
