Fancy going for a Big Roman Walk?

bigromanwalk1A RANGE of walks has been lined up as part of Big Roman Week 2013.

In all but one of the cases, you can just turn up – there will be no need to book. But check individual listings below.

On longer walks, we’re arranging transport back to the starting venue. Please note there may be a wait if we can have to organise two or three return journeys, depending on the amount of people needing free travel. Transport is subject to availability.

Walkers should wear appropriate clothing and shoes and be ready for a turn in the weather. Children are welcome but should be supervised by an adult.
