A lot of people who go on walks with the Ramblers don't realise how much preparation goes in to providing a walk. It's a fundamental tenet of walk leading that you always "walk-out" the route to be taken a week or two before, to check for diversions, possible dangers etc. Whilst we were walking in Bedfordshire, Michael Way was busy in the Chilterns. He sent us this report...
"Sunday March 7th. Walked out the excellent route planned for our annual hike with the London Blind Ramblers Club on March 29th starting from Chorleywood Station at 10.30. It is 7 miles with nice pub stop."
"This is certainly one of my favourites – through Chenies, along the river Chess, up to Sarratt bottom, them back across to Chorleywood Common. It was cold and bright today. I do hope Hampstead Ramblers will come along for a special and rewarding day. Michael Way"
The pace will be slow, but it should be a special and rewarding day. If you are free, do come along. The idea is to have one sighted walker for every blind walker. You can read more about the Blind Ramblers club here.
