Walking Treasure Hunt
Mike Dunsbee has come up with this brilliant local walking treasure hunt.
The walk is mainly on the lanes with one small hardened gravel pathway, so
taking a pram or pushchair would be no problem.
The hunt will take around 1hour and cover around 1.5 miles.
Ideal for all the family!
