These walks are and will be centred on the Roaches and will initially be of about 2 hours duration so that they could be done after work in the lighter months or as a quick work out in the winter. This will give you plenty of time to visit the pub or tea rooms to chill out after your exertions. More walks will be added in due course. This page gives you a quick overview, click on the link to get a detailed description with pictures.
