WALKS INTO HISTORY
This group is for all who enjoy researching the history of local areas, sharing others’ research, and/or walking the routes discovered, to see the features for themselves.
For the past three years many of us have been part of the TVN Historic Pathways Project. Although that Project is now complete, we have had so much pleasure exploring and walking locally, that we thought we would create our own Wokingham group, “Walks into History” and welcome any new members who would like to join us.
We meet once a month, alternating planning meetings, (when we discuss future activities, and share the fruits of our research), with local walks led by our own members. Walks already completed include Finchampstead, Broadmoor, Swallowfield, Shiplake, Ufton Nervet , Silchester and Hurst, and these may well be repeated. In the planning system are walks in Binfield, and London.
Most of our walks are around 4 to 5 miles, usually in the morning, finishing at a pub. Some members prefer a shorter walk, and a sub-group started in February with the aim of scheduling some additional shorter walks – around 1 to 3 miles. To keep happy those who prefer an even longer walk, this year we have two walks of 7 to 8 miles. These will be all planned to hopefully give everyone some variety in the length of walk that they can handle, throughout the year.
If you have any interest in what we plan please contact the convenor; our planning meetings are held at St Sebastian’s Pavilion, Nine Mile Ride, RG40 3XA. Walks will be organised on the in between months on a day to suit the organisers.

I look forward to meeting you.
