What do I need to bring?

This walk is designed to be fairly easy-going, the ground being fairly flat and not too grueling. That said we would always strongly advise that all students/explorers be prepared and bring the following:

  • Walking boots / strong waterproof trainers 
  • A warm waterproof jacket or coat
  • Plenty of warm layers 
  • Trousers
  • A rucksack
  • At least two bottles of water 
  • Snacks 

We would also advise you to bring a small packed lunch, even if you plan on buying food in one of the local pubs. 

Hats, scarf and gloves, and an extra mac are also quite useful to have in your backpack. 

What's the Itinerary for the day?

The coaches will be leaving very strictly from the back of the Students' Union building at 9am. We're aiming to be back no later than 7pm. 

It's designed to be a fairly easy-going day, with no particular rush and plenty of breaks to accommodate a variety of walking abilities.
