The walk is approx 3hrs long.Bus transfer to walk and back to the Roundwood Parish Hall. You will need to pre-register for the walk. Please email with the name(s) and a contact phone number to save your place(s) on the walk.

  1. Historical Ramble through Roundwood Village

This walk, led again by Martin Timmons local historian and member of the Roundwood Historical and Folklore Society, will be a gentle-paced ramble in and around the village that will give you the opportunity to hear a little more about the history and lore associated with some familiar local landmarks. This year, Martin will focus on a different area of the village so if you went on this walk last year you’ll learn more again this year.

  1. Wild Child Walk

A great choice for a ramble with the kids. This walk will be based around the ‘small pond’ and will have plenty of time to spot any interesting wild-life. Bring along a jar with a lid to help examine the bugs and the beasties. Part of the walk is on an off-road trail, is not well suited for buggies and will need sturdy footwear for both adults and kids. Children must be accompanied by their parents/guardians on this walk.
