The walks are at a relaxed pace and routes mainly involve canal towpath and lane walking but may involve stiles. Stout outdoor shoes or walking shoes/boots are recommended. Ample car parking is available in the Acton village car park. All are welcome, including dogs on leads. Donations are gratefully received. 

All walks start from St Mary’s Church, Acton at 1pm (please meet for 12.45pm at the Church), and for those who wish to indulge in cake and a drink, walkers will be back in time to visit the Acton Church ‘Tea at the Tower’ community café. 

The future dates for the walks are: this Sunday 11th September, Sunday 9th October (please note this change of date), Sunday 6th November, Sunday 4th December, Sunday 8th January 2023, and Sunday 5th February.

If you wish to join us, please be there for 12.45 for a prompt 1pm start. If arriving by car, please park in the village car park. Dogs on leads are welcome but they must be able to negotiate or to be carried over the stiles.”
