An exciting opportunity to link up with the West Coast and explore part of the St James walkway. We will be walking for around 5 hours, so please keep this in mind when you register for the programme. The hut we will visit is probably going to depend on the weather, but will be either Magdalen hut or Cannibal Gorge hut.

Chill out day

If you came away with us tramping, you will probably be wanting some rest. On our Chill Out day that is exactly what you will get, we will hangout in the office, put a movie on and play some games of table tennis and pool. We will also head out for some cruisy activities in the park to enjoy some nice winter sunlight (fingers crossed).
