The final part of the walk is through a wood that is full of Blackberry bushes, so if people would like to pick the berries they will need something to collect them in and some gloves.

The Blackberry bushes have also made the path a bit overgrown, so you may wish to cover your legs & arms for this part of the walk.

The plan is to eat in The Elephant at approx. 15:00, we have not booked a table, so people may wish to book a table for lunch.

We could also visit Greyhound in Whitchurch (16:30 to 17:00). Ferryboat closed at 15:00.
