The Historic Back Lanes of Baldock @ Meet outside the Community Centre
May 7 @ 10:15 am

Meet outside Community Centre, Simpson Drive, 10.15am for 10.30 start (NB: This is a morning walk)

Jane Havercroft will take you on a 2 hour, 1.5 mile stroll around the back lanes and footpaths in the town centre to discover their history. All on tarmac so accessible to most mobility scooters; possibly too much traffic for small children and dogs. This popular walk was sold out last year so it has been decided to repeat it to give those who missed it a chance to take part this year.

Also on Sunday 6th and 13th May
