Guided Walk – 3rd March

Walking along Bind Lane and the Jack Mytton Way to explore the history and archaeology of New England and Bind Brook, with tales of vanished communities, a scandalous politician, mines and railways and medieval monks. Meet outside the Cape of Good Hope for a 2.00pm start. The walk involves some short steep hills where care is needed and is likely to be muddy; boots or wellingtons are strongly advised. (By parking a car at the turn to Rays Farm on the Main Road to Cleobury it is possible to avoid the more challenging sections). No charge, but donations to the church welcome!
