Tonight we take a circular walk around the grounds of Temple Newsam as landscaped by Capability Brown. We'll be following the Temple Newsam Trailway, circling and with regular views of Temple Newsam House.
If we get very lucky, we may just be able to sit outside the Brown Cow for a drink at the end!
Distance: 4½ miles approx.
This event is free for members. If you book and then for any reason you can't make it please let us know so we can offer the place to someone else. Do not attend if you have virus symptoms.
We must all observe the social distancing regulations. Please do not book unless you are prepared to keep a two metre distance from other walkers. We are not requiring members to wear face coverings, but you are welcome to do so if that makes you feel more comfortable. We advise that you bring gloves and hand sanitiser. Do not share food or drink or equipment such as walking poles with other walkers outside your household or bubble.
