Local Walks & Coffee Mornings

Eaton Bishop Village “Walking for Health”


Village Walks: 

On the 14thApril, after weeks of overcast gloomy skies, the Spring sunshine at last appeared for a well-attended walk down to the dam and sculpture garden at Lane Head Farm.  Here we enjoyed a very interesting and amusing talk by Andrew on the excellent work which has been carried out over the past few years.  In an age where planning appears to extend only to short term considerations, it is pleasing to know that the landscape in our area, is being developed for the long term benefit of our environment and for future generations of village residents.   

The next walk is scheduled to take place on the 19thMay, 

Meeting at the Village Hall at 10:00hrs for a 10:15 start. This will be a river bank walk taking approximately 1.5 hours.  

Please keep an eye on the VH website for further details of the route.

Walk number 2


Based on the Walking for Health initiative, the second EB Village walk and coffee morning will take place on Saturday the 14th April. Meeting at the Village Hall at 10:00hrs for a 10:15 start.

The route of the walk, which will take approximately one hour, will be from the Hall following the footpaths down to the Lane Head Farm dam and park, where Andrew has kindly agreed to give a brief talk on the landscaping work that has been
undertaken.

Then returning, following the footpaths back to the Hall, where coffee and biscuits will be available.

On the “cross country” route back from Lane Head Farm, there are three stiles, and a steady uphill gradient. Walkers may, if they wish, return directly along the road back to the Hall.

It is likely to be wet and muddy so please wear appropriate footwear.

The walk will be taken at a slow enjoyable pace, and is not intended to be a forced march.
Note: When walking across farm land dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.

Any questions please contact Mick 01981 250461

1st VILLAGE WALK SATURDAY 17th MARCH

Based on the Walking for Health initiative, the first EB Village walk and coffee morning will take place on Saturday the 17th
March. Meeting at the Village Hall at 10:00hrs for a 10:15 start.

The route of our initial walk, which will take approximately one hour, will be from the Hall following the footpath down to
and around Honeymoor Common.  Then returning along the road back to the Hall where coffee and biscuits will be available.

On the route down to the common, there is just one low stile, at which point there is limited access for large dogs.  It is likely to be wet and muddy on the common so please wear appropriate footwear.  There is a steady upward gradient along the road from the common to hall.

The walk is definitely not intended to be a forced march, and it is hoped we will have our local resident experts, who can answer any questions about the recent conservation work and the flora and fauna to be found on the common.

Note: Except whilst on the common dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.


Report on our walk on 17th March

Four hardy souls braved a bitterly cold North East wind and the odd snow shower, to take part in the first EB Village walk on St Patricks day. 

Thanks to David Richards who gave a very interesting and informative talk on the conservation work, currently being carried out on Honeymoor and Littlemarsh Commons.  A future walk to Littlemarsh Common is planned, albeit later this year when the weather has warmed up a bit. 


Many hands make light work as the saying goes, so if you can spare the time volunteers are always welcome to assist with the many tasks necessary in keeping our Village Hall and Church afloat.
