NATIONAL TRUST (ACT) HERITAGE WALKS
Please note that we are monitoring the health advice on the Covid-19 virus situation and will notify people when we are able to resume Walks..
Here’s a new Heritage Walks Newsletter for April 2020 with some new DIY walks for you.
You can get some ideas for do-it-yourself walks with a heritage flavour in our March Heritage Walks newsletter:
If you wish to receive the monthly Heritage Walks Newsletter, write to email@example.com and we will put you on the list.
Heritage Walks are open to all so please let people know about walks that may be of interest to them. Walks are usually held on the fourth Sunday of the month. Walks will commence at 9.30 am from the meeting point set out under each walk and will last between 1 ½ to 2 hours. Numbers are limited and bookings are essential. See each walk for link to the booking site. Please read the Guidelines for Walkers before booking.
Walks are generally between 2 and 4 kilometres and have reasonably frequent stops but walkers should be able to keep up with the group so as not to inconvenience others.
Note: For the comfort and safety of other walkers, we do not allow dogs on our walks.
Guidelines for Walkers
Before booking for a Heritage Walk you should read the walk description and consider whether the walk is within your capabilities. In making this assessment you should make enquiries via firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information. You must register through the walk booking website for each walk you wish to attend and pay the appropriate fee. By registering you confirm that you have read the disclaimer below and understand your personal responsibilities when joining a National Trust (ACT) Heritage Walk. Walks will commence promptly at the advertised time, and as a courtesy to other walkers and the walk leader, you should plan to arrive and park 10 minutes earlier.
