This is a 4 mile circular walk designed for new walkers or the not so fit it is easy paced flat walk starting at 2-30 p.m with a local meeting point at Preston Park Station at 2-00 p.m. I have been told that there is a definite need for short walks but to date there has been little support. Therefore this is the testing time either use it or lose it.
