Walk and Talk

21–25 September 2020 (Mon–Fri)

Do join us for the last 2020 Walk and Talk week. Come and savour the Autumn delights of God’s creation in North Devon – a wonderful mixture of dramatic coastline, wooded combes, remote moorland and river valleys. To begin the day, there will be half an hour of worship (with a Bible reflection) before breakfast after which we offer a choice of walks.

The long walks will vary between 10-12 miles and leave at 9.45 am. The medium walk (7-9 miles) and the shorter walk (5-6 miles) leave a little later in the morning. You will need good walking footwear, appropriate clothing (including rain gear), a small rucksack, refillable water bottle and sandwich box for your packed lunch. It may be necessary to share lifts on some days to reach the start point.

It always feels like coming home.
