Ramblers stage evening walks to make most of long days
Bookmark and Share
The Ramblers has launched a programme of evening walks to make the most of the long evenings at this time of year.

With the longest day having just passed, the organisation is holding its annual festival of Summer Evening Walks, which vary from two or three miles to longer rambles of up to eight miles.

These include a chance to go walking over Tennyson Down with the Isle of Wight branch of the organisation, or along parts of the Cotswold and Windrush Ways with the Mid-Gloucestershire Ramblers.

Director of walking programmes Simon Barnett said these treks are designed for those who want to use the summer as a time to get into walking.

"By their nature evening walks are shorter, which also makes them perfect for newcomers," he remarked.

Waterproofs may be useful for those taking such walks in the current weather conditions.

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings in some areas for the next couple of days, but not only will waterproofs help people stay dry now; they will also be an investment for rainy days in the future.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801390984-ADNFCR
