Forthcoming guided walks around Reepham for autumn 2013

So much lies hidden beneath the woods and fields we are familiar with – the remains of deserted villages, mills, prehistoric burial mounds, even a Roman road! A short series of guided walks along the paths, tracks and minor roads around Reepham will point out where some of these monuments once stood and try to explain how we can study the ancient landscape.

All walks are free of charge and open to everyone. Stout shoes and waterproofs essential. Unless the weather is really bad, ‘the show will go on’ for anyone who is interested. If you would like to come or would like more information, please phone or email Imogen and Trevor Ashwin (01603 870523; footpaths@world-tree.co.uk) so that we know how many people are likely to attend.
