FREE Weekly Walks in June (Wed and Sat mornings)

Our popular and FREE Weekly Walks take place on most Wednesdays and Saturdays from April through to October. This year we are delighted to announce the addition of ‘Carvings’ at 10.40am to the regular offerings of ‘Embroideries’ and ‘Stained Glass’.

The ‘Stained Glass’ walk takes place at 11.10am followed by ‘Stone Carvings’ and ‘Embroideries’ at 11.40am. Lasting approximately 20 minutes a different theme is offered each month and no booking is required. Binoculars are useful and recommended for Stained Glass tours and essential for some of the carvings walks.
