Please note the follwoing change to the meeting arrangements
An excursion to Cotswold Water Park is in the programme for Sunday 11th March. (Leader – Bill Nicoll telephone 01344 455403)
The original meeting arrangements have been changed due to lack of adequate parking at the original meeting point and active new gravel workings on two sides of Swillbrook Lake.
The revised meeting arrangements are as follows:
Meet at the Cotswold Water Park visitors’ centre 3 miles north-west of Cricklade (SU073971) at 08:30.
There are toilets and other facilities at the visitors’ centre that open at 08:30. There are no other facilities along the walk.
At about 08:45 we shall drive a short distance to Waterhay car park 3 miles west of Cricklade (SU060934) (where you could join the group if you wish). Our walk will start from there at 09:00. We shall walk east along the Thames path.
The excursion is planned to be morning only and we are likely to return to Waterhay CP by 1 o’clock, but the exact time depends on circumstances.
On a recent visit, the paths were quite muddy, so wear suitable footwear.
Lunch: A variety of snacks and light meals are available at the Cotswold WP visitors centre. There is a pub in nearby Ashton Keynes and several in Cricklade.
As always, it is best that you contact the leader (in this case contact Bill Nicoll, telephone 01344 455403) 2 or 3 days before the date just in case there are any changes or problems.
