We belong to the U3A Walking Group and, whenever possible,
we join with about 15 - 20 others each Thursday for a walk of between 5 - 8 miles.
We tramp resolutely through the beautiful countryside surrounding Devizes -
though not always through fields of rape where it is difficult to see even our heads!!
