Courses / walks – “Catch the Spirit” 2013

A series of slow walks at various venues around the Broads with the opportunity to stop, wonder, reflect and possibly respond to the peace, beauty and natural ‘magic’ of Britain’s Magical Waterland. All led by Broads Chaplain and biologist Briant Smith. Most of the walks involve easy walking but with various underfoot conditions. The trip on the Albion is not a walk but an opportunity to experience the ‘Spirit of the Broads’ aboard this ancient wherry. The short walks at Ranworth and at the Trinity Broads are all on road or board walks and suitable for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility. All walks are suitable for 8 year olds +.
