We normally meet at the start of a walk. If you do not have transport, please contact the leader, who may be able to arrange a lift or advise on public transport. If you are intending to use public transport, it is important to check all train and/or bus times before travelling. We usually have a lunch stop near a pub, where food may be available, but most people bring their own lunch. Many pubs are closing these days, and pub stops mentioned in the programme may not be available at the time of the walk. Do ring leaders for details of the second half of figure-of-eight walks.
