About the event

 Several benches have been installed around Burley over the past few of years.  Sites have been chosen maybe because of the view, as a natural resting spot on a walk or in memory of a special person.  More often than not because of all three.  The walk visits 12 such benches. There will be chance to hear the story behind each bench and find out about local people who are no longer with us, some well-known others less so. The route heads up Hag Farm Road then touches the lower edge of Burley Moor on the way to Stead. We will have a lunch stop here, with drinks are available at the farm. The final part of the walk visits Sun Lane Nature Reserve and Leatherbank before returning to the village.  There is one stile.  Remember to   bring a picnic and something to drink.

Cost:  Free – bring money for drinks

Booking:  Required – limit on numbers (28)
