Reclaim The Night

Join Rural Strides on a 3.5 mile walk to Reclaim The Night!

Too many long, cold, dark nights are spent indoors, when it is perfectly possible to be outside enjoying the night sky and stillness of darkness. Why not add a little adventure to your weekend plans by joining us for this short, evening walk. Just one day after January’s full Wolf Moon, Orion the Hunter is also a constant companion in the Northern Hemisphere night sky. It is one of the easiest constellations to spot thanks to its distinctive Orion’s Belt

Providing there is no cloud cover (always a gamble) Older Hill should provide the perfect place for some amateur star-gazing. However, this walk is also about taking us out of our comfort zone and into the woods/across the common after darkness. The route is short and mostly easy underfoot but there are a couple of short, muddy sections. For convenience, at a little over 3 miles, it is perfectly possible to do this walk in wellie boots. A torch of some description will be a necessity.

No dogs please on this walk.

The event is finished.
