Quiz Night Walk in Bath led by Teresa & Sue
Tonight we are meeting at 7pm by the umbrella installation on Brunel Square by the Bath Spa Railway Station. This is approximately a two hour walk with a quiz allowing plenty of time for photographic opportunities that takes you from the urban centre of Bath to the peaceful countryside. There is one hill (Widcombe Hill) towards the beginning of the walk but the rest is a gentle stroll!!!! Anyone wishing to join us but would rather not do the walk, we will be finishing at the Graze Bar on Brunel Square where we started the walk. Avon Street car park is probably the nearest and most affordable, charges apply util 8pm I believe, please check. Any queries please contact Teresa on 07741 493348.
