Parish Council Footpath Walks

Parish Council Footpath Walks

The Parish Council organises a number of local walks (8 in 2015), partly to encourage residents to enjoy our lovely rural landscapes and partly to "beat the bounds" of these public footpaths. They start in May and the last one is in December.

Walkers ready to start the Burton and Prestwold Church walk on the 11th June 2015
