We gather for our morning walks by the Sandhurst Memorial car park (from 9:15a.m. for a 9:30a.m. start) every Monday to Friday. We walk for about half an hour until we reach the gate at Blackwater train station and then after a short breather, we turn and walk back along the river as depicted by the large white line. The walk is not a race and if anyone is not able to reach the end goal, then no pressure will be made for those to do so. We have sufficient walk leaders to be able to walk with the fast walkers, the intermediate walkers and the slow walkers. The aim is to enjoy the walk, whilst also gaining a level of fitness, the emphasis is on being comfortable with the speed and distance one wishes to walk. The river is an ideal walk route as you can see by the photographs taken by our walkers (see "Gallery" from menu at the left). Not only are the views wonderful, but the friendly banter and welcome given to each walker is something we pride ourselves in. We walk in all weathers, so ask that our walkers wear the appropriate footwear.
When the weather is really bad and the walk is considered too muddy or too wet, then there is an alternative walk. This takes us through the Sandhurst Memorial car park to the crossing on Yorktown Road. We walk up Brookside to Wellington Road - we have to remind walkers not to cross at this point, but to walk right and cross opposite the Snaprails entrance. The walk continues through Snaprails and depending on the weather, will either take a right to the underpass and beyond, or straight through to the woods via Abingdon Road
