Memory Lane Events


Further information about the now legendary Memory Lane Guided Walks

The walks, described below, usually take place in the Spring, start at 11.00am and are a gentle stroll which will take around 2 hours.  The cost of joining a walk per person just £5.00 for a Memory Lane subscriber, £7.00 otherwise. The Walks take place regardless of the weather. But if the success of most previous Memory Lane walks is repeated, it will be a lovely Spring  or Autumn day in the convivial company of fellow enthusiasts.
