Thursday, 28th June 2018   PARKHALL COUNTRY PARK EVENING WALK    4 miles  2 hrs   Grade 2
Start Time: 6:30pm    Grid Ref: SJ930447. From Meir, follow the A520 towards Western Coyney. Turn left at traffic lights onto Parkhall Road, signposted Parkhall Country Park. Continue along Parkhall Road, turning right onto Hulme Road, again signposted Parkhall Country Park. Continue along this road, ignore the first car park. Turn right into The Gulch car park (also signposted visitors centre on a separate sign on the other side of the road - this was covered with a car tyre when I did the recce!) Continue along here until you reach the main car park (which is by a children's play area).
Parkhall Country Park is a nature reserve and the site of a disused quarry. We will walk around the park, and venture up to the "summit" where there are nice views. The walk takes us through woods, around several lakes and across parkland.

Points to Remember:
1. Please call the walk leader before the walk in case any details have changed.
2. Make sure that you are suitably dressed for the weather. Remember that some walks are on exposed high land and the weather can be cold and wet. Denim jeans are not suitable for high-level walks.
3. Dogs are welcome but only with the prior agreement of the walk leader
4. If the walk leader decides to shorten the walk then that decision is final and is not open to negotiation. The leader will only do this when there is a good reason for doing so.
5. Even if a walk does not state packed lunch, it is always advisable to bring something to eat and drink.
6. If transport is shared, please provide the driver with a share of the fuel costs.
7. Non RA members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before being asked to join the RA. There are no exceptions to this.
8. Regrettably, due to the nature of the Sunday programme, we are unable to accept children on our these walks.
9. Children are welcome on Family Friendly walks.
