Jan and I moved to Parcent in 2006. We choose this area because the Jalon Valley is well known as a popular walking area.
We walked with a variety of different groups to gain a knowledge of the walks available, including the first U3A walking group
In October 2015 we formed our own U3A walking group. We wanted to create a friendly local group to explore some of the many great walks within half an hour of Jalon. That group became the current Monday Ramblers, who offer day walks of 4-6 hours each week.
We now want to create a similar group, but for those members who would prefer shorter and easier walks. This group will meet each Thursday to explore the Jalon Valley and surrounding area. The aim is easy walking on relatively good paths and tracks.
Most walks will start from Jalon, Alcalali, Parcent, Lliber or Murla. Each will start at 1000 and should last about three hours. This is not a hill walking group and we will try to avoid difficult terrain and scrambling.
The aim is to create a friendly group who meet regularly to enjoy the lovely surroundings we are fortunate to live in. When possible we will visit a local bar at the end of the walk for refreshments.
