Ramblers invite to get walking

Barnstaple walk to inspire people to get trekking.

NORTH Devon Ramblers are urging people to lace up their boots and get yomping at a special walking event being held in Barnstaple on Sunday.

The two-and-a-half-mile walk starts at the Heritage Centre on the Strand at 11am and is open to all ages and abilities.

The two-hour route will take participants through the historical part of Pilton and explore some of countryside beyond, returning to the start point by about 1pm.

The free event is being held as part of the Ramblers’ annual Get Walking Day, held to inspire people to discover the joys and benefits of a good walk.
