During the walk, one of our resident photographers, Josie will be teaching about photography and the tips and tricks for taking a great picture. Bring your camera, any camera will do, even the ones on your phone.

If anyone wants to be a model, and is comfortable being in front of the camera feel free to dress up a bit and come along…what better surroundings than the castle where Henry VIII stayed!

The walk will be 8km long, finishing with a picnic in the park so if everyone brings along some food we can share it around. Bring lots of water!
