Exploring Cranfield – part 1, to the East (Sat. 19-10-2013)

Posted on Updated on

Exploring Cranfield – part 1 is a walk from Cranfield walking down into Marsden Vale to the East and back along the ridge. Besides taking in some quite beautiful lovely country views along the way, we can as well get to know some local industrial, social and geological history. Let’s walk around Cranfield and get to know the place where we live!

Paul, who is going to lead this walk, is an experienced and keen rambler from Cranfield Village. He has kindly lead quite a few walks in and out Cranfield last year, and he is going to lead a few walks this year too.
