Swanton Abbott Walking Club

On the first Sunday of every month a group of villagers set off from the Village sign for a 5 mile trek based around a local hostelry.

Usually between 8-12 walkers attend and the club is always ready to welcome new people.

Typically we start the walk from the village sign at 10:30am but if we are starting from elsewhere we pick up from the village sign 10-15mins earlier. The next dates are: 1st July, 5th Aug & 9th Sept
