Walk & Location Information

The Walk: Just 2.9 miles the walk is predominantly flat with one moderate gradient and a few stiles. It has some good country views and passes beside a lovely mill pond. However, it is not suitable for buggies.
The Venue: An old favourite with quizwalkers the Red Lion serves real ale (e.g. Doombar, Southwold bitter) and has a pub garden with a good number of tables. Roasts (sourced from fresh produce) cost around 12 and there are home-made desserts, too. Booking is advised as they can get very busy on Sundays - ring 01737 843336.
Child-friendly and dog-friendly. Website: http://www.redlionbetchworth.co.uk
