Join us for a circular walk with a difference – using the train journey for part of the circle. Our walk starts at Chappel and Wakes Colne Railway station. Free car parking is available at the station. We will then catch the 09:54 train which arrives in Bures at 10.00 am. (Please purchase your ticket from the guard on the train). Our led walk from Bures back to Chappel goes through Bures which is holding its regular monthly Bures Market on the Common Land that day. We plan to allow 15 minutes there for browsing or the purchase of refreshments. Then, leaving at 10.20 am we continue our walk. We walk on public footpaths through the scenic countryside, with views across the Stour valley. Arriving back in Chappel there is the opportunity to take refreshments in the Station Café, on the platform if weather permits or in the vintage railway carriage. Show your train ticket to receive a discount on your hot drink.
The East Anglian Railway Museum is holding its annual Steam Gala that day so why not finish off the day admiring the impressive home collection of steam engines and the many special attractions there (Tickets available separately).
