SWITCH II - Meeting up, walking and reviewing
Immediately prior to completing the highly succesful first SWITCH walk between Melbourne and Burton, we repaired to the Burton Bridge Inn to discuss doing it again. There were five of us on this first walk and would like to encourage more to join us. The initial suggestion was Hallon (Halesowen to Longbridge) https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Hallon/3533
It's a route I've looked at and think has the potential to be a really nice walk, particularly having done other walks in the area. Halesowen is a half hour bus ride from Birmingham New Street (the number 9 runs every ten minutes) and Longbridge is a 20 minute train ride (4 trains an hour) so it's all easy to get to.
This morning, having looked at my "to do" list of Slow Ways (surely we all have them!) I stumbled upon Wincre (Winsford to Crewe) https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Wincre/3233 Crewe is one of the best connected stations in the rail network and Winsford has a station too. I'd like to add that as a possible walk. It was suggested we plan this a couple of months in advance so anyone arriving from further afield can get advance train tickets, and adopt a "hell or high water" approach to the arrangements to not muck anyone around. We're open to any other suggestions but here are two to get the ball rolling. Thoughts?
