The Hempnall Group of Parishes have put together a splendid little publication titled “Let’s Walk”. This little book of walks is the outcome of many miles covered by a number of members. The first walk produced describes a circuit of the whole group of eight churches. This demanding walk encompasses 17 miles in its entirety. From that follows eight circular walks which can easily fit into a leisurely afternoon’s stroll and can also incorporate a visit to the named church. For those inclined to a slightly longer walk there are church walks taking about half a day or a bit more if you want to explore the churches and have a relaxed picnic. This publication is available for purchase in all 8 churches of the Hempnall group, Hempnall butchers, Goodies Farm Shop (Long Stratton), Every Days a Picnic (Hedenham) and Woodton Stores at a small charge of £2.
“Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail, “there’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail…” (Lewis Carroll)
