    Capel Cake Walk

    Sunday 9th June

    Distance 17 miles, Circular Grade Strenuous Start Time 10:00 Host Andy S Start Location RH5 4NX

    Meeting point: Fourwents Pond Car Park at Holmwood Common

    Organiser contact:


This walk will have a stop in the afternoon in the village of Capel where we will stop for tea and cake at the Church.  Before this we will be stopping for lunch so please bring a packed lunch. There will also be a pub stop for drinks only shortly after the lunch stop.

The carpark is a reasonable size, and there is a second carpark at the other side of the lake should the main one be full up. The carpark is free of charge. 

This walk may involve walking through fields of cattle, which wasn't a problem when it was walked out. However I just wanted to make any one who gets nervous in such situations aware.

About our walks

Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.

All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.

Please remember

  • Bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions.
  • Bring something to drink, even if the walk has a pub stop. On most full day walks you'll need to bring a picnic lunch. The walk details will show this.
  • If you wish to bring your dog on a walk, you must ask the walk leader in advance as some walks are not suitable for dogs.
  • Please arrive early so that the walk can start on time. We'll wait up to 10 minutes if you let us know you've been delayed en-route.

All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
