This is much more than a walk! Enjoy a very special half-day town tour and lace-making experience.

The walk takes the form of a circuit, starting and finishing at the Two Brewers pub.  It passes many beautiful buildings and brings with it intriguing stories: of lace-making, brewing and a shrivelled mummified hand!  We pass a mansion where gin is distilled in the garage, the home of the original Sandhurst and the former home of a famous female horror-story authoress. Then, the route circles back via the park, the splendid suspension bridge and All Saints parish church before returning back to the pub, to have afternoon tea and a lesson in bobbin lace-making.

Additional information

A cream tea and hot drink is included in the walk fee, at the end of the walk.

Terrain info: This walk goes through the town, so is mostly on pavements and concreted paths.
