Art Hike 34: Marsden Round Walk

When: Saturday 29 July 2017

Time: 10:00 for a prompt 10:30 start

Meeting point: Marsden Train Station Car Park.

Description of the Hike

A beautiful and varied 7k (aprox 4.5 miles) hike that takes in gentle river walks, steep inclines to the top of the moors and easy going pathways that look over this stunning landscape. We will explore an old quarry to find a number of Simon Arbitrages’ Stanza Stones before heading off to an ancient trading post on Pule Hill and back down to Marsden with some amazing ariel views of the town and its interesting architectural layout.

One or two of the slopes are quite steep with shale from the rock faces so we need to be sure of our footing – Sturdy Footwear is essential.

In the true spirit of trading we have set the theme of one of the art activities as “the gift of giving” and we ask you to bring something small and inexpensive that has meaning to you that you can share with a fellow Art Hiker.

This is a great opportunity to say Adios to Art Hike co-founder Adele Jackson as she heads off to adventures in far off places – exciting stuff and Adele will tell you more on the day.

What to wear: We’re hoping for nice weather, however be prepared, it could be unsettled. We would recommend that you bring waterproofs, and warm clothes (hat, scarf, gloves) if the weather is poor. Sturdy footwear is essential. If you are responsible for others please ensure that they are suitably dressed.

Dogs Welcome

What to bring: Lunch & refreshments, water and money.

Please note: You will be solely responsible for your own safety and transport arrangements. We accept no responsibility for any loss, injury or illness as a result of joining the hike. Robin and Adele are both trained in first aid and will carry a first aid kit.
