South Gwent Ramblers' very own luxury coach
Sunday 10 June
Coach Trip to Swanage
Roger has organised a coach trip to Swanage, The trip comprises a coach journey to Norden – a “Park & Ride” station for the Swanage Railway close to Corfe village. We then ride by train to Swanage. Long walkers walk back to Norden mainly via an east-west ridge (hopefully giving good views north and south, e.g. of Poole Bay), a distance of about 8.5 to 9 miles. Derek will organise a short walk - details to come.
Options for those who do not wish to do either walk are a day at Swanage returning by train or open-top bus to Corfe with a short walk to Norden, or a Swanage and Corfe Castle visit, using the train or bus: Roger will print off a few copies of the train timetable. We then return by coach stopping en route at a hotel-restaurant for a Sunday roast.
The cost is £35pp which covers the coach, one-way train fare and a main course. A dessert costs £5 extra but time constraints may preclude this option; a decision will be made on the day. Please let Roger know if your dietary requirement precludes a roast. Send your booking to Roger, including a £5 deposit.
