The Beauchamp House walks are cancelled until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Group of older people walking in rural setting

This circular, mainly off-road route runs alongside the River Chelmer and passes through some of the most beautiful parts of the river and open fields, where you may see horses roaming freely. 

There are some inclines and uneven ground as it is mainly off-road, making this medium intensity route unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggies. However, there are plenty of places to rest and enjoy the view. 

Toilets at the Beauchamp surgery are currently unavailable.

Please note that, for each walk, a specific route has been agreed and risk assessed to provide the safest walking environment possible. This cannot be changed.
