They walk on the first and third Fridays of each month.The idea is to do the same walk from Endcliffe Park entrance to the cafe at Forge Dam - about four miles in total - and talk about books, films, the environment or whatever crops up. Actually, they rarely discuss politics, it is a social group, and the walk is incidental, although the scenery along the river is delightful.Walkers should wear suitable clothing and understand that they take part at their own risk. After a stop at the cafe, return is usually by 1pm.
