Accessibility
This walk isn’t accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
BUT with a slight detour it could be. The route goes through Watts Wood however it is possible to go along the road and join at the start of the Mardyke Way which is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
Please note:
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes, especially unsupervised.
