Clare Walkers was formed in spring 2016 when Clare Castle Country Park Trust received a grant from Suffolk Community Foundation to establish a set of six walking routes together with leaflets and maps.
Clare Walkers consists of:
Derek Blake, Richard Smith, Mary Tweed, Trevor Pickerin, Geoffrey Bray, Carl & Sharon Benson, Keith Brown, Malcolm Smith, Chris Hawkins, Steve Wilson, Peter Phillips (in no particular order)
Each of the six circular walks was walked, mapped, photographed and researched by members. Matt Lovejoy of Everything Orange designed all the materials, including the large scale maps erected in the Park.
Clare Walkers has since established a programme of monthly walks, has established partnerships with the Ramblers, Nordic Walking East Anglia and OneLifeSuffolk, has Co-ordinated Clare’s accreditation to Walkers are Welcome and has 7 walks entered into the Suffolk Walking Festival 2018.
