Sunday 10 June
Coach Trip to Swanage

Roger will organise the trip which starts with a a coach journey to Norden – a “Park & Ride” station for the Swanage Railway close to Corfe village. We will then ride by train to Swanage where we will walk back to Norden mainly via an east-west ridge (hopefully giving good views north and south, e.g. of Poole Bay, a walk of about 8.5 – 9 miles. We will then return by coach stopping en route at an hotel restaurant for a Sunday roast.

The cost will be £35 pp, which covers the coach, one-way train fare and main course. Please send your bookings to Roger, including a £5 deposit.

A dessert costs £5 extra but time constraints may preclude this option; a decision will be made on the day. Please let me know if your dietary requirement precludes a roast.

Options for those who do not wish to do the walk are a day at Swanage with a return 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.
