What to expect on the day 

Both short and long walks explore the beautiful park together, past the mansion, war memorial and pond, with the longer route  splitting away towards the end of the short route and looping the park twice. The short walk is paved and accessible to wheelchairs and buggies, with the longer route continuing around the wilderness pond and wooded areas. There are some hills in the park, so it may not be appropriate for all wheelchair users. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

All routes will start and finish at the north-east corner of Christchurch Park, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Amongst the excitement, take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.

There is no parking available at the park, please use local public transport where possible, with the bus station  a 1km from the park. Local pay and display car parks are also available.
