At the end of the walk, there is the opportunity to put your own message on a candle bag, which will shine in the grounds of the Hospice. The circular walk is open to all, including children and even the dog!

Families walking

Part of the walk will be through fields and could be muddy so sensible footwear should be worn. There are also hilly sections. We regret that due to the terrain the route is NOT suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. You can view the route map here.
