Beating the Bounds
May 19, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm| Free
Beating the Bounds is an ancient custom where members of the community walk around the outskirts of town, usually led by the Mayor and Town Councillors, to familiarise themselves with the town boundaries.
Starting from the B&M car park at 10.30am the walk is approximately 11 miles and is well supported by the Town Council with a traditional bumping of the Mayor on the milestone. Please note parking in B&M is now limited to 2 hours, please find alternative parking (parking is free on Sundays in the main town car parks).
Lunch is taken at Treworgey Manor, a car will be available to transport lunches.
Everyone is welcome to join in and participants do not have to complete the whole walk. Dogs on leads are welcome at the responsibility of the owner, don’t forget sun cream, suitable clothing and stout footwear as some of the paths can be muddy.
