Walking for Wellbeing – a stroll to Trow Point

Meet us at the Word for a gentle ramble down to the sea front.

Our route to Trow Point will take us by the edge of Westoe Cemetery and through the Bents Recreation Ground. We will then walk along the sea front past the amphitheatre before returning to the town centre via the South Marine Park.
