The route of a previous Darwin Walk event

A long-established walking event will return to Lichfield this weekend.

The Darwin Walk takes place on Sunday (25th July), setting off from 10am at Bunkers Hill car park near the skatepark at Beacon Park.

A spokesperson said:

“Lockdown has provided the chance to revise the route to avoid the worst of new  developments.

“The route will take us past Curborough Hall Farm where teas, coffees and cakes may be bought.

“The approximately seven mile walk pays homage to Erasmus Darwin.”

  1. The worst of the new developments? Snobbish comments from people who don’t remember when Boley Park was mainly farming fields. Expanding populations means more houses. I hope it rains all day on Sunday.

  2. Boley park, cathedral view, roman heights… they’re all awful and not excused by ‘expanding population’.
