    Annual 'Beat the Bounds' Walk - May 12th

    Meet on Saturday May 12th 8.30 am in front of the pub. Following an Ashbury tradition that is over 500 years old, on May the 12th we’ll be having our annual ‘Beat the Bounds’ walk. Historically used to confirm the boundaries of the parish, we take a more relaxed view these days and don’t quite do the entire boundary. Everyone is welcome, including children and dogs, and although the entire walk is about 12 miles you can come for as little or as much of the walk as you like. More info at or call Steve Treadwell on 710369. Come and explore the parish with lovely views of the vale and downs that you will only ever experience on foot.
