Heading Out

WI for the Modern Woman

Welcome to the Walking Group – Heading Out!


We’re back in person!

We meet at 10 am on the third Monday of each month and all TBBWI members are welcome to join us.

We explore footpaths in and around Brentwood and walks are usually about 3 to 5 miles long and occasionally we like to venture further afield.  Where possible, we stop for a coffee afterwards. We can’t promise there won’t be a bit of mud along the way so suitable footwear is a must and we’re not put off by a shower or two!

In July we combine our walk with a summer picnic.

Our Next Walk

Our next walk is being organised and details will be mailed out nearer the time.

Previous Walks


In January we enjoyed exploring The Olympic Park in Stratford. We were able to walk on paths and avoid any mud.

A fabulous summer in 2018

After months of trudging through mud earlier in the year, we have enjoyed some beautiful summer walks across some very dry land.

Summer walk and picnic.

Protected against the blazing July sun in hats and sunscreen, nine ladies walked from Mountnessing Windmill to Ingatestone Hall and back before retreating to the shade for our annual picnic.

What a scorcher!

June 2018 – Greenwich Walk

In June we went on an evening walk in Greenwich to complete the sculpture walk,

The Line, that we had started last year. At the end of the walk we had cocktails overlooking the 02.

Lots of buttercups! A walk in May 2018

Recently we enjoyed the stunning shades of Autumn in South Weald Park followed by a drink in the Visitor Centre.







It was a scorcher of a day when the walking group headed out recently and so we kept to the woods for some much welcome shade.


Summer Evening Walk from Olympic Park,  Stratford. 

We plan to walk the Northern section of The Line, the contemporary art trail following the line of the meridian. The proposed date for this walk is Monday, 24th July. Details will be sent to walking group members and announced at the next meeting.

We did a beautiful walk through the bluebells in South Weald Park in April.










We visited Thames Chase in Upminster in March and had a lovely walk.







February Walk

We had a fun walk in Norsey Woods, Billericay and are looking forward to visiting the woods again when it’s less muddy and the bluebells are in flower.
