Kettlesmith is a relatively new micro brewery on the southern edge of the town near the PO Sorting Office. We will finish up there at the end of our walk for a brief tour of the brewery to include tasting. They produce a wide variety of beers to suit all tastes and are continually experimenting with new flavours.

We will build up our thirst with an energetic Sunday morning walk going out to the west and south of BoA, across field paths and on country lanes.

If you wish to purchase some of their products, a 10% discount is offered and Antony will gladly deliver these back to the start point in time for our arrival.


Easy  – a mainly level, comfortably paced shorter walk (up to about 3 or 4 miles) with no stiles.
Moderate  – a longer, more challenging walk (up to about 7 miles), faster pace, with steps, steeper gradients and stiles.
Demanding – longer and more demanding than moderate, faster pace, requiring greater stamina; possibly more, steeper gradients. We would expect participants to be able to keep up with the pace set by the leader, it is a walk rather than an amble.


  • Walk duration times are a guide and the actual walks may be shorter or longer than advertised. The time stated is the length of time we will be out, including stops for refreshments and guided tours.
  • Walk leaders are in charge at all times. Their decision on participation is final and they may need to change a route due to local conditions or to adapt to changing circumstances. Should you wish to leave a walk the leader or backmarker should be informed & you will then be responsible for your own safety & wellbeing.
  • We welcome people with assistance dogs, otherwise we have a ‘no dogs’ policy.
  • Vulnerable people and U18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Every effort has been made to ensure that the information about each walk is correct and we reserve the right to make changes to or cancel walks should unforeseen circumstances arise.
  • Booking fees are non-refundable.


  • Please bear in mind that you are responsible for your own personal safety. Our leaders will have risk assessed every walk and will make you aware of any potential hazards at the start of the walk.
  • Please make sure you have the ability and stamina to complete a walk based on the information we have provided.
