Capability’s Overview 2013

A Walking Cave Man Highlighted Event

This years Capability's Overview challenge walk will be held on the 19th May. This event is held by the Sledmere Parish Council in association with the LDWA.

This is a unique opportunity to walk a route around the Sledmere area using paths not usually open to the public, by utilising private land opened up to the event by land owners. 

The route slightly differs from year to year dependent upon land cropping and stocking, therefore the map and GPX file below may change and should only be used as a reference guide.
