Walk Leader

Michele Facer lives in Midhurst and is passionate about walking, so much so, she has recently published a beautiful book called “Circular Walks Around Midhurst”. She particularly enjoys long walks, which is why her book includes so many options to extend routes. In summer, Michele will often up and out at sunrise and happily complete a 20km walk before breakfast! You can find out more about Michele and her book on her website www.findingfootpaths.com
