Over the Hill walkers, Windsor Great Park

Clare Balding walks with the 'Over the Hill' club, a group of veteran hockey players who get together once a year to explore a new route.

This series is themed 'Ramblings Revisited' as Clare Balding walks again with some of her favourite and most memorable guests.

In the spring of 2006, Clare went rambling with a female hockey team who had been walking together for 15 years. In this time they'd developed enduring friendships on as well as off the pitch.

Now, eight years on - and with most of the original walkers now retired - Clare is going back to catch up with the 'Over the Hill' club. The group started-up after an advertisement was placed on the hockey club wall; it stipulated that the requirements of those attending were 'A sense of humour, walking boots or strong shoes, haversack, waterproof clothing and approximately £65 plus beer and lunch money'.

The group walk in a different location each time they gather, this week they'll be in Windsor Great Park.

Producer: Karen Gregor.
