Group name: Wiltshire Wanderers
This group is a part of Wiltshire & Swindon Area.
Our activities include:
Groups aimed at people in their 20s and 30s, Groups aimed at people in their 40s
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
We are a walking group that covers Wiltshire and the immediate surrounding counties, for people roughly between the ages of about 20 and 50. We cater for all abilities of walkers with walks graded from easy to strenuous. The latter don't involve hikes up big mountains as there aren't many of them in Wiltshire! They are often just of a longer distance. We offer 2 to 3 walks a month ranging from 5 to 14 miles in length, usually take place on a Sunday, and starting at around 10 to 10.30am. In the summer we also offer shorter evening walks often with a pub meal at the end. On most walks there is the option of a stop at a country pub or tea shop on route or at the end, sometimes with a meal. Otherwise please bring a packed lunch and a drink. If anybody has problems in getting to the start of walks we have members who are happy to share lifts.
We have about 30 members in the group and about another 20 from other groups that walk with us regularly, and we have an average of about 10 people out on every walk. We also go on long weekends away in the warmer months, either camping, in bunkhouses or B&B's, to places like Cornwall, Wales, the Lake District for both hiking and sightseeing.
