A Quaker Walk
Sunday, 29 July 2018
Start time: 10:00
Moderate 7 miles / 11.3 km
In the middle of the 17th century, Dolgellau was home to a flourishing Quaker community. But when the monarchy was restored in 1661, the Quakers were seen as radicals and a danger to society. Many left for America but a Quaker community survived here until about 1850. Their story is reflected in some of the buildings and remains which we will pass on this walk. This attractive route follows tracks and lanes through woodland and across open fields.
The walk is suitable for reasonably fit adults and older children; children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Participants should be suitably clothed for the weather, wearing or bringing a waterproof jacket. Strong shoes or preferably walking boots are a must. You should bring drinking water, a snack and a picnic lunch. This walk is not suitable for dogs.
