Area name: Avon
This Area covers most of the former County of Avon, which was abolished in 1996 and replaced by four unitary authorities.
Our areas help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Areas help look after paths and green spaces, open up new places to explore and act as the leading voice on walking matters near you. They also support our local groups to 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.
Walks listed in the sidebar include entries for all of our groups apart from Bath and Brunel - please visit their websites to see their walks.
Members of the Avon Area also contribute to the Wessex Wanderer Railway Walks which start from stations along the Bristol to Weymouth line.
We organise two walks a week on a Sunday. One will be 5-6 miles long, the other between 8-10 miles.
