Welcome to the Castle Bromwich group. We cover the north of Solihull Borough and part of North Warwickshire and adjoining areas.
We hold walks on most Sundays, usually 6 - 8 miles long across the Midlands and within an hour or so of travelling from Castle Bromwich. From May to August, we also hold local weekly Wednesday evening walks of about 4 miles. From September to April, we hold local monthly Tuesday morning walks of about 4 miles, often followed by an optional pub or cafe meal.
There’s plenty of variety on our walks, with some leisurely or moderate, some fairly level, while others present a bit more of a challenge with some hilly section. We car share to walks, although some people make their own way to the start. Please bring a packed lunch and drink as you’ll certainly work up an appetite.
We hold two long weekend walking holidays each year, examples in recent years have been in Scarborough, the Wye Valley and Torbay.
Come and join us
As a new member you will be made to feel very welcome. You will be able to enjoy the benefits of walking - good for our mental and physical health, explore the countryside, meet other people and have a laugh. Most walks are followed by a stop in a pub or café where we can take our boots off and enjoy a chat.
You can join us for three Sunday walks of your choice, after which we would ask you to become a member. If you want to know more about membership, please get in touch.
As well as walks we arrange social events throughout the year, such as Christmas Meal, fun quiz nights and a canal cruise. A number of members also form friendships that extend to social activities outside the Group.
