Walking in Somer Valley and beyond
Based in the Somer Valley, our area stretches from the Mendip Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the west to the foothills of the City of Bath in the east. We are therefore ideally positioned to walk in the beautiful Mendips, Cotswolds and Wiltshire Downs.
Our walks are suitable for a wide range of walkers. They range in distance from six to ten miles. We walk on both weekdays and weekends at a normal pace. The walks are well balanced between exploring the local countryside and walking sections of the many named long distance and recreational paths that criss-cross our area.
We are developing a new circular local walk for the enjoyment of exploring our local area, which will be known as The Radstock Ring.
Our walking community
We believe walking is a great way to get outdoors, make new friends and boost your health and happiness. You are 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.
If you wish to improve your fitness levels in a relaxed group or 'walk and talk' you are most welcome. We always give time to enjoy and admire the views we gain from walking in our surrounding countryside and afterwards, on weekdays, seek out local coffee shops for cake and a chat. Sometimes we gather in the evenings for the traditional west country game of 'skittles'.
