Walking in South Somerset and beyond
Our walking group not only in Somerset but also in Dorset, on the Mendips and Quantocks. We try to stick to less than one hours’ drive from Yeovil.
We walk on Thursdays and Sundays. Thursday walks start in the morning and the aim is to finish by lunchtime, often at a pub. They will generally be between 4 and 6 miles. On some Thursdays there will be a choice of 2 walks, of different lengths.
Sunday walks are all day walks so a picnic is required as you’ll certainly work up an appetite. The length of these walks varies with an average distance of 12 miles in the summer and less in the winter. These walks are done at a faster pace than the Thursday walks.
On all walks be prepared for all types of terrain. In the winter there will be plenty of mud and wet ground to get stuck into so walking boots are more than essential!
Our friendly walking community
We are a friendly group and welcome visitors and new members.
We have a range of walks which should suit walkers of different fitness levels.
We try to give details as to the type of walk – flat, hilly etc – so that you know what to expect, but if in any doubt as to the suitability of the walk please contact the walk leader. Their phone number is included in the walk details.
Dogs that are well behaved and under control are welcome on our walks unless the walk leader states otherwise in the walk description. If in doubt, please contact the walk leader beforehand. We look forward to walking with you soon.
