Welcome to the Dorset 4050 Walkers group. Despite our group name, we really don’t mind what age you are!
If you like walking with a welcoming, relaxed, easy going group of people who occasionally socialise, why not give us a try - we encourage people to join us on a walk to see if the group is for them before making any commitment to us or the Ramblers.
Our aim is to provide a wide range of walks, at various grades and ranging between 8 and 15 miles in length. Typically, we'll walk at a moderate, sometimes brisk pace. We walk just about every weekend, usually on a Sunday and usually (but not always!) somewhere in Dorset. We also arrange a number of walking weekends throughout the year away from Dorset.
Events in 2024
Porlock Walking Experience: Thursday 4th July - Sunday 7th July 2024. This will be our sixth walking holiday based in Porlock and enjoying Exmoor. Those who already know the area will be aware of its beautiful terrain, offering rugged walks of the moor, picturesque woodland and river stretches and the contrast of the coastline - and the South West Coast path of course.
Once again, we have planned this walking holiday to coincide with the Porlock Weir Fest, a local beer/cider/music event - perfect for those who have some energy left at the end of the day!
We have 4 days of varied walking planned starting on Thursday 4th July, through to Sunday 7th July 2024. Full details of each walk will be posted here as separate walk entries by the end of December 2023 and you'll be able to book on to any or all of the walks. As usual, priority will be given to Dorset 4050 members.
Accommodation needs to be booked independently - we advise doing this early, as Porlock is a popular holiday area at this time year.
