From the southern Cotswolds and the forest of Dean across the Wiltshire downs to the combes of the Mendips. An area intersected by the river Severn, the upper Thames and the Bristol Avon. The Kennet & Avon, Wilts & Berks and Cotswold canals pass through the area and includes the cities of Bristol, Bath, Gloucester and Swindon.
We generally walk on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. Sometimes we have joint walks with neighbouring GOC groups and during the summer months we have occasional weekday and evening events. The Events section below and the Walk Planner gives more information on dates and locations.
New to GOC or signed in as a Guest? If you have any questions about a walk, feel free to contact the local co-ordinators. Try two or three walks, and if you feel the GOC is for you, join up and get full membership benefits. For membership information and to join click here.
Already a GOC member? Just turn up on the day, we do not normally use attendee lists for individual events, unless the event leader requests one.
All members are welcome to lead a walk. It's a great way to introduce others to an area they may not be familiar with.
The co-ordinators are willing to support if you have not done this before and you are welcome to contact us should you have any questions, or just want to bounce an idea off us.
Aside from the walk itself, it's worth considering proximity to public transport and car parking, especially in popular spots where a car park can be empty at 9:30 and totally stuffed by 11:00
If planning a pub lunch, spare a thought for the sandwich brigade who may need shelter. Church doorways are good.
