Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

Twenty years ago, the newly formed South Wales GOC Group tentatively stepped out on their first walk - to climb Sugar Loaf hill, which dominates the Abergavenny skyline - and to mark the occasion, Peter, the original walk leader, will lead an 8 mile walk to the summit, which is just under 2,000 feet high.  Ascending around 1,700 feet, the walk scenery includes open moorland with extensive views and sheltered wooded valleys, and the terrain is tracks and good paths that may be muddy in places.  Waterproofs, warm clothing, and suitable footwear essential.

Please bring a packed lunch and a suitable supply of fluids - remember it will be cold this time of year.

Celebratory refreshments will be supplied by the walk leader, Peter.
