A Winter Walk in East Somerset

28 Jan 2018 | Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire & North Somerset Groups

Walk from Nunney.

Fourteen walkers of fortitude and courage and one very well behaved dog turned up at the car park in Nunney in cloudy conditions with some drizzle.

An evening adventure out

26 Jun 2017 | Wiltshire, Gloucestershire & North Somerset Group

This event caught my eye on Saturday, a gathering to watch the Severn bore, something I'd seen before though not for several years, and something rather different and interesting to occupy my Sunday evening.

Kenny had asked people to congregate by the church at Minsterworth, and after a needless worry about perhaps not being able to park – after all Kenny had planned a sensible early rendezvous – Poppy and I managed to park in a layby all to ourselves (recced via streetview earlier in the day) and found our way to the meeting point....
