Somerset is a beautiful, rural county of rolling hills in the southwest of England bordered by Bristol and Bath to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the southeast, Devon to the southwest and bounded by the Bristol Channel to the west. For people who want to get outdoors, you can take in the delights of the Blackdown, Mendip, Polden and Quantock hills, the Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land comprising the Somerset Levels.
The Somerset Group offers a series of walks on the fourth Sunday of the month of about seven miles taking under three hours. For ease of access, walks usually start within access of public transport and with sufficient parking for people arriving by car. Walkers should always carry food and drink for the coffee and lunch breaks on the route. There should be a further opportunity for socialising at the end of each walk.
New members are always welcome. If you would like more information and talk about our activities, please feel free to make contact by telephone or the form at the foot of this page. Joining a new group can sometimes seem a little daunting but we will try to put you at your ease. If you’re worried about not keeping up or an event too strenuous, you should know that no one is ever left behind. If you need to take a rest or retrace your steps, you won’t have to do this alone.
As the volunteer group co-ordinator, I’m depending on local members coming forward with details of possible events and I’m looking for practical advice on local publicity to stir up a bit of interest in our activities. I look forward to hearing from you with your suggestions.
