From the southern Cotswolds and the forest of Dean across the Wiltshire downs to the Mendip combes. Crossed by the rivers Severn, upper Thames and Bristol Avon, this area includes Bristol, Bath, Gloucester and Swindon. The Kennet & Avon, Wilts & Berks and Cotswold canals all pass through. Picture: The river Avon from Dundas aquaduct.

Our main focus are the monthly walks. These range from roughly 5-10 miles over varying terrain dependant on the time of year and the walk leaders' preference.  Scroll down for future event listings and past event reports.

We aim to walk on the 1st Sunday of each month. Sometimes having joint walks with neighbouring GOC groups, occasional evening and midweek events.

  • A variety of leaders with different interests helps to keep the group fresh and alive.
