Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and North Somerset

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.

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 events 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.

All members are welcome to lead a walk or run an event.

  • I will willingly support potential leaders, so feel free to make contact with any questions, ideas or suggestions. Even if you are unable to carry it forward, maybe I know someone who can.
  • A variety of leaders with different interests helps to keep the group alive and fresh.
  • Outdoor themed events such as trade shows or exhibitions add variety and interest.
  • It's our group, now make it yours.
