Cwmpengraig near Drefch Felindre

23 May 2017 | West Wales Group

I have never known so many people assemble for a walk so early!!ICould it have been the coffee and biccies available at Neil H's from 1 hour before the start of the walk???!!Some of us turned up at Neil's about 30 minutes before the start, thinking we were quite early, but obviously NOT as most on this walk beat us to it!!!

So now I know, all I need is a packet of hobnobs the next time I want people to turn up super duper early!!!

This was an excellent turn out of 16 and Neil H, made us most welcome before and after the walk....

The Cotswolds at its Best.

20 May 2017 | South Midlands Group

Sunday 14th May. There are many advantages to being in the Cotswolds, sharing and enjoying it amongst 17 friends and a beautiful shaggy dog comes as close to perfection as one can imagine. Some came from as far as Chester, Leicester and Cardiff, (thanks fellas). These events are an opportunity to catch up on news with old friends and also meet a diverse set of new ones. This walk was no exception.

There are two main routes up the mountain, one from the South from Ledard by Loch Ard and the other from the north starting from the shores of Loch Achray. This was our route and 11 of us met on sunny Sunday morning to walk the mountain....

Dorset Group: Golden Cap/Symondsbury 14/05/2017

20 May 2017 | Dorset Group

It was an uncertain start: Dorset GOC don't often visit the far west of our county - a long journey for most of us. But the sun shone throughout the day, and a lucky 13 of us started by tackling the small but distinctive peak of Colmer's Hill, where we were rewarded with great views.

We then headed south over acres of bluebells in order to walk arguably the most dramatic few miles of the Jurassic Coast. From the high point of Thorncombe Beacon we descended to the beach at Seatown for picnics, which gave us enough energy to climb to the top of Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast....
