Walk for April

Sunday, 22 April 9.30 : CIRCULAR WALK FROM  RADSTOCK TO WELLOW

This is walk is just under  11 miles in length and commences from the free car park opposite the Museum in Radstock.  The walk will take the route of the cycle path to Wellow stopping halfway at a little coffee shop shed for a refreshment if desired.  Members can leave the walk at this point and visit an ancient long barrow and then backtrack to Radstock – approximately 4 miles – if they prefer a shorter walk.   Those wishing to continue will carry on to the beautiful village of Wellow from where we climb up to a trail passing a site of a Roman Villa.  On the trail we will enjoy views of the beautiful fields that surround Wellow.   We will continue across an old air field used during the war, down to some interesting and loved fishing lakes, before emerging back at Radstock.  For those interested in flying, we will pass a hanger containing locally owned aeroplanes.

The walk should be completed in under 4 hours.  There is one main hill  and the route is mostly on dry ground apart from a few sticky parts in places.  Level/moderate.  Parking:   Free Car Park, Waterloo Road, Radstock.  Nearest postcode:  BA3 3EP

Completed walks

 Sunday, 25th February:  Midsomer Norton to Buckland Dinham:  Sunshine never fails to lift the spirits and when the spirits are lifted, a group of walkers will enjoy and make light of  any walk.  This was the case this morning.   This nine mile walk along the cycle path was completed in well under three hours.

Friday, 29th December:  Buckland Dinham.   Well, despite the awakening to wind and heavy rain early on this morning, we were treated to sunshine and clear blue skies as the morning progressed.  The going across footpaths and bridle paths  was not as wet as suspected, and the views were greatly enjoyed.  Mince pies and drinks were appreciated at the end of a 3 hour walk of some 7 miles.  Well done to the those that joined me.

Sunday, 12 November:  Hill Deverill.   Though we had sunshine, a fresh breeze and a minimal amount of rain and the going quite wet in places, I think those that joined me this morning will agree it was a testing yet hugely enjoyable walk with fabulous panoramic views.  Well done to everyone.
