Bristol

Walking South

What it is: Our walks tend to be shorter than the other Friday walking group's and we focus mainly on areas accessible to South Bristol. This includes areas to the West (such as Failand, Nailsea, Portbury), South (such as Bath, Pensford, Kelston) and East (such as Wick, Marshfield). The starting point is usually within 40 minutes drive from South Bristol. Here is a list of our previous walks.

When it is: We walk on alternate Fridays, dovetailing with the calendar of the other Bristol U3A walking group. That way keen walkers can walk with both groups.

Please scroll down to see dates and brief details of future walks.

Where it is: We meet at an agreed location, normally at 10.00 for a 10.15 start. Details for each walk are sent out by e-mail to members of the group about a week in advance and members can then contact the walk leader to book a place on that walk.

Most walks are circular, usually between 4 and 5 miles in length, although sometimes up to 6 miles, often with a pub or cafe at the end. Members can decide whether they feel comfortable stopping for food/drink or whether they would prefer to bring their own snack or go straight home after the walk.

Members of the group take turns to plan and lead the walks. There are about 65 members on the group's list. The average attendance on each walk is around 15.

Dates for your Diary (see below) show whether we have a walk leader and the probable area the walk will be in.
