Ledbury & District

Walking Group 1

We walk in the mornings of the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, meeting at Homebase at 9.20am and leaving promptly at 9.30am.

The lovely summer weather has enabled us to do some beautiful walks which have made up for all the disappointments of the dreary winter weather. In August We went from Fownhope on a very hot day, along the lane towards Capler Camp and then returning along the banks of the river Wye. The ground was baked hard and field paths like concrete, very different from the sticky mud of winter.

Later in August our walk was around Colwall. This was a new aspect for most of us and we passed typical English cottages and gardens as well as having good views. We ended with a visit to a lovely coffee shop in Colwall which was very welcome.

The most recent walk started at West Malvern with a steady climb up on to the Malvern ridge. After the initial climb the walk was more enjoyable than arduous, we completed a lap of North Hill before descending to the Sugar Loaf Café for coffee and a natter. The views were stupendous with striking contrasts between Malvern town to the east and the rolling hills of Herefordshire to the west.

This is a very sociable group and we walk at a steady pace for about 2 hours, generally 4 - 5 miles. Some walks start from Homebase but we also travel up to 30 minutes away by car for a variety of walks. We take it in turns to lead walks.

We are now at full capacity so we are not able to take new members.
