We have a varied and interesting walking programme which takes us to most parts of Somerset, with an occasional foray into Wiltshire. We are very fortunate in having such a good variety of walking within easy travelling distance of Wells. We regularly walk in the West & East Mendip Hills and on the Somerset Levels with longer trips to the Quantocks, South Somerset and Wiltshire.

We walk between 4.5 and 7 miles and vary the days of our walks to enable our members to enjoy some walking in between their other regular weekly commitments. We generally walk in the mornings and finish with a convivial lunch at a village hostelry. Our walk leaders do a great job in thoroughly researching their walks and through them we have learned so much about our local history, archaeology, flora and fauna.

The walking programme is set 3-6 months in advance.
