This club was established in December 2005 and the first walk took place in January 2006. Walks take place on weekdays but if there is sufficient interest, there will be occasional Saturday walks. Each walk will have an experienced leader, who will decide the “where, when and length “of the particular walk

May Away Days
From 3rd to 6th the Ramblers enjoyed 4 walks on Exmoor in magnificent weather. 27 of us assembled in Dunster a delightful medieval town overlooked by an imposing castle.
The first afternoon warm up was a 5 mile hike from the town and up onto the surrounding hills. Wednesday took us on to Exmoor and we ascended to its highest point, although an even steeper climb faced us on the return journey. This was led by Davis and Jane Gibson. The Rocks took us on a very scenic walk on the Thursday commencing in Bossington and taking us up to the top of the ridge and then down into Selworthy with its many orange thatched cottages maintained my the National Trust. Not everyone was able to stay for the final walk on Friday led by Tim and jenny Clements. This was a gentle but long walk around the Quantocks enjoyed by all participants.
Our especial thanks go to John and Judith for this very special and enjoyable few days.
Clear your diaries because our June walk promises to be the “high “ point of the year.
Stephen Gardner will lead us on a 9 mile walk in the Carmarthen Fans including a circuit of BOTH Llyn y Fan Fach and Llyn y Fan Fawr along a spectacular ridge with sweeping views over the lakes. This is an area that has been described as the last wilderness in South Wales, and one that the walking group has been considering for sometime.
Though the walk will probably take us about 6 hours it is along good paths over gently undulating terrain but with two climbs.
The walk will be on Tuesday 21st June, meeting at 8.45am on the Lower Green or at 10.15am on the the side of the road leading to Trecastle above Dan yr Ogaf (more details to follow).
Please bring a packed lunch.
