Walks used to feature regularly in our events programme but sadly we have only managed one (socially distanced) group walk since the first lockdown in March.
However, during the summer months when members were able to exercise, many went for walks on their own or in couples and we compared notes via a series of “Armchair Walking” Zoom meetings.
In normal times, our walks are usually held once a month and are arranged by individual members of the club. All that needs to be done is to pick a route and add the details to the website events details page.
The distance of the walk is your choice and can be short or long. We've previously walked locally as well as further afield in Wales. Usually, a picnic or pub lunch along the route is included, so this is a good incentive to get your walking boots on! Once details are published, members will contact you if they wish to participate.
Cherhill (the between lockdowns walk)
A small group of us started from Smallgrain carpark for a 6.5-mile circular walk via Morgan’s Hill eastward along the Roman road then ascending up to the Cherhill monument where we enjoyed our picnics sheltered from wind by the monument base. We returned via Calstone Wellington with a view of the White Horse en-route. It was great to catch-up with friends we may not have seen in person for a while and being out in the countryside.
We look forward to hopefully being able to hold walking events again later in the year.
