Trip Away - Wiltshire
Published: Saturday, 21 April 2018 10:02
When: 18th - 19th August
The group is headed to Warminster for a two day walking weekend in Wiltshire.
From a base in Warminster, walks will be organised on the Saturday and Sunday. This presents the option to stay overnight on Saturday (or longer) to enjoy both walks, although either may be done as an individual walk as we won't be too far away from home by car (or train). Anticipated walks are Westbury White Horse and the Imber Perimeter Path (about 11 miles and 1500'), and Stourhead to Shearwater via Longleat Forest (about 11 miles and 1200'). Details will be posted in the week before and routes may change due to weather forecast etc.
Otherwise, for anyone looking to stay over on Saturday night, you are free to book your own accommodation in the Warminster / Westbury area.
Trip Away - Lyme Regis, Dorset

When: 8th - 11th June
* This trip is now fully subscribed *
The group is headed to Lyme Regis for a long weekend in June. It's an opportunity to breathe some sea air, hunt for fossils, and enjoy a few miles of the south west coast path along the cliff tops and through the coastal woodland.
Led walks will take place on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. These will be Seatown and Golden Cap, Seaton to Lyme Regis via the Undercliffs National Nature Reserve, and (on the homeward journey) Maiden Castle/Hardy's Monument. Full details of the walks will be posted in the usual way in the days before the trip (when the weather forecast can be taken into account). Walks will operate in the normal way. Join the group walks or do your own thing!
In addition there will be a group meal (optional) at a local restaurant on the Saturday evening.
Otherwise all that's left is to book your own accommodation in the Lyme Regis area. It doesn't have to be in Lyme Regis itself though that might be preferable for the range of pubs and restaurants. There are no big hotels in the area, but the range of smaller hotels, B&Bs, and caravan sites should offer affordable options.
