Continuing my series of walks outside our county, this walk is on the Wiltshire-Somerset border. We'll start at the car park near King Alfred's Tower, then walk into Stourton, before striking out to climb Whitesheet Hill (the easy way). We'll then walk to Cold Kitchen Hill via "The Park" gliding club. Turning west we will head for a pub stop in Maiden Bradley via Brimsdown Hill. Maiden Bradley is a good point to drop out if you only want to do a shorter (12.5mi) walk. You should be able to easily get a taxi back to the start. The second half of the walk (or, more accurately, roughly the last two fifths) is mostly in woodland. Gare Hill is the last major hill, then we ridge-walk in cool forest back to Alfred's Tower. For interest, the total ascent on this walk is 2300ft. We will have a lunch stop somewhere between Whitesheet and The Park (about 6 miles in). We will also have a shorter snack stop on Gare Hill (about 15 miles in). Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty of water, you will need it!
: King Alfred's Tower car park
: Take the Stourhead exit from the A303, then turn right (Kilmington, Maiden Bradley, Stourhead). Alfred's tower is signposted left after Stourhead House.

5 days (Monday to Friday) away, in a lovely coattage (http://www.booking.com/Share-Hwkn6M) nestled in the Brecon Beacons just when the autumn colours are starting to really kick off. We will be doing routes of the newly re-established heritage route ‘The St Thomas Way’ which has been re-imagined as a series of short circular walks. (More info at Thomasway.ac.uk) the routes we have an option of tackling are Patrishow, Abergavenny, Raglan, Usk, Longtown and Hereford - there may also be a chance of doing two in one day depending on weather and speed and for those who fancy something longer the Brecons have many walks on offer. The weather has been extremely mild in October the last few years but rain and cold is always a possibility, the walks on the way are mainly short however and there’s the roaring fire to return to. Cost for the week will be £536 divided between how many of us there are which is up to 10 (12 if we have couples/ people willing to share) a deposit of £30 is needed to confirm your place. Please contact me for payment details. This walk has been advertised to other young ramblers groups too, so maybe a chance to meet other like-minded people from around the country.

This new year is a big one! The committee invites you to come and see out the decade and welcome in the 20's with us.
