Programme of activities

Throughout the year we undertake guided walks and visits, on the second Sunday of most months. All are welcome on the walks but for insurance reasons all participants must be members. Day membership of £1 per person is available on the day. Annual membership costs £5 per person or £8 for two people at the same address.

Some walks may be suitable for dogs, which must be on leads. Check with the organisers first.
For short reports and pictures of previous walks and visits hover over the "Activities" navigation button above left, and select your year of interest, or see the links to "walk reports" on our Newsletter page. Further pictures can be viewed on our Flickr site.
Meetings are held in local halls on weekday evenings with speakers on topics of local interest.
Venues: "Vowchurch Station" is on the site of the former Golden Valley Railway. From Vowchurch village centre, cross the river bridge then turn into the trackway after about 100 yards on the left
"Peterchurch car park" is in the centre of the village, turn down Church Road in front of the Boughton Arms. The car park is a short distance on the right, opposite the church.
