About Us

Hello – if you’re New this is For You!

Wondering what Brunel Walking Group is all about?

Brunel is a thriving group with over 400 members. Our focus is on walking (obviously!) but we also put on lots of social events, including regular pub nights. Our walks range from easy Sunday strolls in the meadows around Bath to full-on yomps in the Brecon Beacons. We typically have several weekends away each year too.

We have two different programmes: one for members in their 20s and 30s and another for our members aged 40+ (“Brunel Plus”) – many walks and socials are joint ones for both age groups. You’re welcome to come along on a walk or two before joining to see if you enjoy it – but we’re sure you will!

If you want to find out more, click here for the basics and here to find out how we grade our walks (so you can choose one suitable for you) and to help you know what you need to take. If you still have questions please email the committee at brunelwalkinggroup@hotmail.com. Finally you can find us on Facebook too. Welcome to Brunel!

Cheers,

The Brunel Committee

Hi All! Can anyone recommend somewhere near Cardiff to go walking? For a short walk with a pub, etc. Maybe like a half day 🙂 Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Helen, a few recommendations for you... the Taff Trail is a long distance scenic path going from Cardiff Bay towards Brecon . this can be done in short sections. Castle Coch just outside Cardiff to Caerphilly Mountain is a good route partly on taff trail , a couple of miles, great views and country pub called The Black Cock Inn near the finish. at Newport Wetlands nature reserve there is a coastal path which after a while you go into countryside, lovely pub, then back on the path to Wetlands. Also, coastal path walk, quite short from Lavernock or Penarth to Sully (pub there called Captains Wife). There are other half day walks but these are a few to start off with. Hope this helps you! Enjoy 😀

Thank you Jon Gray! That is very useful!!!! 🙂

A couple of pics from the pre-walk for this Sunday's upcoming Mendip Pasty Run walk, just to whet appetites. Talking of appetites, don't forget there's pasties! 🙂
