08:30 2 Boot: Chepstow to Tintern Variant (Brunel Plus)

Event Date: Sun 1 April 2018
Event Time: 08:30

14.5 miles

At 14.5 miles this big, hilly walk is at the upper end of the 2 boot grading. Starting from the shadow of Chepstow’s great castle, it takes us through the beautiful Wye Valley on a variant of the classic return journey to Tintern. But today we stray from the Wye Valley Way and the Offa’s Dyke Path to view some fascinating industrial archaeology and experience new views of the Severn Vale.

Bring a packed lunch. Pub to finish.

Walk Leader: Geoffrey (07772 584802)

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with more than 400 members. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
