09:00 2 Boot: The Penhein Way! (around Gray Hill) (Brunel Plus)

Event Date: Sun 7 May 2017
Event Time: 09:00

11 miles

Today’s walk takes us into Wales – just.
Our route is moderately hilly, with 1,800 feet of ascent throughout the day. Along the way, we pass the still-occupied castle at Penhow and a reconstructed medieval village.
From Gray Hill there should be great views to the River Severn and beyond, but we’ll have to climb to earn them!
We won’t see the “big house” that gives our walk it’s name, but we will pass an interesting monument to their “loyal retainer”.

Bring a packed lunch. Pub to finish.

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,
