09:00 2 Boot: Woodlands of Wales – ancient and otherwise (20s & 30s)

Event Date: Sun 22 April 2018
Event Time: 9pm

13 miles

This walk explores the beautiful landscape near to Caerphilly, north of Cardiff. We pass through several different types of woodland and forest, many of which (fingers crossed) will be carpeted in bluebells this time of year. En route we will see a castle and enjoy magnificent views to the north and south. A mixture of muddy paths, lanes, gravel tracks and stream beds means that waterproof footwear is essential.

Bring a packed lunch. Cafe to finish.

Walk leader: Matt B (07853 124080)

Meet 09:00 at St Mary Redcliffe

Alternative meeting point at 10:00

Caephilly Mountain Carpark – next to the snack bar


Please contact the walk leader if you will be meeting them there.

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,
