Event Date: Sun 3 June 2018
Event Time: 09:30

13 miles

This walk will take us through some of the suburbs of Bristol as well as along both sides of the river Avon. We will walk over the M5 motorway bridge as well as over Clifton suspension bridge. Terrain is a combination of grass, tracks, pavements and footpaths (suitable for walking shoes). There are three ascents, otherwise it is a flat walk. Some lovely views across Bristol. There may be time for an ice cream en route as well as tea shop at the end. We will set off on foot directly from the water tower.

Bring a packed lunch. After the walk we’ll go to a tea shop.

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,
