1 Boot: Sandpoint Circular Trail (approx 6.5 to 7 miles) (Brunel Plus)

Event Date: Sun 3 June 2018
Event Time: 10.00

All coastal walkers welcome on this short but breathtakingly beautiful walk along the spectacular beach and headland of Sandpoint.

The walk begins with a walk from the car park along the beach for about 1 mile before a steep ascent up onto the headland and along the downs on top of the cliffs. On route we will catch a glimpse of sea birds and other wildlife as well as volcanic features left by a by-gone era and a chance to see Woodspring Priory which is an attractive piece of history in a unusual location.

Gear: good walking boots or shoes and warm clothing if the weather becomes colder.

Bring: Snacks and drinks although we will be stopping at a cafe after the walk.

Time: 10am Water Tower Clifton Down or 10:45 Sand Bay car park: BS22 9UQ.  Map: Explorer 153

I will be at the water tower to meet walkers. If you are going directly there please ring the walk leader.

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,
