6:45 pm 1 Boot: Brunel’s 18th Birthday Evening Walk along the River Avon to the Lock Keeper Pub in Keynsham (Joint)

Event Date: Mon 11 September 2017

7 miles

Come and join us all for Brunel’s Birthday Walk Celebration! For Brunel’s actual 18th Birthday, we will walk along some secret back streets via Temple Meads to Netham Park and onto the river path. We shall follow the riverside path all the way to Keynsham, where we can enjoy a celebratory birthday drink at the Lock Keeper riverside pub. Please bring torches as the last part will be in the sunset and then darkness! We will be getting trains or buses back to Bristol from Keynsham, as both run frequently until late. We look forward to celebrating our 18th Birthday with you all, a great view, a birthday drink and possibly some birthday treats along the way! Party Hats are welcome.

Meeting Point – 18:45, St Mary Redcliffe Car Park
Led by James Dobbin

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,
