Event Date: Sun 29 January 2017
Event Time: 9.30am

21km, 13 miles

From Mells we follow Wadbury Valley to Great Elm then over gentle hills to the villages of Buckland Dinham and Lullington. We return to Mells via Vallis Vale. There’s walking on river sides, some industrial archaeology including 19th century iron works and old railway lines, and plenty of geology on display with a great example of a limestone ‘unconformity’.

Meet: 9.30am at Mells on the road opposite the Talbot Inn pub, grid ref ST727492, BA11 3PN. There should be sufficient parking on the road here, but if not please park elsewhere in Mells, eg near the post office/shop.

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,
