Event Date: Sun 27 May 2018
Event Time: 9:30

9 miles

A flat, easy-paced walk through lovely Cotswold countryside using field paths, lanes and quiet country roads. From Sherston we head west to the picturesque village of Sopworth, there taking the Wiltshire Path to the woods north of Badminton Park, stopping briefly at the Ragged Castle, an 18th Century folly. We then take Cherry Orchard Lane to Luckington, visiting the church (with a glimpse of the Grade II listed Court) which featured in the TV series of “Pride & Prejudice”. Finally we pass through the hamlet of Brook End to join the Macmillan Way back to Sherston.

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,
