Event Date: Sun 14 May 2017
Event Time: 09.15

11 miles

This is a lovely walk…

We start at Tintern Abbey, following the old railway line alongside the river Wye. We then climb up onto the ridge and back along the Offa’s dyke path passing the Devils Pulpit (with cracking views of the abbey and valley below).

We drop down and cross the river again and up the other side of the valley through lovely woodland and quaint villages before looping back to Tintern passing some of the oldest known Ironworks in Wales.

Parking is £3 by the Abbey but this is redeemable in the plethora of tea shops and pubs nearby

Total ascent : 550m

Bring a packed lunch. Pub or Tea Shop to finish.

Walk Leader: Paul S (0788718475) & Nick S (07720962229)

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,
