9.00 1 Boot: Cwm Carn / the Severn Bridge is now free! (Joint Walk) **This walk is rescheduled from 30th Dec now with cafe added!!!

Event Date: Sun 20 January 2019
Event Time: 09:00

This walk is in the past.

For as long as Brunel Walking Group has existed, we have had to pay extra for our walks in Wales - but no more. As of Monday 17th December, the Severn Bridge is now free - so I thought I would put on a walk to celebrate. The walk starts from Twlbarlwm hill fort near Risca in Wales, we then follow moorland paths along the boundary of a forest, before turning back on ourselves to follow forest paths along the bottom of the valley to Cwm Carn, finally returning from there via the hill fort. This will involve one bigger hill toward the end of the walk and a smaller one at the beginning.

Bring packed lunch. Cafe 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 over 400 members and is part of The Ramblers charity. 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,
