Group relaxing in the Brecon Beacons
What we offer
Of course, we provide guided walks - easy, medium and long walks.
Most Sundays feature one or two walks. Also, short evening walks are provided in Summer, when the evenings are long enough: they are usually on Wednesdays of Thursdays.
We also have days out by coach, social events and some longer walking trips. Details of such social events can be found here.
Evening walks are usually of 4 miles or so, usually on a Wednesday.
Easy walks of 3-5 miles at a leisurely pace feature on some Sundays. The walks avoid steep uphill stretches. Depending on the distance to the walk, you may wish to bring something to eat and a flask; most people do.
Medium walks are of about 7 miles at a leisurely pace with ample stops to enjoy the view, a coffee or a chat. They feature on some Sunday. These walks are day walks, so bring a packed lunch and a flask - and extra water on hot or humid days.
Long walks from 9-15 miles at a faster pace feature almost every Sunday. These can be strenuous and almost always feature stops to look at the views and take photographs. A packed lunch is essential, with an extra snack or two for longer, strenuous walks. Except for the coldest days, it is advisable to carry water as well as a flask. On hot, humid days, some members dispense with the flask and just carry 2-4 litres of water.
Walks grades are more fully explained here.
