Some walks start and finish in Beaminster, when we meet at the Julia Memorial in the town square

Often there is an opportunity for a pub lunch at the end of the walk
Degrees of Difficulty
Our walks are suitable for people of all ages, however, although the countryside round Beaminster is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, you will need to cope with hills, stiles and, sometimes, mud.
Membership and Visitors
The annual membership is £8, however, visitors and people wishing to “try us out” are welcome on the walks at no cost, although a donation to the Dorset Air Ambulance Service would be appreciated. Donations should be given to Ian L’Argent or, in his absence, Peter Holloway.
Membership is coordinated by the secretary, Eleanor Moore, by phone – 01308 863955 or email – email@example.com (note eleanor_l_moore), with payment to the treasurer, Ian L’Argent (07833 087147)..
We are sorry, but dogs are not permitted on our walks
In case of bad weather on the day, anyone wishing to go on the walk should telephone the leader or check this web site to see if the walk will go ahead.
