We are a friendly group of walkers who meet every 2 weeks for a walk of 5 to 6 miles
Start and Return Time
We leave at 10am and return around 1pm
Details of the next walk are found:

Some walks start and finish in Beaminster, when we meet at the Julia Memorial in the town square
Details of walks not starting in Beaminster will include the place and the map reference
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 Andrew Ravenhill or, in his absence, Alan Wakefield.
Membership is coordinated by the secretary, Eleanor Moore, by phone – 01308 863955 or email – firstname.lastname@example.org (note eleanor_l_moore), with payment to the treasurer, Andrew Ravenhill (01308 863448).
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.

Leaders : Judy Cook 01308 861185 and Christine Cakebread 01308 488372
Meet at Beaminster Square.
Meet in the square for a 10.00am start. We will be following Walk no.3 on the Circular Walks leaflet which is just under 5 miles and which features 2 short steep climbs. As this is taking place during festival week we should be able to return promptly for anyone who is attending an event in the afternoon.
Please note that in light of recent events we will have a quiet, reflective moment in memory of Sue O’Neill during our ‘coffee break’.
