We are a friendly group of walkers who meet every 2 weeks for a walk of 5 to 6 miles

Start Place

Julia Memorial

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 Ian L’Argent or, in his absence,  Peter Holloway.

Membership is coordinated by the secretary, Eleanor Moore, by phone –  01308 863955 or   email  – eleanor_l_moore@hotmail.com (note eleanor_l_moore), with payment to the treasurer, Ian L’Argent (01308 863859)..

Dogs

We are sorry, but dogs are not permitted on our walks

Weather

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.
