The walks programme for 2018 is shown below.
The walks last for approximately 3 hours and are bespoke, that is, they are designed by the walk leaders.
Some walks have themes that usually reflect the leaders’ interests, e.g., archaeology, local history, conservation, wildlife and wild flowers.
They may incorporate parts of other well known and way-marked walks, which are shown on the following pages of this website, e.g.,
Beaminster Hills Circular Walks (Beaminster Ramblers Millennium Walks)
and they may pass through nature reserves, such as Kingcombe and Powerstock Common , hilltop iron age forts, such as Eggardon, Lamberts Castle, Pilsdon Pen and Ham Hill, and of course, the Jurassic Coast, anywhere from Chesil Beach to Lyme Regis.
