Walking Section

Regular countryside walks are organised, normally on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of each month. They are around 5 miles and conclude with a pub lunch. All Branch members, their partners and friends are welcome to join us.

Reports of previous walks can be found lower down this page.


We are an informal, friendly group and always open to welcoming new members.  If you are considering joining us or would like further information, please contact any member of the walking group or use the CONTACT US page and we will put you in touch with the group. 

Dates have been produced for our 2019 walks below, as usual the dates may be subject to change as the year progresses.  You will note that the list has already been pre-populated with the names of all those who have volunteered to arrange walks for us so far!!  You will note that there are still one or two gaps remaining that need filling please?  If you are considering arranging a walk for us, please check available date slots with Colin or Phil so that we can reserve the date for you? 

And just to remind you, the Walking Group now owns three excellent walk books that were kindly donated to us by Pauline and John should you like to borrow them at any time.  The book titles are: 50 Walks in Wiltshire, Wiltshire Rambles and Short Walks from Wiltshire Pubs.

THE NEXT WALK  – Wednesday 19th June 2019

This walk will be to the south/west of Devizes and we will meet at the Fox & Hounds (SN10 3HJ) where we will also be dining.  We can park in the pub car park and use the bijou outside loo if needed.  If we could be ready to set off for 10:30 that should give sufficient time to get back for lunch at 1pm.

I have been asked to provide menu choices so I would be grateful if you could let me know whether you’ll be able to come on the walk and provide menu choices for those who wish to eat.  To open the menu, click HERE.



Still looking for volunteers to organise walks for us please for 16 October, 6 November and our Christmas walk on 4 December – I know, nag, nag, nag!

Out of County Walk – Devon

Please forgive the harassment but I will need to book accommodation now if we are to secure the rooms we want.  With this in mind, for those who have not already done so, would you kindly reply with an indication as to whether or not you will be attending this event please?

I intend to go ahead and book rooms on Friday 19 April for those who have confirmed they will be attending.  Late comers would still be very welcome but accommodation in the area(s) concerned would not then be guaranteed.

I shall be booking the ‘saver’ rates at the hotels meaning that there will be no refunds available unless you let me know that you would prefer to pay the extra for flexibility?

An itinerary will be produced soon and circulated to those attending.
