The second edition of our acclaimed walks book, fully revised with 22 new photographs and extended to include the Whitchurch Wheel is out now and available from BookShrop in Green End priced £6.
The regular programme of walks, both local and further afield, is currently suspended. However, while numbers on walks and the shared use of cars are restricted, we are now running a programme of bookable small-group local walks [see above].
The link to book on these walks has been emailed to members. If you woul like to join the walks why not join the group? Membership costs only £5 per year. To join, click on Membership below.
and more from some of our member's lockdown walks and historic group
walks together with some puzzles can be found on the Whitchurch Walkers Facebook page.
Our well-maintained local paths are of course open to walkers taking their daily exercise, either alone or with members of their household. Additionally it is now permitted to walk with 5 other people who are not members of your household so long as you keep at least 2m apart. Although it is now permissible to drive to the start of your walk in England, it is still in everyone's interest to walk locally and not try to head off to honeypots farther afield.British Mountaineering Council (BMC) HERE
