A Walk in Trefriw  led by Gill Scheltinga (Trefriw WaW)
  We’ll travel  to Trefriw in the Conway Valley, where local guides will lead us through the stunning scenery of this part of Snowdonia National Park.

Meet at  Sherry Mill car park at 8am. This is a members only walk and full details have been sent to members. Please email if you intend to come so that transport and lunch arrangements can be sorted.

A Willis Wander  led by Liza Willis
This five and a half mile walk is based on walk 1 and 2 from our “10 varied walks around Whitchurch”. It is relatively easy with six stiles on the way and will take us along the canal to Grindley Brook and on footpaths through fields. Please bring suitable clothing, footwear and some refreshments.

Meet at  Sherry Mill car park at 1.30pm. Cars not needed.

Updated 11 July 2019

Whitchurch Walkers were formed in 1976 by a group of local people interested in walking and the protection of local footpaths. The group has over 100 members and holds one half day Saturday afternoon ramble and one all day Sunday ramble per month throughout the year plus a number of mid week-walks. The Saturday and mid-week walks are normally between 4 and 6 miles and the Sunday walks between 8 to 11 miles.

The Whitchurch Walkers are organised by a committee (listed below) that meets in the Black Bear, High Street, Whitchurch on the last Tuesday of each month except for December and March, which  is reserved for the Annual General Meeting. Every 6 months a new programme is produced and published giving details of the walks planned for the next 6 months.

Our current subscriptions, renewable in March of each year, are:

            Adults                                                                   £5.00

            Affiliates (Societies, Councils etc)                        £5.00
            Life membership                                                   £50.00

New subscriptions taken out between October and February will run for 13 -18 months.

We are always keen to recruit new committee members and/or walk l eaders.  Anybody interested is welcome to attend any of our meetings or contact us through the 'contact us' page of this web site.
