Bradford on Avon Walkers

If you fancy getting your steps in, whilst walking in Bradford on Avon then you may be interested in checking on the Walkers Are Welcome group!

The group facilitate monthly led walks which are open to everyone and are normally between 5 and about 7 miles long. You don’t need to register, there’s no charge and there’s no need to book. Just go along and join in, you’ll be most welcome. The group do remind you to wear clothing appropriate for the weather and robust footwear; the terrain can be grassy, muddy, stony or tarmac. There may be stiles to negotiate and usually at least one hill to climb.

They walk on the second Sunday and last Tuesday of each month. Those taking part are asked to arrive at 9.25 a.m. ready to leave at 9.30; and they are usually back by lunchtime, 12.30 / 1.00 ish. You may wish to bring a drink and snack for a short refreshment stop en route; if it is very warm/hot please make sure you bring extra water, particularly on a longer walk.

Occasionally they have a longer walk of 10+ miles or a walk where they go further afield, by minibus or train.
They meet outside Explore BoA (Tourist Information) which is in Westbury House Gardens next to the Town Bridge, BA15 1DE.
