Walking & Exploring the Landscape

Join us for a Walk in the local countryside. 

 

Starting at 3 miles, and depending on the fitness levels of the group, we walk and explore the countryside, noting points of interest such as animal evidence, tree identification, looking at dry stone walls, finding ponds to discover where nature is thriving.

Using Ordinance Survey maps, we follow a route, and become accustomed to basic map reading, so we don't get lost if our technology fails us with no signal.

 

When & where? 
Osprey has a 17 seat minibus.  We collect from the following locations:

Thursdays - 9:30am pick up Worle Sue Ryder shop (Morrison complex)

                 9:55am pick up Highbridge train station to meet the 9:36am train from Taunton

                 10:00am pick up Burnham-on-Sea B&M

                 10:20am pick up Cross nr Axbridge

                 We can collect you at any bus stop on the A38 between Burnham and Cross.

                 Returning before 4pm to Burnham.

                 

If you have your own transport you can meet us at the start of the walk.  We usually walk on the West Mendip hills and through surrounding villages.

The location will be sent out each week using what3words App.
