About our Long Walks

Our Long Walks start in more remote locations outside of Wincanton, so a car - or a lift - is necessary. The walks will often include stiles, hills, muddy tracks and uneven ground; if you have walking poles you might find it useful to bring them. The views are often stunning so you might want to bring a camera too. Occasionally, walks will end by a pub and the group will eat lunch together but this is optional.

Many of our walk leaders are very knowledgeable about the local area and will be able to tell you about the villages you pass though. In the summer we like to go further afield and hire a coach to take us longer walk where we can enjoy a picnic.

If you are interested in joining this friendly walking group, please drop into the Centre to register, or complete the simple online form below. Booking for individual walks is essential so we can let you know if the walk has to be changed or cancelled due to bad weather.
