River Parrett Trail: Burrowbridge to Langport

Sunday 10th December 2017

Along with walking more of the Severn Way long-distance footpath, there’s a chance I’ll be able to complete the River Parrett Trail in 2018.

It’s only fifty-miles in length (same as the full Mendip Way) and could be completed in a short series of circular walks. From Steart in Somerset, at one end of the West Somerset Coast Path; it continues south, it follows the river south to its source, across the border and in to Devon.

Saundersfoot to Tenby (Wales Coast Path)

Sunday 19th November

By the time we all arrived and parked our cars in Saundersfoot, everyone had packed up in preparation for the drive home to Bristol.

Of course, we were going to squeeze a walk in before then! A couple of options were available and I had signed up to co-lead a walk of around eight miles.

Manorbier to St. Florence (Wales Coast Path)

Saturday 18th November 2017

Saturday had come and, with it, the opportunity for another inland walk around one of Pembrokeshire’s many pockets…

However, a number of us were more enticed with the idea of a coastal walk, in spite of the commonly-known weather forecast.
