OUR ADOPTED WALKS

 

Walks are offered that will suit all tastes and are given grades such as 'easy', 'moderate', 'hilly', 'strenuous' etc, so you can decide if they are suitable.

 

One of these 'Published Walks' is offered as a download for anyone to use as a taster, to illustrate the type of walks we undertake. It is hoped that it will encourage you to come along on an organised Society walk to enjoy further what the Society has to offer. The walk will be changed on an irregular basis to offer alternatives.

 

To find the walk on offer at present click on the underlined walk OR HERE and enjoy.

 

If you can't wait for other walks to be offered free, any of the walks listed on this page are available to purchase for only £1 each. Just phone Terry Arnold on 01684 575725, he will tell you where to send payment, and he will then post the walk details to you once payment is received.

 

The Society aim is to walk all ‘rights of way' footpaths in the local area.

 

This area is bounded (approximately) in the south by the Worcestershire/ Gloucestershire border, in the east by the M5 and in the north by the Teme valley. In the west, Society area covers the eastern half of Herefordshire.

 

Over the past 25 years or so the Society has compiled descriptions of walks linking together many of the local ‘rights of way' footpaths. The descriptions are updated periodically and are available; with all enquiries to Society member Terry Arnold Tel 01684 575725.

 

In the list on the right, the number identifies the walk reference and is followed by a short description of the walk route, whether it is strenuous or not, and the length.

'n/d' means that no description of the ‘hardness' has been given. ‘Easy' means that the cumulative height climbed during the walk is less than 300ft ‘Moderate' means that the cumulative climb is between 300ft and 1000ft and ‘hilly' means the cumulative climb is over 1000ft. Strenuous is anything above.
