Wild Walks (mostly mountainous)

Wild Walks (mostly mountainous)

Various offers were made at a recent meeting of this group. Among them were a local day-walk ending with a social meal for walkers and partners, a winter’s day walk in Derbyshire or Yorkshire and 3/5-day trips to the Lake District, North Wales and Mid Wales.

If you are interested to learn more about any of these plans please contact Sheila.

Phil Sayers is planning a walk in June for 5 days in wild Wales.  Walking about 16 miles a day from mid-Wales to Abergavenny passing wonderful countryside including the Black Mountains.  B&B in charming villages including Builth Wells and Crickhowell.

This walk is now full but there may be last minute spaces.

For details contact Philip preferably by email at p.sayers@gmail.com or alternatively on 01462 686798.   Please provide your LALG membership number and a mobile number if possible.
