Current walks programme (very limited).




Explanation: CP: Car park; VH: village hall parking. NT: National Trust. PH: pub.
All mileages are approximate. 9.30*am: (note the asterisk) means meet at Crescent Car Park, Taunton to car share.
A contribution towards the driver’s expenses is advised, at the rate of 28p/mile - suggests RA HQ - shared between all occupants.
Medium walks:
The letters (MED) denote walks of seven to nine miles in length led at a more relaxed pace. Rendezvous: The figure below the date/time of walks is the grid or map reference for the location of the walk’s starting point. To learn how to read a grid reference, please click here.

Telephone numbers for walk leaders: unless otherwise indicated all numbers are preceded by 01823 when calling from outside the Taunton area.
Walks with the headline in green denote
linear walks (ie walk in one direction, transport to return or occasionally the reverse) and may involve advance booking via the leader to book coach or train transport. Be warned that dogs (or even hounds, amazingly) may not be permitted on hired coaches.

Holidaymakers (RA members): please join us if you're in our area so we can show you a bit of beautiful Somerset (and Dorset and Devon, sometimes).


Note the colour coded blocks to enable you to swiftly pick out your preferred days.

Colour code key Wednesday afternoon walks: 4˝ - 6 miles, with varying degrees of difficulty (see walk details) Friday evening walks: 4 - 5 miles, always followed by an optional meal Sunday all day walks: 10 - 12 miles, occasionally more: expect hills. Sunday afternoon walks: 4˝ - 6 miles, with varying degrees of difficulty (see walk details)

Dog walkers please note: Taunton Deane is one of the few RA groups that even allow dogs to accompany their owners. If you do bring along Man's Best Friend (no, that's not The Wife) please act responsibly by keeping your dog under close control. The walk leader has the right to insist that any difficult dogs are kept on a lead. Thank you.

If you rely on a SatNav to find the start then you will need to convert the grid reference to a Latitude/Longitude that can be inputted. There are several websites that will do this for you: one is here.

Late alterations to the printed programme are shown in red (also listed on the Late News page).
