Sunday 6th June (from Wendy)
Burton Pynsent Tower

It was overcast but very sultry for Lynda's scenic 11 mile walk out from Fivehead today. The wild flowers in the meadows were delightful, notably the buttercups, orchids and vetch lings, identified by Paul. Today saw the relaunch of car sharing from the Crescent. Almost back to normal!

Sunday 16th May: Porlock Bay (pics from Mike L)


Group at Porlock

11 miles including the Rugged South West Coast Path. Familiar ground but always new things to see and new paths to discover. Bluebells on the rugged coast path and spectacular views walking back round Bratton Ball.

River Barle

A fine day for an 11 mile walk out along the River Exe and back along the River Barle. The stepping stones near Withypool have been rebuilt since we did the walk recce on 11 April.

Sunday 25th April : on the Brendons
The Brendons

Eleven ramblers plus our four footed companion Alfie enjoyed a very pleasant few hours in the unbroken sunshine on a 10½ mile ramble led by Carol A (thanks Carol) on the Brendons. We started at Luxborough and walked up onto Croydon Hill where the views over the Bristol Channel were stunning and exceptionally clear right over to Wales. The photo shows the group at their lunch break just before the final push to the top.

April 18th: First 2021 Sunday Ramblers Walk.

Landacre Bridge

12 Taunton Deane Ramblers and Alfie, the dog, enjoyed a coffee break at Landacre Bridge. On Horsen Hill we saw over 100 red deer. It was a great 12½ mile walk across the moors from Withypool on a bright sunny day.
