Sunday 26th September.

Wednesday 22nd September: Joy's walk round The Mump (pics from Mike)


The Mump

Kilve's Cardboard Cream Tea

Cream Tea

Call me old fashioned if you like but this is not my idea of a traditional Somerset Cream Tea.

More like a railway station buffet hurry-up-before-the-train-comes.

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.
