June Walks

Sunday 2nd June

Derbyshire Bridge near Buxton

Moderate 10 miles

A route will be selected to suit the weather on the day but it will be a combination of moorland tracks and traffic-controlled roads and very pleasant valley walking around the Goyt Valley/Axe Edge areas. It will be tailored to avoid areas encountered during the May Day weekend walks.


Sunday 9th June

Kineton, Warwickshire

Easy 9½ miles

We start in the village and walk through open fields towards Butlers Marston where we take a break at the church. Onwards through fields and streams, crossing a long disused railway line we reach the historic estate village of Combrook and an area of mixed woodland known as The Rides. After stopping for lunch overlooking the lake and house at Compton Verney, we return to Kineton through fields and some road walking.


Sunday 16th June

Skenfrith Castle, Monmouthshire

Moderate 14 miles

A full day of walking with stunning scenery that starts with an easy 5 mile stroll following the beautiful Monnow river along the Welsh/English border before taking in quiet country lanes and parts of the Three Castles walk, along which we are rewarded with stunning views across rolling countryside. We visit two ancient churches on the way including that of the resting place of Charles Rolls of Rolls Royce fame.


Sunday 23rd June

Malvern, Colwall & Mathon

Moderate 12 miles

This walk features the magnificent ridge of hills that inspired Elgar and Housman. There are superb views of Herefordshire and Wales to the west and the wide expanse of the Severn plain to the east. We also visit the attractive village of Colwall and the hamlet of Mathon with its fine church.


Sunday 30th June


Moderate 10 miles

This is a lovely varied walk using parts of the Cotswold Way, local footpaths and the Windrush Way with a few good climbs on the way. The walk takes in the ancient long barrow of Belas Knap, the church at Charlton Abbots, the ruins of a Roman Villa in Spoonley Wood and Sudeley Castle.
