About The Event

Walk description:

We are excited to share that our New Years Day walk is back! We are big believers in the power of community and love to kick the year off with a fresh opportunity to build connections and get outside into nature. This 7.5 mile loop on the Quantock Hills should be just the treat!

Starting at Crowcombe Park Gate, we’ll head up Black Hill and follow the Macmillan Way West along the ridge to Halsway Post and Bicknoller Post. From there we will drop down Lady’s Edge, a beautiful wooded valley which we will follow all the way to the little village of Holford.

From the village we will head into Holford Combe alongside the meandering river, soon ascending via Lady’s Combe up to the road and Dead Woman's Ditch. Storytime will follow here!

The final leg of the walk will take us across to Wilmot’s Pool and back down to the car park.

Places are always limited on our walks, so do book on as soon as you can!

Accidents and Incidents:

Abbie is a qualified Hill and Moorland Leader and Outdoor First Aid Trained. She will carry an appropriate first aid kit at all times. Should you be involved in an accident or become injured during the walk it is important that you notify her (or other leader as shared at the beginning of the walk) as soon as possible so that appropriate action can be taken. Should you feel unwell or require first aid please let us know. Please use the booking form and the paper disclaimer you will be given on the day as an opportunity to raise anything you feel the walk leader should know about.

Due to the nature of walking in an outdoor area there is often a level of risk. You will need to take responsibility for your own actions, health and involvement during the walk and will be expected to exercise judgement based on your fitness levels as to whether you can complete the walk. Any queries please get in touch. You will also be expected to abide by any safety instructions and decisions made by us and have a duty to exercise judgement regarding your own personal safety and that of other members of the group. If you choose to ignore safety instructions we cannot be held responsible for the consequences.

Cars are left at the owner's own risk.

Weather:

The weather can play a major role in our enjoyment of a day's walking, and in some cases can present a real danger. We always review the weather forecast in detail the day before and will send you an email if we have to change any plans. This is however only likely if we feel heading out will put us at real risk. Please check the forecast for yourself and come prepared for whatever the weather! You should come fully kitted out for a full day's hike as suggested on the WILD Walks page of our website.

Please note that the walks are weather dependent. Should the forecast present any danger, we will endeavour to review our plans.
