The new programme (July - September) is finally complete though the dates for the first two walks have passed! Regrettably David’s walk in the South Hams was cancelled due to poor support in the heat. Eleven walked with Simone and Paul Romain enjoying their hospitality at Sandford.

See below for a summary of the events. The full Newsletter can be found on this link.

Forthcoming Meetings

Sandford Circular - 5 miles

This will be a circular walk from Sandford and Paul & Simone have kindly offered to provide a buffet lunch at their home afterwards.The walk is open to all in the usual free format fashion BUT IF YOU WISH TO HAVE LUNCH PLEASE LET SIMONE & PAUL KNOW BEFOREHAND – NO LATER THAN SUNDAY 8TH JULY.

10:30, Tuesday 31st July

Tiverton Circular - 6.5 miles

Walk from Tiverton Canal Basin (SS964122), starting at 10.30. For those coming by bus from Exeter, the 55 bus from Exeter leaves at 9.30 from STOP 16 in PARIS ST, arriving Tiverton at 10.07. It takes 13 minutes to walk to the Basin from the bus station in Tiverton, for those coming by car you can park at the Basin for 3. By my reckoning the walk will be 6.5 miles, so a packed lunch is required. On returning to the Basin there is a nice tea place for tea etc in a garden.The walk takes us eastwards along the Grand Western Canal as far as Manley Bridge, and then south up into the hills via Warnicombe, Newte's Hill, peaking at Cogwell (237m). Then down to Collipriest and return to Tiverton along the Exe Valley Way.

10:30, Wednesday 22nd August
