For all walks please arrive at least 10 minutes before the starting time. Please check the table above to be sure of the start time for your event.
The afternoon walks should be no more than six miles in the summer and in winter the afternoon walks are normally no more than five miles. Saturday walks may be full or half day and if a full day will be approximately seven or eight miles, which may include a picnic lunch in the spring/summer or pub lunch in the winter.
Those taking part do so at their own risk and the decision to proceed with a walk due to weather conditions rests with the leader.
WALK LEADERS: Committee members have access to fluorescent jackets. If your walk includes roads used by traffic, please consider use of these by the leader and back-marker and ask a committee member if you need to borrow any jackets.
If you haven’t walked with Warminster Walkers before please feel free to just turn up and you will receive a warm welcome. For further details about the walks please contact any of the following:
- Treasurer: Joan Chick 01985 211814
- Walks Programme Secretary: Petrina Clarke 01985 510052
- Secretary: Heather Yates 01985 213530
We are keen to attract new members. Anyone who would like to try out some of our walks before deciding if they wish to become a member would be most welcome. We would expect new people to become members once they’ve tried out a couple of walks.
We recommend new walkers to phone either Petrina or Heather (phone numbers above) beforehand so that we can advise on suitable footwear and warn you if steep hills or climbing stiles are involved on that particular walk if that may be a concern to you.
Suggested contribution to drivers:
- ‘A’ and ‘B’ walks £2.00 (up to 20 miles each way)
- ‘C’ walks £3.00 (greater than 20 miles each way).
