Sunday 4th June – Woodchester
Gill Carter is leading a Woodchester and Selsey common walk.
The walk starts at the Coaley Peak picnic site and follows the Cotswold Way to Selsey Common. Then we cut across to Woodchester park and walk back along the lakes to the mansion and then up to the car park.
There is a gentle climb up to the Common, and another from the mansion up to the car park.
The walk is about 8 miles, and if this weather continues is not muddy. There is quite a lot of shade, particularly on the Cotswold Way.
Being a Sunday the café (and toilets) at the mansion will be open – but remember you are a mile from the car!
Meet at Cross Elms as usual – if you are intending to go direct please let me know.
Saturday 17th June – Summer Outing
This year the summer outing is to Weymouth and the Isle of Portland. Although the rail disputes carry on, we will travel by train to Weymouth from Bristol, as the 17th isn’t a strike day.

Thursday 22nd June – Troopers Hill
Helen and Tony are leading . The key point is that, though short (only 3 miles) it has a bit of sharpness to it, in the sense of steep slopes and steps, though not rough terrain.
