March photos are now here! (sorry, both Sues have had their hands full lately …)

Sunday 5 March
Gill Carter: Dodington, Cotswold Way and Monarch’s Way. We have some photos: is Wendy walking on water?

Thanks to Gordon for photos: he says “The walk attracted five of us. Weather could have been better, but we all enjoyed it” – which is surely the most important thing!

Thursday 9th March (medium)
Don Walter: Quantocks and Halsway. Thanks to David McG and Gordon for photos.

Thursday 16th March
Pat Walter: Social lunch at the Eastfield Inn (watch the News Update page for details of future lunches, to be co-ordinated by Lilo de Beaufort). Thanks to Pat for photo.

First ‘social lunch’, March 2017, Eastfield Inn

Sunday 19th March
Jill and Janet: Wotton-under-Edge, the Tyndale Monument and the Cotswold Way. Thanks to Hilda for photos: she says “We were eight ladies, it was a nice walk, with steep long uphill country path, very muddy at times, very wet … but no rain! We all enjoyed the day.”

Thursday 23rd March
Margaret Ruse: Wells. Despite a damp and cloudy day, more than a dozen of us caught the Mendip Explorer bus and most of us enjoyed a short walk around the town’s historical attractions, followed by a convivial Café lunch. We have photos!

We started with coffee at St Cuthbert’s church, the largest parish church building in Somerset, before moving on to the Cathedral.

The umbrellas were out in force at the Cathedral and Vicars Close, but we were a colourful bunch!


Across from the Cathedral, this glorious blossom caught my eye. Not many of the famous swans were on the moat but I spotted this one! And colourful bulbs brightened the day.


The legend of the dragon, a mosaic created by local schoolchildren.

All in all, a very pleasant day, not marred by the damp conditions.
