The Welsh Government has now relaxed its Covid restrictions so there is no longer any limit on the number of people who can meet outdoors.

We therefore invite you to join us on our walks.

But, please read our Guidance on Covid-safe walks before you come along and check in the 'Walks' section of our website to confirm whether each walk has begun again.

IMPORTANT - If you develop Covid symptoms in the 7 days following any of our walks, please let us know immediately so we can inform other walkers and NHS contact tracing.  Please email us on


Bill's Walks (July-December 2021)

All these walks are graded as harder/challenging.  They are 6 or more miles in length and last 3+ hours so bring a packed lunch.  The walks cross rough ground which is sometimes muddy so walking boots are needed.  The walks will include inclines (some steep), often go over stiles and require a good level of fitness.
