Walk Leading from Pensford

Sunday 10th April 2016

My first walk of the year has been completed – I am, of course, referring to a walk in which I am the leader, within Brunel 20s and 30s Walking Group.

Our walk would begin in Pensford, nestled neatly in between Bristol and Bath. As you may’ve seen on my pre-walks last month; we’d initially be following the Two Rivers Way before heading to Stanton Prior and then, allowing the Three Peaks Walk to lead us back to our cars…

This time, I would have to do it with a trail of people behind me. Read more of this post

In an effort to explore a little more of the Two Rivers Way, I spent last Saturday on another walk not too far from home (less than a thirty-minute drive).

It begins at Chew Valley Lake, where I was relieved to find that parking at the northern-most area was free – although, a new tariff (£2 per day) comes in to force from this Easter weekend.

Pensford and the Two Rivers Way (Part 3)

Saturday 12th March 2016

One week after my first attempt at this walk, I headed out to tackle it again, having already decided upon a slight variation of my original route. There was a determination to ‘get it right now‘, before I could move on to walking elsewhere.

I’d thought about submitting to lead this walk today – as I write this, in fact – but the thought of walking the same paths for three consecutive weekends did not appeal. I’ve been walking elsewhere this weekend and you’ll get to read about that soon. Now, let’s return to Pensford.
