Fyne Court

After some stormy weather, 12 ramblers had a calm sunny Sunday for a lovely walk from Fyne Court down to Tetton Park and Happy Valley and back via Hestercombe and Broomfield Common.

Lovely bracing walk from Culmstock over the Blackdowns today. 10'ish miles, very little mud and deep carpets of dry beech leaves to trudge through. Thank you Monica and Martin

Sunday 14th November
Clifton Bridge

(from Carol)

Thanks, Marcus for a great 13 mile scenic walk across 2 Bristol bridges, along the river & back through leafy parkland. 11 Ramblers enjoyed this view at our lunch stop.

Friday 12 November: Maunsel Lock (from Mike)
Rainbow over Maunsel


16 walkers and 13 stayed for lunch in the tea rooms.
Obviously, these shorter walks are proving popular amongst our aging members.

Sunday 7 November Sue’s walk from Porlock (photo taken by Jane)

Porlock Bay

A steep climb up Hawk Combe was rewarded with fine sunny views of Porlock Bay. We descended from Pitcombe Head along the lanes to Culbone Church and down to Porlock Weir where we stopped for a much needed cup of tea on our 12 mile walk.

Sunday October 31st, South Petherton (from Wendy)





Not quite what Colin had planned for on the walk from South Petherton today. Crossing water meadows and the Parrett flood plain after recent rains meant we had to back track and reroute 3 times to avoid deep water on the footpath and lanes. We lost half the walk as a result but still managed 8 miles. Well done Colin for a very interesting and enjoyable walk.

The mystery plant/flower is called PHACELLIA. It is good for bees and after flowering, can be turned in as a fertilizer. There were two very large fields of this, but nobody knew what it was.

Kilve's Cardboard Cream Tea

Cream Tea

Call me old fashioned if you like but this is not my idea of a traditional Somerset Cream Tea.

More like a railway station buffet hurry-up-before-the-train-comes.
