The majority of our walks are organised as club walks and divided into two Series. The Wessex Series is held on Sunday mornings, normally with a choice of 10 and 20km [6 and 12 miles] routes. We usually start from a village hall where we have refreshments and free drinks, at the finish. Starting times for these walks are from 0900 and we aim to finish by 1400. The Summer Series is held on Saturday evenings, starting from 1700 and with a 10 km [6 mile] route, normally starting from a pub. Entry fee for our Series walks is £1.
All our walks are strictly non competitive, our only constraint being that we normally
only hire the halls until 1400 so trust walkers will be back by then! Series walks
are designed so that they may be completed at your own pace. We do not all go out
together in one big group but each walker has a copy of the route and is able to
start at any time and walk at their own pace. This has the advantage that quicker
walkers are not held up by a slower pace and vice-
We organise three larger events which attract walkers from all over the country. The Woodhenge Womble is normally held the last Saturday in January and starts from the Durrington Pavilion. The Shipton Star is held on a Wednesday usually about the middle of August and starts from the Shipton Bellinger Village Centre. The Wylye Valley Kanter is normally held in early October from South Newton Village Hall, near Wilton.
We also administer several Permanent Walks of various distances, organised by club members in different parts of the country, which may be walked at any time. All our walks qualify for the IVV Awards scheme, more details can be found by following the link from our ABOUT US page and going to the British Walking Federation page.
