Summer 2016 in the Cam Valley
We are the Ramblers Group for the Somer Valley and encourage everyone, everywhere to enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk.
Based in the Somer Valley area we have excellent access to Chew Valley, The Mendips, The Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain and The Deverells. We sometimes travel further afield to Exmoor, The Quantocks and Dorset. We walk on Sundays and Wednesdays. By joining Ramblers you can access walks across the country for free, receive a quarterly magazine with info on walks, kit and new intitiatives and join in with footpath maintenance work. The choice is yours.
