Description

Update - 10th September: The Day Walk is still happening on the 26th. The walk will now take place entirely in Wales where we will comply with Welsh Government Covid Regulations which allow up to 30 people from different households meet outdoors with social distancing. For information, we will keep the numbers to under 10 in the group.

We gather at historic Tintern Abbey before setting out in a spirit of pilgrimage to explore this lovely part of the Wye Valley immortalised by Wordsworth in his 'Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey.' The poem shows the importance of nature to Christianity in the Romantic movement of the early nineteenth century.

and admire some wonderful views only seen at this time of year, when the trees have shed their leaves. The Walk at six miles is of medium length with moderate terrain involving some rocky sections which can be slippy underfoot if it's wet.

Bring a packed lunch. We will end the day back at a Tintern cafe.
