The afternoon walks should be no more than 6 miles in the summer and day walks 7-8 miles. Saturday walks may be full day or half-day. Those taking part do so at their own risk and the decision to proceed with a walk due to weather conditions rests with the leader.

WALK LEADERS: Committee members have access to fluorescent jackets. If your walk includes roads used by traffic please consider use of these by the leader and back-marker and ask a committee member if you need to borrow any jackets.

If you haven’t walked with Warminster Walkers before please feel free to just turn up and you will receive a warm welcome. For further details about the walks please contact any of the following:

  • Treasurer: Graham Palmer 01985 846083

  • Secretary: Heather Yates 01985 213530

We are keen to attract new members. Anyone who would like to try out some of our walks before deciding if they wish to become a member would be most welcome. We would expect new people to become members once they've tried out a couple of walks.
