Wellington Heath Walking Group meets at Wellington Heath Memorial Hall car park HR8 1ND at 9:30 on most Thursday mornings and often shares cars to walk start points when the pandemic permits.

The walks vary in length and details of each walk are usually emailed beforehand. If you are interested in walking with us then please get in touch frankrozelaar@btinternet.com . Alternatively ring Frank on 01531 631187

The group is very welcoming, quite informal, yet with a preplanned walks programme. Members of the group plan the walks which are mostly local but can also be in the Cotswolds, Severn valley or just over the border into Wales. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside in all seasons, and when the Herefordshire mud gets too much, we retreat to the Hills or quiet country lanes.

We try to follow a monthly sequence so as to offer walks suited to a range of capabilities and can involve a pub or other attraction.

First Thursday (L) Long day walk e.g. 8 miles

Second Thursday (M) Medium length walk, e.g. 4 miles

Third Thursday (S) Short walk, e.g 1 mile to 4 miles

Fourth Thursday (V) Informal village walk

The ability of the members of the group varies over times which influences the walking programme, currently walks are often less challenging. Walk destinations and start times can change according to weather conditions etc. hence the walk leader usually emails walking group members with final details shortly before each walk.

There are other walking groups in the area but the Memorial Hall is a particularly convenient meeting point if you live in the parish. We welcome members from outside the parish who are often attracted by the small numbers in our group.
