BoA WALKERS ARE WELCOME’S TWICE MONTHLY WALKS

Two walks per month are organised by BoA WAW, on the second Sunday and last Tuesday.
They all leave at 9.30 a.m. from the War Memorial in Westbury Gardens, in the centre of Bradford on Avon by the Town Bridge, BA15 1DE and are usually between 5 – 7 miles in length. Occasionally we may do a longer walk, staying out for lunch and returning later in the day.

These walks are free, open to everyone and are led by local people with local knowledge. Please allow at least 3 hours for the walks as we often have a stop for coffee.

To find out more keep an eye on this website, subscribe to our monthly newsletter or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


 

Dogs: assistance dogs are welcome, otherwise we have a “no dogs allowed” policy.
