The walking was a joy and all our thanks go to Nick who once again planned three excellent days out to suit all of us.

On our first arrival day we set off from Simonsbath for a shorter walk through the surrounding countryside and forest. The second day was a walk along some part of the two moors way (Exmoor -Dartmoor) which was splendid.

Day three started wet. What do mileaters do when it’s wet? They find a good pub until it blows over and then they walk. Which is exactly what we did, we holed up in Countisbury and then in brightening weather walked to Lynmouth via the coastal path. Absolutely stunning views and a great walk.

Three days of friendship and fun with some excellent walking… what more can a person want?

A tip, get in early for next year at Ross on Wye!

The Mileaters

The village walking group began some 25 years ago with the aim of walking the Dorset Coast Path, in sections, from the Devon border to Sandbanks. Subsequently the reverse route from Sandbanks to Devon has been undertaken.

We are a friendly group of local residents, ex-residents, and colleagues from the area, who meet on a fortnightly basis to enjoy the diversity of the wonderful Dorset countryside. We take it in turns to lead a walk with most members being allotted a fortnight's slot twice a year. The choice of distance, location, and day within that fortnight is at the discretion of the fortnightly leader, but walks (anywhere in Dorset) are usually between 4 and 8 miles. 

Walk details are distributed by email. A picnic lunch is often carried in the Summer, but a pub lunch in the Winter is the norm - rehydration is de rigueur! Generally we meet on the Village Green at 10.00 a.m.
