Walk programme


Basset Hound Walkers at Savernake

Ham Hill basset walk

Our first proper walk was in October 2007 from Ham Hill near Yeovil along the ridge to Montacute (see above). Then back for lunch at the Prince of Wales. A modest five miler. We have repeated this walk several times since as it is such a good one.

The walk programme is set out here. All will be around five - six miles to make it worthwhile journeying from a distance. Just bring some lunch and bonios. And rainwear - just in case it repeats our Stourhead walk.

Provisional dates (all walks start 10.30am, except Oct 1st at Exmouth, at 10.00am)

Finally a legal preamble: anyone partaking these walks must look after themselves and their hound. Neither I nor the Basset Hound Club (if you're a member) can accept responsibility for any mishap. OK? We're just a group of friends out for a walk who happen to have an addiction.
