Walk programme


Basset Hound Walkers at Savernake

A legal preamble: anyone partaking these walks must look after themselves and their hound(s). 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.

Mer de Glace

Don't worry, not one of our regular walks, but this taken in September 2018. Query: could my 13 yr 11 month old Matilda and Melody be the first Basset Hounds to go to Mont Blanc? To be exact, not actually climb Mont Blanc, but they did take the Montenvers rack railway and see the Mer de Glace, one of Europe's most amazing sights.

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.

Big Basset over stile
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 Fingle Bridge walk.
