The Wivey Walkers organise two walks each month, and anyone is welcome to come along- there is no membership or charges. On the first Wednesday of each month there is a walk from Wivey Square at 10.00am, or a local walk using the bus to take us to the start, and walking back. A Saturday in the middle of the month sees us going a little further afield, car sharing from Croft Way car park, typically to the Brendon Hills, Exmoor, the Quantocks, and the Blackdowns. Again, we leave at 10.00am.
See the Walks Programme PDF on the left, or the Events section for more information about the walking programme and bus walks. The programme is also displayed on the notice boards in the Square, which also has one complete board showing the footpath network around Wivey, including the 26 mile circular 'Wivey Way'.
We are a friendly, informal group , who generally walk at a moderate pace whilst chatting. Our organised walks are covered by public liability insurance, but we do ask all walkers to sign a form accepting personal responsibility. That form 'Disclaimer' is on the left as a PDF, which you can open and print. Please sign and date it and bring it along the next time you join us for a walk. Add your email address if you would like to be kept up to date about walks.
If you have a favourite walk you would like to share with others, do get in touch. We're looking for new walks and leaders.

Following Government advice, wiveywalkers is suspending its walking programme until further notice. This is to protect the health of our members and help suppress the spread of covid-19.
Please see the Ramblers organisation statement on walking independently which can be found at https://www.ramblers.org.uk/volunteer-zone/coronavirus.aspx
We would like to wish you all the best during this difficult time.
See www.wiveliscombe.com/wiveywalkers for up-to-date details and contact email.
Walks subject to weather conditions, terrain (and cattle!) and route may change. Wear boots or strong shoes on all walks. Advisable to bring food as there is usually a stop for picnic lunch. Dogs welcome if under control. Everyone is responsible for own safety on all walks and must have signed the disclaimer before walking (please print off and complete form on website).
Look forward to seeing you.
