Beer to Branscombe and back!
6 people attending
0 places left
Join us on this inland and coastal walk taking in the views of East Devon. We'll start in Beer at the YHA (please park in the car park in Beer - details in the parking section) and head along tracks and fields to Branscombe. Here we'll have a leisurely lunch break here before starting the steep climb (we'll take it steady) up the chalk cliffs back to Beer. You'll be rewarded with views of the Jurassic Coast for the climb :-)
This walk will be joining those staying at YHA Beer for the weekend as part of the Relaxed weekend in East Devon. If you're nearby anyway and want to join us just for the day, please come along.
If you're already signed up for the Weekend, you don't need to join this event as well - you're already invited!
Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:
- Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
- Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
