A new venture and opportunity to connect with the countryside, inner experience, and others in the Sangha.
Sunday 8 July – Blaise Castle (NW Bristol), approx 5 miles, led by Alison Mendoza
A walk through the beautiful woodlands of the Blaise Castle Estate, incorporating fine panoramic views from the top of the gorge, unique rock formations, Hazel Brook (a tributary of the River Trym), and designed landscape features such as Rhododendron Walk, Beech Cathedral, Lily Pond, and Tarn Lake. We will stop for a picnic lunch beside the Gothic castle folly before continuing on through the Estate via the ancient St Mary’s churchyard. Part of the walk (about 20-30 mins) will be in silence. Tea and cake at Alison’s house when we arrive back. The walk takes a bit over 2 hours and uses both woodland trails and surfaced paths, covering a mixture of terrains including two relatively steep ascents/descents. Meet at 11.30am at Alison’s house in Henbury (full address to be given to drivers nearer the time). Please bring a picnic lunch.
Please let Alison know on:email@example.com if you are planning to come on a walk, also whether you can offer / require a lift from Bristol or will join us at the start of the walk. Lift shares operate on the basis of folk making a contribution towards petrol costs.
Walk leaders are needed in the months ahead so let Alison know if you’re interested. Thanks
