|Trip Report: Dorset 31st May – 2nd June 2013||
Eleven of us set off for South Dorset at about six, driving down via Weston-Super-Mare, where we stopped off for some award winning fish and chips.
We stayed near to Dorchester, and next to a field with some very cute goats! On Saturday, we walked along the Dorset coast path, stopping to admire Durdledoor, a natural limestone arch.
Cutting back to Lulworth Cove after lunch, we enjoyed ice cream and the sunshine on the pebbly beach.
|Trip Report: Gower 24th – 27th May 2013||
A group of nine travelled down to the Gower peninsula in South Wales on the Friday (stopping in Ross-on-Wye for fish and chips) and then staying at a campsite with great facilities.
On the Saturday, we went for a walk down to the beach, spending time at the beautiful Rhossili Bay, playing some Frisbee. We trundled on the South Wales coast path to a fantastic headland called Worm’s Head, where we encountered a vast number of rock pools and spotted a few seals. We headed back with a BBQ for tea.
|Trip Report: Peak Distrist 19th May 2013||
For this day trip we headed to Edale in the Dark Peaks which was about a 2 hour drive away.
The day was sunny and warm. A nice change to the trip of last week. We arrived in Edale at about 11am.
From Edale we started out just behind the Nag's Head and walked up Kinder Scout alongside Grinds Brook.
Upon reaching the top we trudged through the deep but unique peat mounds whilst heading over Crowden Head to the un-named fall just north, after which we headed due west through quite a deep bog to get back onto the Pennine Way and see Kinder Downfall.
|Trip Report: Lake District 10-12th May 2013||
We had an early-ish start at quarter to 6 to ensure we got to the Coniston Hall campsite by the 9pm deadline. We numbered 10.
The trip up indicated toward the weather we would be having for the entire weekend. Spots of sun, then cloud, then raid then low cloud and just a mixture of any of those.
Arriving slightly past 9pm, we set up our tents in a waterlogged field. Once done Myself and 2 others headed up Old Man of Coniston for a night walk, whilst the rest stayed at the campsite, socialised then went to bed.
|Trip Report: Peak District 5th May 2013||
Sixteen people went to the Peak District for this day trip. We headed to Longnor where we would walk up Chrome and Parkhouse hills.
We were met with heavy traffic on the way up, but that was to be expected for a bank holiday weekend. The sing-a-long in the bus made the queues bearable for most.
The day was filled with sunshine and clouds with members taking every opportunity to get some snapshots for our upcoming photo competition.
During the walk and at our lunch break we had an opportunity to play some frisbee which was quite strenuous given the high winds.
|Trip Report Snowdonia - 8-10th March 2013||
We left the Guild at the normal time on Friday, arrived at a bunkhouse that was quite luxurious as Wayfarer accommodations go. Heating that was too hot, bunk beds with pillows, wi-fi and a TV... it felt quite disconcerting and the consensus was that we should stick to camping barns.
Saturday morning we left to Dollgelau and split into 2 groups. One would go around Cadair Idris clockwise from the south car park and the other would go anti-clockwise with an extension, at a faster pace.

|Wyre Forest Trip Report 27th January||
20 people set off in 2 buses bright and early on Sunday morning heading to the Wyre forest, apparently in Shropshire much to Pete’s annoyance, (threats of not colouring in maps properly were made).
Here we spilt into 2 groups with Callum and Julia and the other led my Pete and Craig, with a host of other walk leaders in tow. Callum's group headed south and east doing a short walk ending back up where we all started an hour before the other group.
|Trip Report - Brecon Beacons 11-13th January 2013||
We left the Guild a little late about quarter past six,
Waking up nice and reasonably early the next day,
Gale winds, ice and snow,
We drank and relaxed,
