Chepstow Hill Walking Club - The Only Way is Up!

Formed in 1977, the Chepstow Hill Walking Club is an informal group of people of all ages who like more than a casual stroll.

We organise monthly Sunday walks and four or five walking weekends throughout the year. Details of walks to be held over the next few months are on our Future Walks page. The Past Walks page includes walk descriptions and photographs to illustrate the type of walks that we organise.

You can contact us by email at .

More Information

Although based in Chepstow, we have regular walkers from throughout South Wales and also in Bristol and Gloucestershire, new walkers are always welcome.

The 'club' is an informal group, there is no constitution, no committee, no officers and no subscriptions.

Twice a year, we meet for a social evening and to plan the next seasonís walks.

We walk in hill/moorland areas or similar type of countryside and will average 8 - 12 miles, depending on the terrain. The walks are not undertaken at a fast pace as the aim is to enjoy the scenery.

Walks take place in any weather, so warm waterproof clothing and boots are essential. A packed lunch and a hot drink should also be taken unless stated otherwise. Some dry clothing left in the car is useful.

Because of free roaming sheep and cattle, dogs (even on a lead) are not permitted.

Walkers are responsible for their own safety at all times. We walk as a group of friends and it is up to individuals joining us to ensure that the walk is within their capabilities. Leaders will will be familiar with the route and will be able to describe the terrain. If you find the walk is too strenuous then let other walkers know; someone else will walk back to the start point with you. Walk leaders cannot be held responsible for any loss or injury occurring to any person whilst taking part in walks or activities.

Vehicles are used on a car sharing basis, the passengers sharing the fuel cost.

Non car owners are welcome.
