What we're about
My name is Steve Mynard and I lead journeys of exploration and discovery into the landscapes of our past. I set up A Walk in the Past to give me an opportunity to share my passion for walking and for history with like minded people. I have lived in the West Country for thirty-five years since moving here from Essex in 1982. During that time I have wandered all over Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset as well as the Bristol and Bath area and further afield into South Wales and the Southwest Peninsular. There is just so much history around here! I really enjoy the research that goes into each of my walks.
I am a qualified Lowland Walk Leader with Mountain Training and a qualified Outdoor First Aid Provider.
Since we started out in October 2016 I have put on 39 events and the feedback is pretty good! People who join A Walk in the Past like a good walk with interesting people and they like learning more about the history of our region. We always stop off somewhere for refreshments.
Our walks are between four and eight miles in length and of varying levels of challenge, but generally the term 'amble' covers most of them.
Lift sharing is always encouraged so don't let transport be a barrier. Walkers make arrangements through the Comment Board for each event. Lifts are regularly available from Bath and Bristol.
Come along and meet us. New members are always most welcome.
