Around 7-8 miles of beautiful rural countryside with no roads. No torches or mobiles! The idea is to walk by the light of the full moon. If the weather is good, the skies here are really clear. The full moon is very bright. I'll make a decision on whether to run the walk after looking at the weather forecast in the afternoon. Book on the walk now to ensure a place and then call me in the afternoon to confirm it is going ahead. I'll only cancel if it is going to be wet or very overcast. Meeting at my office - there is masses of parking outside. Any questions - My number is[masked]
Are you a dog owner based in Bristol who loves to walk and talk? If so get in touch - BBC Bristol is looking for some chatty dog lovers to talk about all things topical - how are you feeling about Christmas? Does your pet hate loud noises at Halloween? Are you following the US election? What's your best coping strategy in the pandemic? We are hoping to speak to some dog owners who would be interested in taking part in a group dog walk on Tuesday 9.30am somewhere in Bristol. It would be for a pre-recorded tv segment that would go out later in the week on Morning Live, BBC One. The group of 5 would have a socially distanced chat on topical issues going on - anything from how you feel about Christmas to how you cope in the pandemic. If this is you and you're free this Tuesday at 9.30am please get in touch at [masked] For more details. I have not shown any other details as you will need to contact Alyson first. Sent on behalf of BBC Bristol. Dog walkers only. Walkers without a dog not allowed to participate sorry.
Parking at the Knapp Hill car park - titled Pewsey Downs on the map, this short 5 mile walk runs along the course of the Wansdyke trail.

Part 2 is 8 miles, Part 3 is 11 miles and subsequent walks are being plotted... Watch this space. Posted walk on day prior to lockdown commencing at Midnight on the 5th.
If you haven’t already heard the news about the second lockdown from Thursday assuming it’s voted in parliament, there will be a lockdown in England till Wednesday December 2nd. The rules state no mixing households indoors and you can meet only one other person outdoors during this time. The walks will be postponed to a later date. If the lockdown continues into later December and beyond, walks in these months may be postponed. Keep safe everyone.
