A SEVEN-and-a-half mile circular walk to the lost village of Clicket will kick off The Exmoor Society’s annual guided walks programme.
Clicket was once a thriving community in a secluded Exmoor valley but became deserted at the end of the 19th century. Remains of its buildings and bridges can still be seen today.
Walkers are invited to meet in front of Timberscombe Church at 10.30am. The guided walk will take you up and over Black Hill and back through Broadwood Farm.
Two other walks in April include A Stroll Through The History And Landscape Of Simonsbath on Monday, April 21, 10am to 11.30am, meeting at Ashcombe car park, Simonsbath. There’s also a chance to enjoy Horner’s ancient woodlands on Saturday, April 27. The seven-mile circular walk which will explore Horner Woods and Ley Hill, starts at Horner car park at 10.30am. These are just three of the 22 walks guided by members of the Exmoor Society taking place during 2014. The society and its walk leaders are keen to share their knowledge and love of Exmoor with others. All are welcome and walks are free, although a small donation is requested from non-members.
There are two to four walks each month until the end of October, all with varying themes and lengths and taking in the beauty of the differing seasons and variety of landscapes of Exmoor.
Walks are carefully paced and some include optional pub lunches and cream teas. Details: www.exmoorsociety.com, phone 01398 323335 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
