Mole Valley Ramblers

friendly walking in the heart of Surrey

Group Holiday 2017

For the Group holiday in 2017 we will be going to north Somerset, staying at Holnicote Housethe HF house at Selworthy, for the week beginning Friday 8th September 2017. There will be the usual three levels of guided walks, on Exmoor and along the coast.

We will be booking individually, as this allows for access to more single rooms. There is usually a high demand for these. The HF reservations telephone number is 0345 470 7558 or 0208 732 1250, or you can book online at Gill Collins on 01306 500157 if you have any queries.

The Planning Inspectorate has told Surrey County Council that a Public Enquiry into the multi-user play trail will be needed. SCC has decided not to continue with its proposal at the moment due to the cost of setting up an enquiry, but they might want to revisit the play trail plans at a later date. More information and comment can be found here.

The Surrey Hills Society recently ran an article on the county's public paths network - a topic close to our hearts. You can read their article here.
