Bristol & West LDWA

Urgent notice.  All LDWA group walks are cancelled until further notice.  And Y 100 Sir Fynwy is cancelled along with loads of other challenge walks.

Entries for the Cotswold Challenge have been closed.  We don't know if the ban on walks is for 12 weeks or 12 months.  If possible entries will re-open soon.

Welcome to Bristol and West LDWA

We are one of the 43 groups that represent the LDWA in England, Wales and Scotland.  We organise social walks and challenge walks.  Our geographical area is Somerset, Bristol and Gloucestershire with a stomping ground of the Mendips, Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean though sometimes we stray further afield.  Non-members are welcome to try one or two walks prior to joining the LDWA.

The Cotswold Challenge is an anual event in September.  It is a circular route from Birdlip of 18 and 26.4 miles.  The next Cotswold Challenge is 19th September 2020


The Wye Forest 50 is a triennial challenge. This walk is part of the South West Triple Challenge in conjunction with the Cornwall and Devon Wellington Boot and the Dorset Giant.
