Bristol & West LDWA

Welcome to Bristol and West LDWA

We are one of the 44 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 stamping 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 will take place on 23rd September 2017.

The Wye Forest 50 is a tri-anual challenge. This walk is part of the South West Triple Challenge in conjunction with the Cornwall and Devon Wellington Boot and the South Wales Taith Torfaen.  The next Wye Forest 50 will take place on 14th and 15th April 2018.
The marshals walk for the Wye Forest 50 will take place on 17th and 18th March 2018.  The marshals walk is strictly for people helping on the main event.
