Getting to the Start of a Walk

Walkers out of the immediate area may wish to meet at the start of the walk per grid references etc detailed in the Walks Programme.  You should however be aware that last minute changes or cancellations may necessarily be made at the Teignmouth car sharing point.  Anyone joining the walk at the walk start point is therefore advised to contact the walk leader beforehand and should arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time so that they are ready to depart by the published time.

Please remember to bring a change of shoes, plus a bag for muddy boots.  Strong footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended as well as refreshments and fluids.  Leaders do have authority to decline to accept any walker not properly equipped to undertake the walk they are leading.

We generally stop for a 'coffee' break after an hour and, unless stated otherwise, consume our own packed lunches at an appropriate time.  Please also bring sufficient fluids to avoid dehydration.

The mileages shown are approximate and for guidance only.

Paths in Devon can be steep and muddy.  Check with the walk leader if you are undertain about the terrain or if the weather conditions are poor, especially those joining at the start point instead of Teignmouth.  

Car Sharing and Central Meeting Place

For car sharing purposes we meet at Higher Buckeridge Road,Teignmouth,TQ14 8QP. 

This wide road has the cemetery on either side.  Please have respect for any visitors to that place.

Lifts are available subject to space, and a petrol contribution as indicated against each walk.  This contribution is based on the length of the outward journey from Higher Buckeridge Road up to and including: 

7 miles £1.00, 10 miles £1.50, 14 miles, £2.00, 17 miles £2.50, 20 miles £3.00, 24 miles £3.50,over 30 miles £4.50

Members who require lifts should be at the Higher Buckeridge Road meeting point by the meet time shown in the programme so we can depart within 10 minutes. 

This facility is not normally used for our short evening walks.

 

Dogs

Dogs may be transported at the discretion of the driver, and are allowed on walks unless indicated otherwise on the Programme. They must be kept under control at all times.  The owner/handler must accept full responsibility for the dog and comply with the leader's requests.

 

 

 

Personal Details Sheet

In the unlikely event that illness or an accident might incapacitate you on a walk, we ask that you keep a Personal Details Sheet in an easy to find place in your ruck sack.

This is easier to find if it is printed on yellow paper protected by laminating or in a clear polythene folder. Our Secretary holds a supply of these forms but a copy can be downloaded  Here
