Horton Ramblers are an informal group who meet once per month for a walk around the local countryside. The walks last between 2 and 4 hours and are suitable for all ages and abilities. The walks will always be on the third Sunday in the month but may not coincide with the Sunday breakfasts being served at the Horton Village Hall.
We pride ourselves on our ability to finish most walks with the same number of ramblers as we started and have a very low injury rate. Each ramble is usually organised by a different member of the group so be prepared to organise a walk some time in the future.
Proceeds down Touches Lane, takes the footpath to Paintmoor lane, following the track to Avishayes House, through the grounds of the house, clock tower, taking the footpath to Lydmarsh and passing through Lydmarsh Farm, crossing over two fields of Maize, through the Youngs Copse woodland to enter the Chard Golf Club course. Taking Knapps Lane down to Chaffcombe, view waterwheel renovated, walk through village to the entrance of the Chard Reservoir walk to the Bird Hide and return to car park at Touches Lane.
