Horton, Ilminster, Somerset



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.


All walkers make a donation of £2.00 (not including breakfast) and whoever leads the route, donates the money to a charity of their choice or to the Village Hall Charity Fund.


Walks start as advertised in the Post Office, via email to regular ramblers or on this web site.


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.

Next Walk:  Sunday 17th November


10 Km gentle slopes.  The walk starts at Seavington, takes in Dinnington, skirting Hinton St George and Lopen.


Meet at Seavington playing field, Water Street, TA19 0QH.   Please park at the NE corner of the field,  Grid Ref ST407148 - just after the last house on the right if you’re coming down Water Street from the north). As usual we meet by 10.20 for a 10.30 start.


The main car parks next to the hall have been booked out for the day so we can't use those.  This is also closer to the pub (300 metres to the north), which has very little parking.  If you want lunch [at The Volunteer Inn, New Road (old A303), Seavington, TA19 0QE] please phone them on 01460 240126 to make a booking.  Say it's for David Bennett's group.  Also please let me know.
