Social & News

We are, once again, recommencing our walk programmes, starting Wednesday 31st March for smaller weekday groups & Saturday 17th April for our regular Saturday programme. Please see relevant pages for further advice. 

A monthly walk will be held as a Wednesday Walk for all walkers including those who may be less able to do longer, more strenuous walks. These walks will be designed to give exit points along the way in order that some may leave the walk after a shorter distance &/or time.

Normal Weekday Walks will continue as leaders post walks which they wish to lead as a ‘recce’ or as a social walk. Such walks will be on any day of the week and there may be more than one on a particular day. So leaders, it is up to you.

Heart of Wales line – Bucknell

We’re fortunate to live in Bucknell station, on the Heart of Wales line.  Our kids think it’s a dream house, and 6 months after we moved in, still run to the windows every time a train passes.

The station’s old ticket office was converted to a house in the 1970s, and is now an annex to the part of the house we live in.  We’ve recently finished renovating it as a holiday let, and thought your members might be interested to hear more about it.
