Safety:

Our Short Route Photo Walks are designed to be walked at a steady pace, to be as enjoyable as possible for everyone, so that we can take in the surroundings. It’s about taking in the moments, and being in nature at a gentle pace, it’s not about rushing to finish. Participants are responsible for their own health and safety. If you are unsure, please contact us and we’ll be happy to share details about the walk. jonathan.barrett@somerset.gov.uk

Participants are responsible for wearing suitable footwear & clothing for the environment. Participants are responsible for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and the suitability of any equipment used.

Any medical conditions that may affect the participants during the walk should be notified to the walk leader/facilitator prior to the start of the walk.

Dogs:

Dogs are welcome, however, please notify us if you plan on bringing your dog/s. We ask that where there are livestock grazing, and fields, dogs must be on leads. Please observe the Countryside Code and park rules, and please respect other dog owners and fellow walkers. We cannot guarantee that every stile is suitable for dogs.

Full details will be sent on booking.

On our Quantock Hills Photo Walks it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a fancy camera or technical expertise, it’s about appreciating your surroundings and finding somewhere in nature that you can immerse yourself. The camera is a fantastic tool to encourage you to slow down and focus your attention, it’s a mindfulness exercise and can be a very relaxing process.

We’ll all walk with each other at a relaxed pace, slowing down and observing our surroundings.
