Visitors are welcome to join our walks for a £2 donation towards the Mendip Society Heritage Fund. Walks are sometimes for members only. Please wear suitable clothing and boots, and please ensure that the walk grade is suitable for your fitness level. All walkers must take personal responsibility for their own safety (and that of any accompanying children), informing the leader of any personal health matter which might affect them on that walk.

Unless stated otherwise, well behaved dogs on leads are welcome on walks. Assistance Dogs are welcome on all of our walks
