GRID REFs – Show the starting points of the walks

CAR SHARE – To share cars & ensure walkers without cars can get to the walks, we meet at the lay-by in Northbrook Road opposite Day’s Park (SZ 026 799). We suggest passengers make a contribution towards petrol costs, in proportion to the distance travelled. Please bring a change of shoes, or covers for your shoes to avoid getting other people’s cars dirty. (From 2021 the pickup point & car sharing are suspended. We hope to resume this soon).

PUT – Indicates ‘pick-up time’ when cars will leave the lay-by.

BUS TIMES – Are departure times. Unless otherwise stated, all bus information is for “More” buses, and start from Swanage Bus & Rail Station. Confirm times when latest bus timetable is printed. Concessionary bus passes are not valid for use on services before 09:30 Mon-Fri  [N.B. valid all day on Saturdays].

MEMBERS traveling by bus from the Wareham direction for walks starting from Corfe should contact the walk leader beforehand to let the leader know they could be late arriving for the start.

WALKS DETAILS & POOR WEATHER Walk leaders should be contacted if further information is needed about their walks. In inclement weather please check your e-mail for late cancellation even on the morning of the walk. For those members not on e-mail please call the walk leader if unsure whether the walk will take place. Please note that walk leaders have the right to decide whether to start a walk or not and to abandon or alter walks if they believe it is warranted by the conditions.

WARNING – All sporting & leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them & walking is no exception. In spite of the safety of members being the paramount concern, accidents can occur. It is important that each member appreciates they are responsible for their own safety and need to identify hazards and take all reasonable steps to eliminate or minimize the potential for an accident to arise. Personal accident insurance is not covered by the SWWG group insurance. It is the responsibility of each individual member to decide whether or not they need to provide their own personal accident cover.
