On Friday 8th April 44 members and guests from Cirencester Ramblers met at the Cumberland Hotel Bournemouth for a 3 night walking weekend. This art deco style hotel proved an ideal location to explore Bournemouth and enjoy 2 beautiful walks led by Stuart Dyer and John Appleby. As well as the walks the group found plenty to see and do in and around the Bournemouth area.
On Saturday we took a coach to New Swanage and walked back to the hotel, passing Old Harry Rocks and returning via the Studland Ferry. Click here to read the walk report
On Sunday we travelled to Hengistbury Head and walked about 8 miles to Highcliffe Castle and back. Click here to read the walk report
