It is now time to submit walks for the May - Sept 2016 walks card. The current collection of submitted walks may be viewed by signed-in members under the Members Only block in the right hand column. This is the list of walks as submitted and with the dates bid for by the submitter. This is a work in progress and in no way constitutes a provisional programme until it has been edited by the walks committee. Walks may be submitted online here.
The walk begins at 7.30. Venue is Briarwood housing Estate, Bray.
The meeting point is at a housing estate called Briarwood. This is situated beyond the top of the Vevay Road, very close to the Boghall Road and also to the roundabout situated at the Greystones end of the Southern Cross Road. This roundabout gives options to go to Greystones via Windgates.
Basically Briarwood is on the lefthandside as you leave Bray and head for Greystones and lies between Southern Cross and Boghall Roads.
Another landmark almost opposite Briarwood is the old Dell site.
There is parking available at Briarwood : as you enter the estate, immediately turn left and there are a few spaces there. There is plenty more parking within the estate itself.
The walk does not require boots but it would be easier to have them. There is a gentle ascent and a good deal of flat walking.
It is a grade C and will last no longer than 90 minutes.
Please note the A walks for 7 March and 4 April have been switched. The website walks page shows these changes.
Please note that Jill is now meeting at 10.00 am at Healy's and not 10.30 as was billed in the programme when the walk was originally to take place on the 27th September.
The A walk down on the printed card for 27th September will now be walked on 18th October and that walk will take place on 27th September. The online program has been corrected.
The supplementary list of D walks, which will be published as a separate sheet had now been added to the list of walks for May to August 2014 which is available online for members.
The walks program for the next session, May to August 2014 is now available to members online. I believe it has the final changes applied to it.
This online version will be modified as subsequent changes are advised.
The social evening shown for 10th Feb in the walks section of the published program should be 10th March. This is shown correctly in the Diary Dates section of the card. The Social Evening for 3rd February is shown correctly.
The walks on the 25 January ( Jill ) and 8 February (Geraint) have been swapped around from that shown on the walks card.
The online Walks program shows the changed plan. In addition the walk start time and location has been changed to 10.00 BSF and Crone CP.
The A Walk 28th September meeting point has been changed to O 142142 i.e. at the official entrance to Kippure.
There will be a car ferry then to the start of the Walk which is now O 068154.
