Trust seeks southern expansion
Bookmark and Share
A Scottish-based conservation charity is seeking to encourage more activity in southern England and Wales.

The John Muir Trust's South West Member's Group has launched an appeal for people keen on expanding activity, which may interest those who like to go walking in the southern half of Britain.

It has already planned some events, such as a hike run jointly with Bristol Ramblers at the Chartist Cave in Llangyndir and a guided walk in Withington Woods in Gloucestershire.

The last gathering held by members in the region was in November last year.

Areas that conservationists may wish to consider include the two national parks in the south-west of England and the Brecon Beacons in South Wales.

Dartmoor, which contains southern England's highest point at High Willhays (2,039 ft above sea level) was one of the first national parks established in 1951, with Exmoor following in 1954 and the Brecon Beacons being established in 1957.
