This is a Challenge Walk for experienced and regular walkers only!


This walk is approximately 12.5 miles (20km) but it has 1000 metres or so of ascent and is a circular walk taking in both The Sugar Loaf and The Skirrid, hence, ‘Holy Loaf’ or ‘The Skirrid Loaf’ 🙂

We have allowed plenty of time for this so although it’s a fair distance and a full UK mountains worth of ascent it will be walked at a regular walkers leisurely pace… But that pace needs to be maintained for the duration 🙂
Lets hope for crisp and bright rather than grey and wet!
We will meet at the National Trust’s Skirrid Car Park
