Summer Field Visit: NB new date 17.6.23 Gatcombe Roman Town and Proposed Roman Road

On Saturday June 17, 2023
Bev Knott, BAAS committee member

PLEASE NOTE: This walk has been re-scheduled to Sat 17 June 2023.

For our June field excursion Bev Knott has very kindly agreed to lead another walk, this time around the southern part of Gatcombe Roman town and along the route of a proposed Roman road to the south.  Please note this is a different walk from that taken by Bev last May.

As previously the walk will finish with a tea at “The Greedy Goose” restaurant located just west of the walk in Long Ashton.  In view of this arrangement the restaurant has kindly agreed we can use their car park free of charge for the afternoon.  We will meet in the car park at 1 pm before setting out on the walk (level paths along the side of fields with no steep ascents).  We will return between 3pm – 4pm for the tea of light refreshments. “The Greedy Goose” is open from 9:30 am should prior refreshments be needed.  The cost for the afternoon is £6 per person and we are limited to a maximum group size of 25.  Places will be allotted on a “first come first served basis”.
