Free summer guided walks around Burnham-On-Sea are launched

A series of free guided walks around Burnham-On-Sea have been launched this week.

Burnham-On-Sea Town Team has been awarded a grant of £560 from Sedgemoor District Council's Community Health Fund to launch the unique walks.

"The five guided walks, which are being led by the Town Crier, are being offered free of charge over the summer," said the Town Team's Sarah Milner Simonds.

"The walks all have different themes, ranging from maritime and war to railways and Victorian, and each will provide gentle exercise over 2-3 hours covering easy terrain."

"As well as encouraging healthy exercise, the walks will also help people learn a little more about the fascinating history of the town."

"An illustrated leaflet with details about each route and the landmarks that will be visited will be available from Burnham's tourist information centre."

The first walk, with a maritime theme, takes place on Wednesday at 2.30pm and starts from the tourist information centre on Burnham seafront. Further weeekly walks will take place every Wednesday at the same time until August 20th. All are welcome to join them.

The walks are one of several initiatives being planned by Burnham Town Team, which is run by volunteers, for the benefit of the town.
