also a provisional Visits programme for 2021 on the Visits page. You do need

During the longer daylight days, we organise walks around interesting areas of Abergavenny for members and for the public.
How to book?
Booking is not usually necessary but details are given on the walks page of this website, in the press and on posters. We also arrange guided tours for groups.


From May or June onwards, we visit places of historical interest.


How to book? A list is sent out to members by email (or post) in the January.


Book as soon as you can as places are now being allocated on a 'first come' basis, although there are sometimes cancellations later. You need to be a member to book.
