Disabled Ramblers Quantocks Tour – Dowsborough
The Disabled Ramblers Quantocks Tour is taking place between 25th and 29th September. It includes four rambles with this one taking in Dead Woman's Ditch and Dowsborough Hill Fort.
The Disabled Ramblers is a small charity working across England and Wales to help make the countryside more accessible to people with limited mobility. To participate in these rambles you need to be a member and details can be via the information link.
