The blog has been running for over a year now, so it gives us a useful review of walks we have done.
From the home page you can view walks done by month (right hand side), view the index terms used for the walks (left hand side) or just search for something that interests you using the search box on the right hand side.

What was your favourite walk? Please add a comment to let us know. And also – what walks would you like to do? You don’t actually have to lead them yourself but it would be good to have some new ideas. Note that on the right hand panel of the home page there is also a section “Links to other websites for walkers”; you might like to explore these. They include for example
and links to leaflets of walks from the Tourist Offices of Clermont L’Hérault, Lodève and St Guilhem le Désert
Through vineyards and olive groves, past the Canal de Gignac, to the 12th century chapel of Saint Sylvestre des Brousses, with good views over the surrounding countryside, the walk is mainly on paths and tracks, with a slight climb to the chapel.
To get to the start of this walk – on entering Aniane take the D27 North and park near Restaurant La Terrasse on the small industrial estate a few hundred metres from the centre.
Distance: 8 km
Leader: Celia (and thanks Andrew for the last bit)
A walk through the fields to the south of Nébian, mostly on farm roads, with interesting geological commentaries from Andrew and good views to the nearby hills. We crossed the river Dourbie by a ford (if you had good boots) or stepping stones.
We also passed a lovely picnic spot – to bear in mind for the summer if Andrew’s friends permit.
Distance: 5 km
This walk leaves Lodeve past Takavenir and then along the track through the fields by the A75, crosses the Lergue by the bridge (to Lauroux and Pegairolles) and returns by the Vieux Chemin de Poujols. We have done this walk several times in the past, though not recently: it is about 8km, and mostly flat.
