Walking and Mountaineering Society


Please log in to join this organisation.

Hey everyone!

Welcome to the Bath Spa University Walking and Mountaineering Society (BSU WAMS), where everyone is always welcome! We are a casual group and we don’t mind if you come to just one walk or to every event. Whether you’re a casual stroller, a dog walker or a seasoned mountaineer, you’re more than welcome to join us!










What we do:

  • Weekly walks

  • Weekly socials

  • Pet dogs

  • Lots of chatting!

  • Halloween and Bonfire Night walks

  • Picnics

Our socials are normally on Fridays at 7pm at the Bath Brew House, althought this year our first social will be on Thursday the 26th, right after the activities fair! We also hold coffee socials every few weeks. 

Our weekend walks start off close to home and exploring the local area, with walks like the two-mile Bath Skyline round, or the sixteen mile adventure from Bath to Bristol, (but not back again). Whatever your level, we’ll have something for you! We also do trips out in the mini bus to places like Glastonbury Tor and even further afield. We also run some climbing and cycling trips and are looking at doing some bigger trips this year too - to some actual mountains! Watch this space.

PLEASE NOTE: If you’re coming on a walk, you need to let us know beforehand!

Want to join us? This is what you need to know

For the first two weeks of term, you can try out the society and come on walks without the commitment of joining us properly to see if WAMS is for you! After that, you’ll need to pay your membership. It’s a bargain at £5 for the whole year! And then you’ll be one of us!


Necessary kit (that you’ll need on most walks):

  • Water & a snack

  • Boots or shoes with good ankle support and grip

  • Raincoat 

  • Phone, fully charged

  • A bag to put most of this stuff in

  • Extra layer, in case it gets cold
