Somerset – A Landscape with Chapels Webinar by David Dawson
12 January, 2023 @ 19:30 - 21:00
It is easy to underestimate the significance of the legacy of nonconformity in Somerset. In 1991, the Royal Commission listed 198 nonconformist chapels in Somerset, 13 of them ‘principal monuments’. David will talk about what they tell us about the social history of the county.

GRADING OF WALKS
Events are graded from 1-4 in difficulty. The grading is found in the event description in the calendar on this page. Keep in mind that a change in weather conditions can make a walk more difficult than anticipated. All walks and activities demand a basic level of fitness, suitable footwear and waterproof clothing.
1 Easy – generally even ground with a few gentle slopes; no special fitness needed. Comfortable footwear required.
2 Moderate – for reasonably fit people, may include unsurfaced rural paths and tracks, moderate slopes, uneven surfaces, steps and stiles. Walking shoes/boots required.
3 Strenuous – for fit, experienced walkers, will include hills, uneven surfaces, tracks and may include muddy terrain. Walking boots and waterproof clothing are essential.
4 Confined spaces – including caves and attics. Locations may be dusty, slippery and dark.
Activity leaders carry out a risk assessment beforehand. Participants are required to provide emergency contact details before taking part in an activity – this information is destroyed by the group leader after the activity has taken place.
