2024 – Our 75th Anniversary

In 2024 we celebrate our 75th Birthday with a year of walks and talks celebrating the people, landscapes, history and nature of the Quantocks.

No matter who we are and what our connection is to the hills, it’s the love of the land that unites us all. In our anniversary year, we’d love you to join us in celebrating what’s special about this area.

We’re planning talks by leading writers on nature, the countryside and rural life, alongside everything from glow worm walks to dawn chorus walks, fungi, flower and butterfly walks across all the seasons. We’ll be showcasing the special qualities of the Quantock Hills, the wildlife, the working land and places and opening up a conversation about the future role of The Friends.
