Walks are held on the second Saturday of each month, from September to June, and we usually meet at 10am. Most walks are on fairly level ground and of 4-7 miles in length, but a few may be more testing. Instead of having a single group leader, individual members volunteer to lead walks of their own choosing. New members are welcome to join us on our monthly walks.
Each session's walks are listed below, emailed to group members, and also intimated at the U3A monthly meetings. Full details of each month's walk are added a couple of weeks ahead of the walk date.

It should take just over two hours, including, if desired, a short stop for tea/coffee or snack. Afterwards we can drive for coffee/lunch at Parkhill Garden Centre.
