If you are interested in the Walking group, please click on the Link Advice for New Walkers for more detailed information & guidance. The dates of forthcoming walks are set out below & full details are available by clicking on the Link Future walks - details. Examples of walks we have recently done can be seen by clicking on the Link Recent Past Walks.

Dogs under your personal control are welcome. Peter’s labrador invariably accompanied him until she was over 12 years old.

Alternatively, you may be interested in the Hiking group who undertake walks in the region of 7 to 10 miles, or the Strollers group who walk approximately 2 to 3 miles. Further details of those groups can be found on the links below.

The U3A's insurance does not cover personal injury or accident except where there has been proven negligence on the part of the organisation. It is recommended walkers carry a record of any medical or contact details which may be useful in an emergency. Fellow walkers will hopefully try to be good Samaritans but neither they nor U3A can accept responsibility for actions taken or not taken.

Volunteers are sought to lead some walks at fortnightly intervals, each of approximately 5 miles. Please contact Peter Worboys.
