We walk on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Tuesday of each month. The starting time is 10.00am from a car park - often a pub - and we return there for lunch. Walks are circular, taking about 2½ hours and covering about 5 miles. They are planned and led by members.

In the warmer months we do some longer more adventurous walks, listed below under the title *Special*.

Shorter monthly walks for Strollers are available on the 4th Thursday of each month, starting at 10.30am, lasting 1–1½ hours and covering 2 to 3 miles. Please see the separate Strollers group page for more details

Planning
Walk leaders volunteer to plan and lead a walk at planning meetings held in March and September or by directly contacting one of the Convenors.

Walk Programmes
Each Member is emailed a 6 monthly Programme with the starting location of each walk, a brief description and the Leader's name and contact details.

Signing Up for a Walk
Please sign up for walks in advance, either at the Monthly Meeting or by phoning the Walk Leader, whose phone number is on the 6 monthly Walk Programme.

On the Walk
All members walk at their own risk.
Sometimes a group photograph is taken which could end up displayed on this webpage, if you prefer not to be in them please stand to one side.
