Wednesday Walks range from 6 to 9 miles in length and up to 1000ft in height. Suitable clothing is a must and should include good walking boots and waterproofs. We won't walk in very bad weather so if the forecast is poor, make sure you check your email the night before, in case the walk has been cancelled. Winter walks are likely to be low and local, and we will venture further afield as the seasons progress.
For more information contact Ann Wilson.

The last walk in the Cartmel area before the 2021 New Year lockdown 30/12/2020.
Round Grange and Cartmel 09/09/2020
Up and Down the Duddon Valley - 11/03/2020
A very interesting walk let by Neil, taking us along Parson's footpath which few of us had walked before. Lunch in one of the oldest Crook barns in Cumbria made the day.
Around Coniston Water March 4th
A good day at last but look at the recent flood level of the lake as shown on the bench where we washed our boots.
22nd Jan 2020 Rosside, Holebiggerah and Pennington area
The highlight of this walk led by Sheila Bull was to cross the remains of the 11th century Pennington Castle. It made up for the 'slutchy' (Sheila's words) areas we sometimes had to cross. Read about the fascinating history of the castle online at History of Pennington Castle
15th Jan 2020 Whitbarrow Scar - The sun smiled on us again
08/01/2020 - Thirteen of us turned out to enjoy a seven-mile walk in the Coniston area. We were very lucky to have sunshine most of the day and no rain. It was a little wet underfoot in places, but everyone agreed it was a lovely walk and a great way to start the year.
