Holme Valley

Walking (ambling)

Not surprisingly, walking groups are popular choices for Holme Valley u3a members.Picture 1

Picture 2 Our walks all have experienced leaders and we ask them to check out the route first. They will make sure someone is responsible for leading – and for making sure no-one gets left behind.

The u3a provides third party insurance for members on these walks. Consequently it does not cover us for personal accident/injury – we are all responsible for our own safety.

Stout walking boots, shoes or trainers are recommended and poles are always useful. Always come prepared for the terrain and weather. Winter walking particularly can be very muddy!

We currently have three grades of walking – Ambling, Easy and Moderate.

The ambling group is now just restarting. These are easier slower pace walks although some experience of rambling is still useful. There are currently "ambles" every day except Sunday organised jointly by members of the original group. The walks vary from very easy around an hour along a track or path to walks of upto 2 hours on more varied terrain. Walks are designed to avoid stiles, roads and any steep gradients. To email for more information or to join this group please click ambling.

The Walking (easy) group will usually walk for around 2 hours, covering 3-4 miles and routes will involve some hills and stiles but will avoid anything too strenuous. Walks are on the 2nd and 4th Thursday mornings of each month. For more information, or if you would like to join this group, please click here - easy walking group – to send an email.

Picture 3 For more experienced walkers the Walking (moderate) group meets every Thursday morning. These walks are more strenuous, covering 6-8 miles and will include some challenging terrain. Details of these walks can be viewed here Walking (moderate).


If you are not sure which group would be best for you, drop a line to our Groups Co-ordinator who will put you in touch with relevant group leaders.
