A short, medium and harder walk is arranged each month. A rough guide to the grades is as follows. Short walks will be up to 5 miles at a gentle pace; medium walks are between 5 and 8 miles, either flat or undulating; harder walks will be over 8 miles or less than 8 miles but with more climbing.

Strenuous Walks are arranged several times a year. They are typically 10-12 miles long with up to 3000 feet of ascent. Full mountain gear should be carried.

Details of each walk will be found on the walks table at the community morning on Wednesdays where you can sign up for the walk.

Please make a note of the leader's telephone number so that you can ring them if you need to cancel at the last minute. Boots are required for all walks and no dogs are allowed.

The Walking Group are always looking to welcome new leaders for all levels of walks, we invite anyone interested in leading a walk next year to get in touch with the co-ordinator for the appropriate level of walk. (Strollers, Short, Medium, Long, Strenuous) Help & support will be given if required. Many thanks & hoping to hear from you soon.
