Year Six: November 2019 - November 2020
Meeting up with old & new friends to walk and explore panoramic landscapes, is why this Group was formed.
There's a full Itinerary of walks for 2020 view-able in the events diary and the links section of this web page. New members are warmly welcomed.
View the 'Dates for Your Diary' section for our pending walks . View the 'Links' section for an Alphabetical list of walk descriptions.
This year there will be walks in Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire & Norfolk.
I’d like to emphasise how I define the difficulty of the walks
I rate the walks as 'Easy' or 'Moderate' or 'Moderate - Strenuous' and maybe now is a good time to clarify how I define the differences. "Easy" - Walks for anyone who doesn't have a mobility difficulty or specific health problem. "Moderate" & "Moderate - Strenuous" - Walks for anyone with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. Our walks may include some steep paths and open country, and they may be at a brisk pace. 'It always pays' to view the relevant walk descriptions to best help you to assess your suitability.
Walking Boots & Hiking/Trekking Sticks are advisable, + Warm/ Waterproof clothing.
New members are warmly welcomed. All of the Hikers members are encouraged to submit their favourite walks, pass to me your favourite start points and grid references and let us work together to expand the list of Hikes/Walks
