Walk Programme

The following list shows our current programme of walks. Our programmes are planned six months at a time. There is always a possibility that changes will happen - these will be updated on the website, and emails will be sent to members.

Before coming on one of our walks, please make sure that you have suitable clothing, and that you have food and drink.

We do not arrange car-sharing, but regular walkers often sort this out themselves. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on our walks, but please accept that they will have to be kept on a lead in many places.

Distances are given for the longer walks, and we do our best to get the distance right! All short walks are 3 to 4 miles long. There is a charge for social events (but not for walks!)

Please check the walk times - they do vary (especially on Sundays)! In really adverse weather conditions, check with the walk leader or the programme secretary before setting off.
