Although we may break near a pub we cannot guarantee it and they are
often busy at lunchtime on Sundays. It is therefore advisable to
bring a packed lunch on longer walks.
Please do not park in pub car parks unless you are using the pub, or the walk instructions say you may, in which case the leader will have obtained permission
If you are a dog owner, please see our policy on Dogs on Walks.
Our Strenuous walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. They may include hills and rough country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness should contact the leader in advance.
