Walks Programme

This page last updated on

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.

If you're looking for a led walk in another area or on another day, try the Ramblers' Walks Finder, or if you're looking for interesting walk routes try the Ramblers' Route Finder.
