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.

Members and walkers are reminded that they attend walks in this programme at their own risk and that they are responsible for their own personal safety.

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.

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