Walks Narrative

There are two walking groups and essentially the difference is the long walkers meet every Tuesday and walk between 4-6 miles and approximately 25-45 go.

The short walkers (that’s not their stature by the way) meet every other Tuesday morning and walk between 3-4 miles and approximately 10-20 go.

You are strongly advised to wear good walking gear, particularly waterproof boots in the winter months especially. You should be prepared for climbing over stiles and crossing fields with cattle in.

To help the environment many share travel and make their own arrangements regarding costs. There are no additional club fees for either of the walking groups. Please refer to the walking schedules for the latest walk descriptions.

If you require more information contact Meryl George for the short walks and Derek Green for the long walks.

Short Walk Schedule

Boots are strongly  recommended. If you are unable to make these dates leaders must arrange a swop with someone else on the list. Leaders must inform the group of their  meeting points by the previous walk.

clip-art-walking-448939 The success of the walking group is solely down to Derek’s organisation and the people who lead walks. This success however is at risk because not enough people who do the walks volunteer to lead a walk. In fact there is a strong possibility that some Tuesday’s may not have a leader and the walk will be cancelled. If the burden is shared out the load is eased. If you have not led a walk before contact Derek who will help and advise you.

All walks start from designated start point at  10:30am Prompt.

You MUST contact the leader beforehand to check car park location.
Mud and stiles are to be expected and boots are strongly recommended.
Walks are generally between 4 & 6 miles long.     L = Bring Lunch     FA = Food Available

Car sharing reduces costs and parking problems. Passengers are expected to contribute.
