 We are keen to promote car sharing and either the walk leader or the walks coordinator will assist when possible in reducing the number of vehicles travelling to the start of walks by arranging car sharing. ​Phone numbers and e-mail addresses are shown on the back of the programme. For more details of how we run our club please click on the Information tab on the menu bar above to read the FAQs. If you want to locate the start of any walk click on the grid reference in red on the walk description to the right of this column to open up a map window. 

The social side of our group is important. We hold an annual summer BBQ after a walk and some members are part of the "Walking Diners" and go out for meals from time to time in an evening.  Quite often after a walk you will find us calling at a cafe, ice cream parlour or pub before we head off home. Two or three times every year we organise walking holidays for our active members - both in UK and abroad.

If you would like come on a "taster walk" you can either telephone or e-mail us on the link below or just turn up. Weekend walks can vary between around five and twelve miles in length so check your ability and look at the ascent and grading (Easy, Moderate or Challenging). This is always indicated in the programme. To view the programme click the green button on the bottom right of this page.  If you enjoy your first walk and come again the annual subscription for 2017 of £7 is due on your second walk. This helps offset our expenses and keep this website going. Our group is affiliated to the Ramblers and we strongly support their aims and objectives. We hold civil liability insurance to help protect our leaders and members.
