Walking for the pleasure and enjoyment of the countryside.
Our walks are normally circular & start at 10.00 am. Monday walks are usually about 2 hours and around 4 miles. Sunday walks may be a bit longer at 5-6 miles.

We ask walkers to comply with any Covid precautions being recommended by the Government at the time. We may also put in place any additional measures we feel appropriate for your safety and the safety of others. Names and contact details of all walkers will be taken and recorded by the walk leader.
Please do not attend any club events if you are feeling unwell, have any Covid symptoms, have tested positive or should be self isolating. Please be sure to let us know if you test Covid positive shortly after attending a walk.
Well behaved dogs, on a short lead are welcome, unless stated otherwise in the walk description.
