Walking Club Programme

2017 Walks & Club Information

We have now established a 2nd website through Meetup. This gives more detailed information about our Sunday walks and other events and if you join you can become part of our Meetup community, let us know which walks you are joining, and give feedback about our walks. You can also post photos that you have taken during walk which helps everyone to remember the occasion.


Below is a list of the walks and events in our programme. Please note that you can try out our walks but we do need to you to join our group if you are coming to more than 3 walks. This is partly for insurance purposes, but you will also get a full syllabus and regular newsletters in the post. Application forms can be downloaded - here
