Please note; The days of our mid week evening walks planned for 2023 will be changed and will alternate between Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Also although Denise is our walks co-ordinator please notify John Freeman as soon as possible if you would like to lead a walk on a specific date.  The location and details of the proposed walks should be sent to Jean Pritchett approximately 3 weeks before the relevant date so that full details can be shown on the website.  


Sunday walks.  These walks normally start at about 11 a.m. for a distance of between 5 and 10 miles depending on the walking conditions  and walkers normally travel to the starting point by car so can be further afield..  

Evening walks:  These walks normally start in the early evening and are closer to home.  Walking distance is normally up to 6 miles depending on walking conditions and hours of daylight.
