Walks are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. All walks start at 10.30 unless otherwise stated.

Walks are normally 5- 6 miles, but we have added some longer walks into our programme- so please check details carefully. We have also added some short walks on Mondays

There is always a warm welcome for new walkers on our walks, However if you haven't been on walks with us before and want to meet up with someone to travel to the walk, please contact Maggie Smith Walks Co-ordinator – see details on the committee page.
