Saturday Long Walk Programme


Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we had suspended our programme of group walks.

Following reintroduction of rules affecting groups of 6, a programme of walks observing social distancing and other advisory guidelines, see Advice to Walkers, has commenced as from 3rd October. Numbers will be limited at the leaders’ discretion, a single group of 6 or 2 x groups of 6, and it is required that all must book onto the walk, this is to enable the keeping of a record of those on the walk as required by Covid rules, last minute decisions will be deemed normal but please check availability as walks may become full. All walks will be circular to give the option on travel.

Please do not contact leaders direct as Covid Rules require that we keep a full record of those on any walk. In order to book a place on a walk, please email
