Saturday Long Walk Programme


Whilst we have reintroduced our Walk Programme, a programme of walks observing social distancing and other advisory guidelines, see Advice to Walkers, there are still changes which may affect the continuing programmes. 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 check that you are eligible to walk in our groups, any member living in a Tier 3 or 4 area is not permitted to travel out of that area for recreational purposes, additionally, on this basis, we are not permitted to walk into Wales currently.

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
