Social Walks

Each walk is led by one of our members. Clear meeting directions are provided for each one. Sometimes we finish with lunch at a pub or café, other times we suggest that you bring a picnic. No need to pre-book, just turn up and you’ll be made very welcome. The walks are free for members, with a small fee charged for guests.

All walks are on Tuesdays starting at 10.30am; distances are approximate
