Walking Group

The Walking Group normally meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month and details of the planned walk are always published in the bulletin in advance.

There is currently a ‘core group’ of regular walkers but anyone is welcome to come along to join us and you do not need to commit to regular attendance.


Our walks range between 5 to 12 miles and we try to vary the length and difficulty of the walks from month to month in order to try to cater for all abilities and interests. Suggestions for new walks are always welcome.

We are a very relaxed and sociable group and walks normally end at a local hostelry
