The Society provides a comprehensive programme of guided walks and social events throughout the year. The walks are a mixture of short walks of about 4 miles duration and longer walks which are normally between 8-10 miles in length. These are held both midweek and at weekends although it is usual for the longer walks to take place at a weekend. The Walks programme for the present month is below and the complete schedule is published in Waymark.
Because of the lack of light in the evenings, the winter programme runs from the 1st September until the 30th April. During this time, all walks are held during the daytime with no evening walks taking place.
The summer walk period runs from 1st May to 31st August. The walks are often held in the evenings and they usually commence at 6.30pm but the actual start time will be decided by the walk leader.
Regular social events are arranged in both the winter and summer months.
Because of the requirements laid down by the Society's insurers, dogs, while often welcome on our walks, do have to be kept under control at all times. Walk leaders may request that they are kept on a lead.
Start times vary: please check for each walk.
You walk with us at your own risk and are responsible for your own health & safety issues.
Please arrange to share cars to minimise parking space used. Do not leave any items visible and nothing of value in parked cars. Bring your own picnic lunches and drinks especially for the longer walks.
For enquiries about specific walks and walk details e.g. meeting point, hills, mud or stiles, telephone the walk leader for more information. The full calendar is in the latest edition of Waymark.
If you come across a problem on a right-of-way please inform the Footpath Secretary, Kelvin, as soon as possible, using the form on the next page.
