new Male Walker, 63, based near Nottingham

Message: I live within an hour or so of the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, I regularly walk there and will never tire of exploring it but love Wales, The Lakes and other parts too. I first got the walking bug whilst doing a charity walk in Snowdonia in 1998 (Crib Goch at 4 a.m.) I like walking the hills, valleys and dales as well as the mountain tops and am happy walking anything between three and thirty miles. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just race to the end and am equally happy on a day walk or a few days away, staying in a friendly hotel, a b&b or on a good campsite. However, whilst I really enjoy my walking it would be even more pleasurable with some like minded female company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments with. I am not typical of my age group, far from it, am good fun to walk with, am dependable and, being an ex DofE assessor, am a fairly competent map reader. If you would like to join me or just talk about joining me for walk, get in touch. Chris

Lol I haven't listed all the places that I'm keen to visit because I'm open to any suggestion or challenge, I just love a tough hike with an awe inspiring view at the summit.

new Male Walker, 48, based near Whitby

Message: Hello, I love being in the countryside around where I live just south of Whitby and tend to spend much of my time in this area of the North York Moors and by the sea. However I do, of course, like travelling to other parts of the UK and overseas too! I like any kind of walk, from strenuous walking in the Alps to a leisurely stroll along a wooded valley. I enjoy the route to the destination too, so marching without stopping to admire the scenery is not my idea of a day out! A pub might also be on the itinerary! I am single and would like to find a walking partner to share the views, experiences, etc. Any takers?!!! Adrian

Box: 103753

new Female Walker, 60, based near York

Message: Hello fellow walkers - I am looking for a female walking companion for leisurely walks in the countryside, up to about 6 miles in length, both in my home county of Yorkshire and further afield. I am not looking for a challenge but simply to enjoy the beauty of the countryside and the fresh air, with stops to admire the views and appreciate nature. Also enjoy coastal walks, rivers and canals. Tea and cake at a quaint teashop or even a pub meal would round off the day nicely. Definitely not a sporty individual, although I do enjoy swimming, I have varied interests including reading, the arts particularly theatre and cinema, crafts especially knitting, history and architecture, railways and vintage cars, travel both in the UK and abroad, animals especially cats. I have numerous walking books for my own area and have reasonable map reading skills. As I am now retired, I can walk on some weekdays, as well as on the weekend.

new Male Walker, 55, based near Worcestershire

Message: Hello, my name is Alex, I am a well spoken, well educated male, fit, slim, single, 55 year old, living in a beautiful, rural area of Worcestershire. I received an email a year ago from a chum who is currently backpacking his way around New Zealand, and he was encouraging me to get off my bottom, see more of this island, and perhaps join a walking club. . . . so here I am a few hours later, all signed up to this site! Initially, I would like to gently ease my way back into walking, until full fitness is restored. I regularly used to walk the Malvern Hills, all through the Cotswolds, and have done many, many miles in the West of Ireland when I lived there. I still want to walk my regular walks, but now I have a mind to cast my net wider, in search of some fresh challenges and experiences. My ideal companion who I would like to join me? Female, slim, bright, optimistic, good company, has a sense of direction (as my map reading ability is very rusty). Someone who would be happy to have a few well deserved drinks and a pub meal at the end of the day. I no longer have a dog, so if you do happen to have a four-legged friend who loves the outdoor life, and who of course loves me too, then even better. I have plenty of time on my hands, during the week and at weekends, and I drive, so if you are looking for some genial and intelligent company along the way, perhaps we should make a plan.)

Box: 110119

new Male Walker, 45, based near Kingston Upon Hull

Message: I love anything that involves the great outdoors and particularly keen on skiing and walking. Whilst my body maybe in its 50s, in my mind I'm still in my 20s and tends not to take life as serious as it should! Walking on my own is okay, but I would prefer to share the adventure with someone. I'm no peak bagger or trying to break any records, I just walk for the sheer enjoyment of it. I'm equally happy on leisurely flat or more adventurous strenuous terrain, whether it's a short walk, a full day or something longer, at any time of year, whatever the weather. I've walked mainly in the North Yorkshire with the odd venture over to Cumbria. I'm hoping to walk Helvellyn and Striding Ridge in the winter, one day as I've heard it is unbelievable in the snow. The Dark Peak has been recommended, but have only managed the one venture to Mam Tor, I'm yet to fully appreciate what the region has to offer, hopefully before this summer ends. Working 12 hour shifts is pretty unsociable, and working 2 weekends out of 4, along with most bank holidays whilst it can be a little inconvenient, it does give me free days and the chance to avoid peak weekend crowds.

new Female Walker, 53, based near Washington

Message: Hi, new to the site (joined today) and really not sure what the grades are but erring on the side of the higher few are the ones I'd probably not be able to do, yet! I'm from Washington in Tyne and Wear and enjoy going out walking with my camera, I don't get too far and don't walk much more than 5 miles as always on my own, although I'm ok with my own company, it would be nice to meet someone to go out walking with who knows a few good walks (I'm still new to it all) I'm happy to walk and talk, walk and not talk, Coast or Country, I'm easy either way. More than willing to test Tea Rooms and Pub for a drink and a snack too. I've got a bulging disc in my back but it only affects me if I stand too long! So, Male or Female friends for walking would be lovely. I'm easygoing and friendly and can chat for ever if you let me. So, anyone out there would like to get together for walks please drop me a message and I will get back to you soon. I'm always online so will pick up messages quickly. Oh and happy to go along in a group too if there's any out there. . . . well, that's all from me, chat soon. . . . I hope! Marie :) Aug 2015 update - Currently unable to go walking after breast cancer diagnosis, 3 operations later and still more to do ....hopefully/eventually I will get back to it....

new Male Walker, 43, based near Hull

Message: Hi, my names is Lee from East Yorkshire, I enjoy walking and related challenges. I am currently what can only be described as unfit and out of shape, so my pace isn't great, though not snails pace. . . . . . . gives more of an opportunity to take in the scenery!! With that in mind I did complete Scafell Pike a couple of years ago which was an achievement for me. Looking for potential walking companions of any age or gender who are willing to take a steady pace and not quick March throughout the walk. I'm not looking to climb mount everest nor am I just looking to walk round the corner. Hopefully the more I get our the more I will achieve with improving my fitness levels etc. I do also have a Springer Spaniel who may well want to come along depending where we go. If you think I could be a walking campanile for you please get in touch.

new Male Walker, 27, based near Ross-on-wye

Message: Hi there - my name's Alec and I'm 27yrs old. I currently live in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. I'm an avid outdoors guy looking to develop a new circle of friendship with like-minded individuals - very mature for my age. Happy to walk one-on-one or as part of a group. I'm very sociable and very much enjoy a good challenge. I'm looking for somone to go hiking/trekking with all over the place - not going to restrict myself to one area. I like to 'get away' I must admit. Love to get out and explore and whilst I've not been camping for a while, would certainly do this with the right person/people. Happy to take on all sorts of hikes/treks - whether strenuous or moderate. Am open to travelling to meet etc and vice versa. Am looking for mid-length / long-distance walks - 10 miles +. Am doing the Mountain Trail Challenge in Brecon Beacons on 12/09/15. Am also looking to do the 3 Peaks Challenge next year so need to increase fitness etc. Definitely enjoy good conversation and a drink at the end (or a cheeky pitstop) of a walk to socialise and get to know people better. If you're interested in arranging something, please do get in touch. I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, Alec

Message: I live in North Leeds. Not far from lovely countryside and near to the Dales. I am hoping to meet up with others who enjoy walking. There are numerous walking groups in my area. Large numbers of walkers attend the groups. I do not enjoy walking in an army of 70 or more walkers. I recently attended a walk with 83 people! So I am hoping to develop a cluster of local walking friends. My range from 5 - 10 miles. I work part time and available weekends or midweek. Look forward to hearing from you!

new Female Walker, 53, based near Leicester

Message: Hello, my name is Mags. I've been doing a lot of walking on my own over the last couple of years which, although I enjoy (it gives me thinking space), I'd like someone to share the views with and possibly a pub/tea stop afterwards. So I'm looking for a walking partner - preferably male as I enjoy male company. I love Yorkshire and visit every couple of months - having friends and relatives in the Huddersfield, Wakefield and York areas. I've got my own transport so don't mind travelling to get to a good walk. I'm just as happy doing a couple of miles stroll as I am longer distances. I walked The Cleveland Way last year covering around 10 to 15 miles a day and staying at pubs and B and B's en route and have also (a while ago) walked the Thames path and the Isle of Wight coast path. I love hills/mountains but take them at a steady pace with time for a breather every so often!. I've done Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike but could barely see anything from the top so wouldn't mind doing them again sometime soon and I've done Snowdon 3 times - every time in good weather! Most of my walking is done at weekends as I work full time during the week but could take a day off midweek if I plan ahead. I'd like to do more long distance paths in the future, possibly Hadrian's Wall and the West Highland Way. If you're interested in getting together for a walk please get in touch. I'm happy with distances up to around 15 miles or so and have just signed up for the Thames Path Challenge on 12th September to do 50km for charity...so I need to get some practice in!

Message: I am from south Leicestershire, close to the Northamptonshire boarder. A relative new comer to walking, now in my second year. I can map read and use a compass. I have my own car and can car share. I spent my main holiday last September in the white peak district, it left a great impression with me that I want to discover more. I visited the Goyt Valley Resovoir, Crestbrook Dale, and Man Tor. I will be revisiting the white peaks in September 2015, and am concidering some of the following routes, Stanage Ridge Hathersage, Lose Hill to Man Tor, Millers Dale, Ashford on the Water, Bakewell, Axe Edge, Youlgreave. I have provided a list to give an idea of my maximum ability & and; limitations Most of my walking has been done solo, and I would welcome some company on any of the days walks. My previous interest have been watersports based. But a change in my circumstanes have prevented from continuing this. It is now time to move on and develop a new circle of walking friends. I also walk locally in my other chosen areas, using places like Foxton Locks, The Langtons, Bradgate Park, Hollowell , Sadington, Eyebrooke, Rutland Water. Iam also looking for new ideas for Peak District walking in 2016. Send a message if interested, & and; I will get back to you. . .

new Female Walker, 60, based near Cirencester

Message: Hi I'm Karen. I'm single and now that I work semi-retired I have a lot more time to go walking just for an afternoon or a day (week days and weekends) or for weeks. Short notice I know, but I am walking part of the SW Coast path during the week of Tuesday 1 - Tuesday 8 September 2015 between Dartmouth and Plymouth. I don't mind which bit I do on which day and which direction I go in. I will be camping for the week near Malborough, Salcombe and am aiming to bus/taxi/ferry to the start of each walk leaving my car at the finish or as is possible on 2 sections walk back to my campsite form Hope Cove. Am happy to drive you back to your accommodation or sort out a two car start/finish system with you. I wondered if any of you would like to join me on any of these walks - mostly 8-10 miles sections with one 12 mile. I've walked the Thames Path from my home as I live on the Wiltshire / Gloucestershire borders and part of the South West Coast Path, as well as most of my local walks and many more all over the UK - on my own and many in groups; always much more fun and interesting. I have a car and am happy to travel and go for walks all over the UK and abroad; I will tackle hills; have done Snowdon and other fairly high spots like the Jurassic Coast but my knees now really prefer fewer or shorter or less steep climbs. I love watching for wildlife along the way and would love to share the scenery and enjoyment with male or female friends. Its great to have a bit of a laugh and a chat along the way, especially if interspersed with stop offs for a cuppa or at a pub.

new Female Walker, 45, based near Northampton

Message: Hello, I am single, currently living in the Northamptonshire area and would like to meet male or female walking partners to explore more of the UK. I have unexpected time on my hands over the next few weeks (August 2015) and would especially like to do one or more mid-long distance paths in the Lake or Peak District and also to climb Scafell Pike with some good company. I am open to suggestions and able to travel. I have done a fair amount of walking in far flung places abroad and some here in the UK (Snowdon and Peak District), reasonably fit, can do a bit of scrambling but am not a climber. Am open to BandBs, hostels or possibly camping, though I am not an experienced camper and don't yet have equipment! My map and navigation skills are not good, so would welcome someone with these skills so we don't get hopelessly lost. I am easy going and enjoy cafe's/coffee shops and a country pub but am not a big drinker. If any keen walkers are free in the longer term, but especially in the coming weeks please get in touch.

new Female Walker, 58, based near Glasgow

Message: Hi, I'm in Glasgow, not far from Loch Lomond. I used to be a regular walker in my younger days and I'm looking to get back into the great outdoors but would prefer to do it with some company, so, I am looking for new friends to go walking with. I'm happy doing day walks and would love to try some of our long distance national trails. One of my wishes would be to walk around the whole of the UK, anyone up for that ??? I'm easy going, enjoy new challenges, and always up for a laugh, life's too short to be too serious !!! I love nature and wildlife, love taking photos, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. If you fancy some company on a nice leisurely walk or your up for a bigger challenge get in touch.

Box: 106312

new Male Walker, 42, based near Stockport

Message: I used to spend a lot of time walking in Snowdonia. Recently had a major health scare (Cardiac Arrest) and now looking at pastures closer to home (Peak District etc) to get me back into the walking way. I have lost my fitness and I have an ICD implant [shocking I know ;)]. Ideally looking to walk with someone on some easy walks at first. Someone who can understand my situation (not push me too hard to begin with) and my fears (probably only psychological). I used to be pretty fit and game for anything but need to be a bit careful for a while until I feel comfortable again. I have car.
