new Female Walker, 65, based near West Lancashire

Message: For me there is nothing quite like spending time outdoors in the fresh air, enjoying the scenery and wildlife for getting the most valued exercise for keeping fit and young as the years advance. Good company, a picnic lunch and a refreshing cuppa to round off the day, what better way to spend some of those retirement days. If you would like to join me for a walk please do get in touch.

Box: 111915

new Male Walker, 66, based near Aylesbury

Message: Hello, I am retired and single with plenty of time to indulge my love of walking. I walk sometimes alone and sometimes with local walking groups. I would very much like to expand on that by finding a new friend or friends to walk with on a one to one basis. I live in Aylesbury so the Chilterns are on my doorstep but I am more than happy to try other areas. Recent walking holidays were in Wales and Yorkshire and I was born and raised near the Lake District. I am more interested in spending time in the outdoors, stopping to enjoy the views and ending in a pub, than in ticking off particular challenges. A typical walk for me would be between 6 and 12 miles. More than that on a good day! If that sounds good to you drop me a line and we can take it from there. Brian

new Male Walker, 62, based near Near Derby

Message: Hey, just looking for walking companions. Living close to the Peak district, this is where I do most of my walking and my picture here was taken on Win Hill with Ladybower reservoir just visible in the background. I usually walk around 8_10 miles, but don't mind short walks too and like to take in the scenery, photography playing a big part of my memories. I have visited many of our walking areas and really enjoyed them, in particular the Long Mynd, Pembroke coast and Lake District have fond memories for me .In summer I delight in packing my things onto my motor bike and heading off to Devon. At the moment, September 2017, I have covered around 60 miles of the south west coast path in various stages over the past few years adding a few with each visit and what a journey the SWCP can be... As well as lifting your spirits it has amazing scenery, tough but rewarding walking and often those little places that time has forgot. At the end of a walk I find nothing to beat a hearty pub meal and a pint. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Box: 103753

new Female Walker, 60, based near Thirsk

Message: Hello fellow walkers - I am looking for a female walking companion for leisurely walks in the countryside, around about about 6 miles or so 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.

Box: 111881

new Female Walker, 73, based near Bolton

Message: Am a late in life transgender female currently in transition. Hope that doesn't put you off. I walk about 1 and a half miles each morning with my dogs before breakfast plus other walks plus mountain bike rides and competitions. Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings are taken by voluntary work with Wheels for All in Bolton. Some weekends am committed to helping trail running events. In my former life, have been an outdoor instructor, Orienteer (on foot and mountain bike) , teacher and cycle retailer. Enjoy the countryside, food and wine. Feel younger than my numerical age though hormone treatment has reduced strength. Perhaps my past dysphoria was a factor in being uncomfortable in a group - not been happy within a large walking group. Getting better riding with the Saddleworth Rough Stuff Cycling group. Hoping to find female companions, preferably dog friendly, to share my walks.

new Male Walker, 66, based near Nottingham

Message: I live within an hour of the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally 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'm happy walking on hilltops and along valleys, canals, rivers and dales as well as mountain tops. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just race to the end, what would make my day complete though is some cheerful, like minded female company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments. I'm chilled, have a quick wit, great sense of humour and am good fun to walk with. I'm dependable too and, being an ex DofE assessor, I'm a fairly competent map reader. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me I'd love to hear from you. I can promise you an enjoyable day out. Chris

Message: Hi, my name is Ian and I am looking for some female company to enjoy day's out walking in the great hills in Britain and beyond if possible! I have been walking in the hills for many years and although walk often on my own, would love to have some company to share great days, views, chat, a good laugh and possibly a pint afterwards. I live near Chesterfield so the Peak District which is where I walk most often but love going further afield too, to the Lakes and Scotland sometimes. When I'm not walking I love day rides out on my motorbike too, and to have some company for that would be great as well. Anyway if you fancy meeting up please get in touch and hopefully we can have a great time together rather than being on our own. Hopefully see you soon.

new Male Walker, 57, based near Amersham

Message: I'm based in S Bucks but love the mountains and hills: Peaks, Dartmoor, Beacons, Shropshire hills, mid-Wales, N and S Downs. I can get to them all in no more than three hours, have a great day's walking, and home again - as long as I'm out of the car for more than I'm in it, that's OK. If you'd like to meet for a walk in these or any other (not too flat) regions, and are looking for friendship and company, I'd love to hear from you. I've recently (2017) taken to my tent again after many years, so a bike ride with tent turns into a splendid adventure. The Lakes, Snowdonia, and Scotland are the real draws though, especially in winter conditions. I've been up to the far NW and the W and Central Highlands for the last few years and love them. And the Alps of course, and Arctic Norway! I like mountains and hills. I walk among them and try to ski (downhill and touring) them, and recently mountain bike through them to save my legs when getting to the more remote ones. Try imagining the peaks and valleys under a kilometre of ice shaping the Lakes or Highlands into the dramatic wild places they can be today! Until recently, I worked right in the middle of London which was enjoyable and different; I live at the end of a Tube line with a usually-muddy field-and-woods walk to my local station. But I've made the move (end 2015) to working from home, in my own time, so I'm freed from the weekends-only bids for the outdoors. Oh, and my name is Robert.

new Male Walker, 48, based near Guiseley (Leeds)

Message: Although I do enjoy short single day walks, I prefer when possible to do a full weekend or longer multi day when ever get the chance. I've never used B&B, preferring instead to use either Youth hostels/bunk barns, as I find them super friendly places & certainly much better value for money. Over the years I've always walked alone as I find this allows me to use my good map reading skills to plan my own routes & walk at my own pace. As well as using the hostels I usually always carry full camping equipment when away too as this allows me the option to walk & finish when & where ever I please on a night. Although I'll always meet others while on route walking, it still tends to get a bit boring sometimes & I often wish I'd someone else to chat to. I tried group walking with a club once, but although I found it very friendly I don't think it's quite what I'm looking for. I'd like to meet another walker of around the same age & ability, who's also into my style of walking & who's also got quite a reasonable amount of spare time on their hands. Due to carrying a large 75-10 rucksack & all this eqp't on multi day walks I'm not looking for the kind of routes where you scramble up a steep mountain side like a squirrel on steroids! only to give myself cardiac arrest on reaching the summit - can't see any fun in that!!! Quite happy to walk in all weather conditions & any time of the year. Also happy to camp anywhere when needed, although I usually try & finish near civilisation & a pub on a night. All the best; Steven.

Message: Newly retired and desperate to get out and see more of the country, I love travel and get away when I can but a little local knowledge is always welcome to find the best walks. I love dramatic scenery and there's not a lot in Suffolk, I have a little campervan which is a bit basic but I'm an expert camper, as I spend most of my time away out walking it suits me fine and gives me freedom, my family mostly live in Dorset and I am there quite often, I've just returned from walking round the Lizard Peninsular which was great

Female Walker, 63, based near Southport

Message: I would love to hear from local walkers/hikers. Hi, I'm a happy, independent woman. I'm slim and fit and intend to stay that way!. I love driving particularly on the continent and I am happy to travel in the UK in search of a good walk. I'm a keen walker with many other interests including travel (preferably off the beaten track). I recently visited Siberia and China and got the 'bug' for more far-flung places. I have walked in Southern France and Nothern Spain. La Gomera, a couple of years ago, was a great location to walk/hike in. As was the beautiful island of Crete last year. However, there are still plenty of stunning places in our own country I have yet to explore. I particularly love walking in Snowdonia. I did Snowdon via Crib Goch a while ago and very much enjoyed that experience. Also the magestic,Tryfan is a favourite. But in my book, any walk, long or short hard or not so, in congenial company, is a walk well worth doing. I would love to hear from male fellow walkers who enjoy the great outdoors, a laugh along the way and of course, well earned pint after! UPDATE... 2014. Hiking in spring time in Cabo De Gata Southern Spain. August 2014. Avoiding wild bears while in the Sayan mountains in Southern Siberia.....Northern Spain, Italy....just a few of the highlights of 2014. Intending to cap that in 2017 ( ambitious, maybe! ) Christine.

Message: Hi, my name is Trish and I'm looking for companions to share my passion for walking. I think I'm reasonably fit, enjoying distances between 8-12 miles. I have just returned from a walking holiday in the Azores, which certainly put my fitness to the test as it was pretty challenging at times, but I'm delighted to say I survived, albeit a little weary by the end of the week :-o But what an amazing place it is... The island of Sau Miguel is a walker's paradise, which I really do recommend and I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed. I'm a very sociable and fun loving person who likes to laugh, so I do like a good sense of humour; although I have to admit, I'm really not a huge joke lover. I usually walk with friends at weekends, although not every weekend as they are not always available. However, as I'm lucky enough to be retired I am usually free during the week. I live approximately 40 minutes from the Lower Peaks (Ashbourne) where I love to walk but I enjoy anywhere with beautiful scenery, especially if there is water close by too. My idea of heaven is walking and the only sounds you can hear are those of the birds singing or the gentle rippling of water. I'm trying to master the art of map reading and not doing too badly but think I may still have a little more to learn, so if you are an expert that would be great as I couldn't guarantee I wouldn't get you lost! ;-) I do drive but don't particularly want to drive miles (unless it is for a weekend, or more) therefore perhaps about an hour. Thank you for reading my info and if you like what you've read then please send me a message :-)
