I am a Male Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Gillingham hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I'm Paul and I started walking during the first Covid lockdown to improve my physical health and mental well-being.

I had also hoped it would reduce my waistline, but I like my food too much. Fitness has improved, but weight loss is still a work in progress. I have recently started indoor cycling as well to burn some more calories and wouldn't mind going for a bike ride either.

I've increased my walking distance over time and can now comfortably manage up to 10 miles a day and continuing to increase this further.

I've only walked around Kent so far and would like to walk further afield and see as much of the UK and beyond as possible. I'm self employed so pretty flexible when it comes to when I can walk and I drive, so travelling to meet up for walks is no problem.

I'm up for an adventure or challenge and equally like walking along the coast or in the countryside. Day walks, weekend walks, camping or backpacking are fine by me. Picnic stops to admire the views and visiting places of interest along the way, followed by a nice pub at the end of the day are some of my favourite things. I like most genres of music, have a wicked sense of humour and am very easy going.

If you would like some company on a walk or bike ride, please get in touch.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; Southern Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

A bit more about me:

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. With regard to the weather, this is the UK so it's going to rain sooner or later isn't it? Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Peak Bagging - where the aim is to climb all the hills or mountains on a particular list such as 'bagging' all the Wainwrights or Munros;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;
  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Lichfield And Lincoln hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I'm semi retired and live near Lincoln. I love the outdoors and love to spend my time walking, running and even gardening. Anything to be outside. I'm also lucky to have a narrowboat near Lichfield and enjoy chugging along the midlands canals. I do most of my walking on the Lincolnshire Wolds and in the Peak District, but would like to explore more. I have also walked in the Lakes, Wales and Scotland. My partner is not really interested in my love of walking and not that keen on cruising the canals. I do a lot of walking on my own but would enjoy some company, ideally someone who loves being outdoors like me and who doesn't mind a bit of weather. My work pattern varies so I can be free mid week and weekends too.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;

Important: For the avoidence of doubt I am definitely not looking for anything other than someone to go walking with.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Rugby hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi! I'm Andy. Having recently taken early retirement I want to spend as much time as possible walking and exploring our beautiful country (and abroad, when we're allowed!), something I didn't have enough time to do when I was working. I often walk alone, but it would be good to have company sometimes, especially on trips further afield and multiday walks. I go walking midweek (Monday to Thursday) which might fit your schedule if you work shifts or at weekends.

A perfect walk for me is one where you can constantly look around in awe at fantastic scenery, so I tend to gravitate towards hillwalking, mountains and coasts. I am reasonably fit and may walk up to 13 miles in a day, but I always look at the quality of the walk rather than the length, so often walk shorter distances. A perfect walk should also have some food and a couple of beers built in, either during or afterwards (preferably both!)

My day-walking in the past few years has been in the Peak District and The Cotswolds, as they are fairly local to me, but with longer trips to Snowdonia and Scotland. However, I am a confident navigator and am looking forward to exploring other areas of the country. I am a fan of staying in nice pubs with rooms when away from home for a night or two.

A bit more about me:

When it comes to Scrambling & Edges I'm OK with the occasional edge or scramble but don't go looking for it. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have a car.

I am a Qualified Ramblers Holidays Walk Leader.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Midlands hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I'd like to meet people to share adventures with, especially walking, kayaking and mountain biking. I love walking and biking in the Peak District, Lake District and the South West and am exploring Scotland. I've done some kayaking in the South West and would love to explore other coasts, lakes and rivers. I also love sailing. I would especially like to meet someone to share winter walking adventures on snow and ice.

I would like to meet other enthusiastic, outdoorsy, down to earth people who like exploring and who care for the countryside they love so much. I have walked in the Alps and Pyrenees and would love to explore further. Sitting and contemplating scenery and peace, especially at sunrise or sunset, when warm enough, as well as a bit of outdoor swimming is a lovely thing to do amongst the activity.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Birmingham hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi,

Just discovered this site.

I have recently started walking again to help stay healthy. Not done anything too challenging yet and I am as happy strolling round a village as I am going over the hills.

I tend to get on better with younger people and for some reason most of my friends are female. I'd like to think I am good company and at the very least I can keep up a conversation. Very ok with a bit of companionable silence as well.

I am an active volunteer so I don't have immense amounts of free time but I want to keep walking and company is the best motivation. :)

My Message: Hi
I'm Dan 69 years old, semi retired and looking for a walking friend,
Have a P.L.B. but they do not make very good walking companions, I do any kind of walks from short walks published by the R.S.P.B.and other organisations, or cut out of magazines by friends, to 8 to 10 mile circular walks, I don't do national trails or peak bagging,.
I like remote mountain walks and moorland walks, I use off the peg circular walks mostly, but like to plan and research my own walks as well, I like to follow rivers across open moorland to their source My other interests are driving on mountain passes, train trips and visiting museums.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Burnley hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi I like to mix up my walks so vary the level, length and area where I can. I'm not as fit as I used to be but have walked long distance routes in this country and explored lots of areas of mainland Spain. I don't mind walking in groups but enjoy 1:1 walking to be able to determine the pace better as I enjoy nature and going out with my camera (a fairly new hobby). I work full time so walking is usually limited to weekends but that's not to say I'm averse to meeting up during the week.
I enjoy the simple things in life like catching up with friends over a drink in the pub, a dance or two (not clubbing it - I'm a bit old for that!) and meals out. I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music, going to live events and theatre. I'm a true believer in laughter being the best medicine - second to that fresh air and the outdoors.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Glasgow hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I live in Glasgow, with my border collie Rannoch, 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.
In the past I did the West Highland Way three times, The Great Glen Way once. Nowadays I'm a lot slower but I find that a good thing as it means I'm out in the green stuff longer.
I'm easy going, enjoy new challenges, and always up for a laugh, life's too short to be too serious !!!
I have a wee camper van and love wandering. I like to play guitar, love nature, wildlife, taking photos, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Bishop Auckland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi! I have enjoyed hill walking since my childhood - It gives me a sense of freedom, space and challenge. I feel that it helps me refuel my inner strength to deal with anything during the working week. I moved up to Bishop Auckland in 2010 because of my love of the scenery. I walked the Pennine Way 30+ years ago and always enjoy revisiting bits of it. More recently I've completed the Dales Way, WHW, Great Glen Way, Dava Way,C2C,Offa's Dyke Path & Isaac's Tea Trail and hoped to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020 but didn't!!. In June 2021 I completed Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in 11.5hrs for Alzheimer's Society (that's me on the right of the photo). I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club (which I help run) and am free many weekends and during the school holiday times.I am a musician who teaches in County Durham schools and at the Sage Gateshead. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2022!! Andy

When it comes to Scrambling & Edges I'm OK with the occasional edge or scramble but don't go looking for it. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Malvern hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello. I'm looking for a walking partner for local, regional or even national walks. Maybe also overseas! I've recently moved to the Malvern Hills area where there are many interesting walks over hills and through woods, so do come and visit! I enjoy all kinds of walking, from low level meandering along a wooded valley to scrambling in the Lake District. I also like camping, in the right weather (!), and cycling.

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

A bit more about me:

I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;
  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Holywell hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi I am Rog looking for a lady to join me on walks in the countryside. My passion is wildlife and walks anywhere in the countryside or along the coast. My other passion is out on my bike places like the Llyn Brenig the Alwen Reservoir and a nice picnic, not into road cycling. My Wife was sadly taken from me two years ago and has left a big hole in my life. We were both volunteers at a local nature reserve and that played a big part in our lives. I now feel that I need to get out there and get back walking. We have done 13 of the 14 3,000ft peaks in the Snowdon area and the Highest mountains in all four countries of the UK, and lots more peaks in the lakes. But I now have to keep to the lower ones now.I would like to meet someone that is like minded and join me on some outings. I have no ties have my own home and car and am free when I want to be.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
Wales;

A bit more about me:

I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. With regard to the weather, this is the UK so it's going to rain sooner or later isn't it? Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Mountain Biking

Box No: 207165

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near Telscombe Cliffs hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I want to meet people that like a good walk and laugh near me in Sussex, though happy to travel a bit further.
Ideally I would like to go early and get at least 5 to 10 miles in, though happy to go on longer walks too. I have been walking for years and did the 100km London to Brighton walk a few years ago. I can walk weekends and evenings when it's light. I would say I have an average fitness level which I want to improve with these walks.
I work full time and love reading, traveling, hanging out with friends, dancing the night away and walking. I also love to laugh and would love to meet someone similar to do this with while walking. Most of my friends will do the odd walk but not regularly and not much more than a few miles. I want to go more regularly, hence the post.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
South East England;

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive and have a car.

I am also interested in:

  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;

Important: For the avoidence of doubt I am definitely not looking for anything other than someone to go walking with.

Box No: 98512

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Stoke On Trent hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm a recently retired 62 year old living in the Staffordshire Moorlands. I moved here when I retired as I enjoy walking in the Peak District so much but also enjoy walking in other areas. Location isn't too important as I am prepared to travel to meet for a walk.

I am fit and competent and enjoy a challenging walk or an easy walk and I like to take in the views whichever. I am open to any level of walk as it's sometimes good to just get out and it's always good to find a good pub or cafe at the end. As well as walking I also enjoy running and cycling although I can just enjoy being outdoors watching and listening. It's the simple things in life that appeal to me most.

As much as I enjoy the outdoors it is by no means everything to me. I enjoy listening to a lot of music having a very broad taste and especially like live music but not in big venues. I also enjoy cinema and theatre or just having a chat in a café or pub with friends.

It would be great to share the outdoors and other things with a like minded woman though I have a very inquisitive mind and I'd be more than happy to be introduced to new interests.

My boring details are I'm single with no children or any other ties. I'm 5'8" and slim/average build.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Nottingham hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I live close to the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally love walking in Wales, The Lakes, Yorkshire, Northumbria 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 good company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments. I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. My other interests are landscape photography, art, windsurfing, city breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Southampton hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Not ready for old age yet! I miss male company. Sadly my male friends are unwell, not able to go walking.Which is why I'd like to walk with a male friend who, like me, is interested in the state of the world, is curious, can see the funny side of life, who is respectful and considerate of self and others. Who is comfortable with meaningful conversation and silence...and anything in between.
In the past I've walked in Norway and Andalusia....locally in the forest, on beaches, South Downs.

I'm not solely into getting to a destination, love stops to take in my surroundings, maybe with a coffee or small snack?
I'd like to explore Wild places in Uk or elsewhere...maybe camping, wild swimming. Don't rule out a city walk. Locally or further afield. I would like to be guided by someone else's ideas or experiences.
I know about myself that I can get overenthusiastic and overdo it..
so would like to communicate clearly about where we are going and what it entails.
Over the last few years have not done much walking so am building strength and stamina which i Really want to do! Plus very important at my time of life!!!!
I work three days a week with long holidays and a lot of flexibility.
My hobbies are people, the Arts, live music, reading, films (series during lock down!)international, community, nature, acting to save our planet from the mess we've made!

My Message: Greetings!
I'm looking for anyone planning to walk up Helvelyn on Saturday or Scafell Pike on Sunday - either or both vice versa, depending on the weather and wind of course! Currently set to attempt both alone however would much prefer a walking buddy at this time of year! After running my first marathon last month my legs are itching for something big to climb!
