I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near L37 North West hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Tony I am still in full time work, so i want to make the most any days off. I am easy going and have a positive outlook on life, my glass isn't half full, it's over flowing! 🙂

I love being outdoors in the fresh air.

I have massively neglected my leisure time in recent years, so I'm now looking to do a bit of catching up. I am fit and have been blessed with good health.

I am told I am good company and fun to be with.
If there is a lady out there who enjoys walking/ cycling and non to heavy conversation, who just enjoys the lighter side of life, then Hi, I would love to meet up and set off walking and enjoy our great countryside and coastal paths.

My ideal walk would always end with a bite to eat and go on a twist my arm, a glass of wine, But I can also sit and have a coffee and just enjoy the views, it's just so much nicer to share them with a companion.
I would also love to venture to pastures new and get some use out of my new passport, post
lockdown of course!
Take care and hopefully speak soon 🙂

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. 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 like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. Sadly, my map reading & navigation skills are pretty hopeless. 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;
  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking

By putting my profile on here I am hoping to meet someone special.

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

My Message: Does there happen to be anyone within easy striking distance of Havering or Hainult Country Park?

Last year I moved from Cheshire to a Romford postcode. Fortunately there are a number of country parks within easy reach of my new home and I've been getting to know them with my small dog as a companion. But it would be lovely to get out and about with a human companion. I've joined Essex wildlife Trust to try to learn a little about this area.

In what seems to be the increasingly the distant past I have been lucky enough to walk in the mountains of Snowdonia and Scotland, the coastal paths of Wales, and routes in the Lake and Peak Districts, but always with a walk leader. I am not so confident on my own, despite once belonging to an orienteering club, where I learned not to trust my navigation, more miss than hit!

It is important to me to get outdoors, I was volunteering with the local nature conservancy but that stopped early in the year due to covid 19. I have enjoyed working in my small back garden though, including making a hibernaculum after finding a resident toad.

I haven't been on a mountain walk since 2016 and in the last two years, apart from some coastal working in North Wales, walking has meant dog walking and I probably haven't been out for longer than 2 - 3 hours. My current hope is to meet someone local to here for regular walks and then to explore further afield.

A bit more about me:

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs and will bring my own. 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:

  • Off Road Easy Cycling

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

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for pleasant, easy going male or female walking friends preferably located in The Midlands, but not limited to this area as I'm more than willing to travel for an adventurous day out. Someone who loves the outdoors and likes to have a gentle chat, someone who can listen as well as talk, who has a good sense of humour and who isn't averse to a bit of adventure. I love to take advantage of the lighter evenings in the Spring and Summer to walk locally (within a 20ish miles radius) during the week. I work a couple of days a week, but can fit in daytime walks on other weekdays and at weekends. Happy to discuss any possibilities. It would be great to hear from you. Best wishes and happy walking, Mo (Maureen).

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Near Skipton hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi all,

I'm Lee, a mid-forties male, and I would like to meet new walking friends, male or female to spend time walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside and just being outdoors.

I enjoy both multi-day, long distance paths and less strenuous steady walks too. Oddly enough my walks usually end at a nice country pub or two!
I'm experienced at map reading and navigating, although that doesn't necessarily mean I always finish the walk at the intended time!
Sometimes I'll take a lightweight tent and camp and make it an outdoors weekend or a B&B etc.
My 'bread and butter' walking area is the Settle-Carlisle railway, but I'm equally happy anywhere in the quiet countryside.

I work part-time; so I've some availability on a weekday and also some weekends too. If you want someone to walk with who ( probably!) won't get you lost and has a good sense of humour, that would be me! Do drop me a line..

  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;
  • 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;

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

My Message: Hi, John here. Hoping to meet like-minded people/person to spend a few hours, or even a few days with.
I enjoy walking in any type of environment, followed by a beer or two after a good slog. I have walked in most National Parks, and walked up a few mountains. My navigational skills are above average and I always plan the route before setting off. With some notice, I am able to reach for the walking boots almost anytime.
I am more than happy to teach navigation skills to anyone.
I have no walking ambitions, I just love to get out and enjoy the view. So, if you wish to spend a couple of hours, or longer with me, please let me know.

I love the outdoors, walking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, coasteering, gorge walking.....the list goes on!
I have a campervan that I have just converted and, as I'm self-employed, I am able to go anywhere, at any time (almost). I like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).
Just spent 5 days in Matlock which was great. The weather not so, but I got some good walks in. It's just a shame nobody could share the enjoyment with me.

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

My Message: Having finally had a hip replacement in March, it's time to get to the hills again. My hope is to meet with one or two other individuals for varied walks in the Peak District as it's straight out of the door for me. I would also enjoy Snowdonia and
the Scottish parks but I guess these places will have to wait for now given the Covid situation.
As I work as a freelance consultant, my availability varies from 'hardly ever' when I'm on contract to 'every day' between contracts. My objective is not route marching up as many peaks a possible but to enjoy the vistas and peace that the hills offer; happy to stop for views, geology and history. I'd simply like to enjoy our great outdoors!

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

My Message: I just love walking and want people to go walking and to socialise with. If we can get a good weather day and a view, all the better. I'd be happy to meet up with men or women for a day's walk, anytime soon. At least it's something we can still do at this time. (However, I'd be keen to meet a man who shares my love of walking)
I've walked the whole of the SWCP, circuit of the Isle of Wight, the South Downs Way and the Cotswold Way. I love walking in the Lake District and would love to do the Coast to Coast. Am also trying to the Wessex Ridgeway in single day trips from home. But I also love a blow on the Marlborough Downs or just an amble along the canal. Tea or a pub meal at the end is a bonus.
I'm retired and don't have any regular commitments except Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings at the moment. I play tennis but don't want to appear super fit, just normal for a walker in her early 60's! Am happy to travel to meet up with someone and hope it might be you.

My Message: Fit active gay women (just saying so it's not awkward) wishing to meet like minded either gay or heterosexual women. I am happiest when I am walking up a hill. I love that feeling when you reach your destination, take a pew and look back down at the beauty of your surroundings. People are far far away below, the traffic is else where and you can hear the silence........magical!!

Unfortunately none of my friends like to do more arduous walks. I have walked on my own for years...well not exactly alone. I have always had a dog. I would love to walk with others who are as passionate as me about walking in the hills.

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'm happy to walk in most weathers but do not like snow and ice. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. 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;

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 mid 60s, based near Exeter hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm coming up to Semi retirement and looking for a hiking "buddy" to have some fun and adventures with. Not my wifes cup of tea and although I have done plenty of solo hikes I now prefer some company.Dartmoor is my local playground and I often do day and multi day hikes there. Am looking to complete some LDP's in U.K. and further afield. Love to backpack and camp and carry all my gear.

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. 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;
  • 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;
  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding

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 late 50s, based near Basingstoke hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I now work part time so have plenty of time to go walking locally and nationally. I am friendly and reliable and like to chat on a walk.

I am looking for people who love walking and are looking for someone to join them. I would like to meet someone who is also interested in walking some of our long distance paths. Sometimes we need a bit of motivation and encouragement and it is always better to have some company and support. Distance and speed are not that important. I equally enjoy local half day walks in the south of England to all day challenges in the mountains. But, it's always nice to end up in a country pub at the end of the day.

I am a reasonable map reader and whilst generally cautious by nature, I am fairly confident in the mountains. I have a car so can travel as necessary. I like to chat about about most things and it would be a bonus if you had a good sense of humour too. I'll try to respond to all responses.

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

My Message: Do you crave to get out in the hills? Can you get to the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains?

If so, then I'd love to meet!

I live about an hour's drive from the Brecons and am looking for some like-minded people to get out and explore with. Sadly, my closest friends live in the north, where I used to live, and Covid has made even occasional walking holidays a challenge, so I'm either walking alone or dragging my (sometimes willing, sometimes not so much) partner out with me.

In terms of fitness levels and navigation - I've never done crampons or climbing, so not ultra-intrepid, but I'm happy enough tackling several Brecon summits in a day with reasonable visibility. I've done Snowdon, Cadair Idris and a fair few of the Lakeland mountains. I'm still learning compass work but quite good at interpreting an OS map.

A bit of general stuff about me: I'm an Aussie by birth but lived here most of my adult life. I work part-time (I'm a web editor for a national health organisation) and could usually meet Mondays, Fridays or on the weekend. In terms of hobbies and interests, I've just finished a masters in creative writing and also do some voluntary work with men who have experienced mental health problems. I love bike riding, reading, good films and TV.

Oh and I love dogs but don't own one, so if you bring one on our walks: bonus!!

If any of this sounds like you, please get in touch.

My Message: Hi, I'm Sally, single, retired, with time and energy to walk. Keen to meet a single, fit, friendly guy to help map read, who likes to stop and admire the views. I've trekked the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca, part of the SWCP in Cornwall, Isle of Skye and The North Atlas Mountains, Morocco. Closer to home - The New Forest,The Monach's Way, South Downs, Clarendon Way (25 miles in one hit) Usually 10 miles a day is fine by me! Join local walking groups but prefer to walk with a friend.
Free to walk anywhere here or abroad in an area with some interest or beauty, with a pub or cafe at the end. Pretty adventurous, don't do bleak or freezing tho'! Would like to be introduced to some new areas. Interested in completing SWCP in doable chunks.
Other interests include: cycling, kayaking, sailing, coastal walks are great, love being by the sea, music, live gigs, anything arty, local exhibitions or performances on route.

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

My Message: I'm hoping to meet a female companion to travel the world for two years plus, taking in national trails. My plan is to start Spring 2021 in the UK on the South West Coast Path, then where ever we choose, COVID permitting, hopefully moving to Europe at a later date. I've been walking in the Lake District, Scotland, Snowdonia and a section of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
I'm walking some evenings(short), weekdays(medium) and weekends(longer). I am working 2-3 days a week at the moment. My interests are local history, Nature and Photography. As well as Europe I'd like to take in The Pacific Crest Trail in the USA and The Bibbulmun Trail in Australia. All this on a tight budget which I believe is achievable with the use of Workaway and Trusted house sitters.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 70s, based near Worcestershire hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: 
Hello fellow walkers! I've always enjoyed walking - I'm energetic, a reasonable pace, whilst absorbing nature along the way suits me perfectly. I fill my weekdays, week- ends suit me well.
Due to illness and circumstances my regular walking friends are unable to join me. I'm not being adventurous or pushing myself now the days are shorter and cooler. I love all the seasons, tho' autumn's my favourite. There is a joy in being outdoors with good conversation sharing the love of nature- invigorates, whilst exchanging ideas and learning, some laughter too- would be nice to share all these delights with someone likeminded.
Anything over eight miles, would be a long walk for me, Currently my walking tends to be on the hills where I live here in Malvern.
I've come to realise without a companion to set some days with, places will remain unexplored!...

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive and have a car.

My Message: Hi. I love been outside walking. I'm looking for some friendly people to enjoy longer day walks with,I lack motivation on my own. Sadly I have not done as much walking as I'd like, but I keep fit with swimming and Netball.

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

My Message: Hi
Im in my 50's - fit enough to handle a good challenge walk (done the Lyke Wake a few times) - ive also walked the Coast to Coast, and would be very happy to do it again some time - but am equally as happy gently strolling through the countryside stopping at the occasional pub:)
I enjoy walking on the North Yorkshire Moors/Coast, the Peak District and the Lake District.
I have a campervan, but am not averse to something a bit more luxurious in the way of a hotel or country inn!!

Im hoping to find a likeminded Lady Walker who would like the occasional weekend away, whatever the weather. - map reading skills useful but not essential!!! If anyone would like a quiet walking and eating getaway in North Yorkshire or the Peak District over Christmas do get in touch!!
