I am a Female Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Dagenham, Essex.

My Message: Hi, I am an experienced hiker and able to do 10-20 miles comfortably. I hike weekly with three groups but am looking for like minded people to do more adventurous hikes and enjoy the great outdoors with on weekends away and hols. I have a good knowledge of the OS maps and compass. I am a working mum of two and my husband is not one for hiking, So I am able to do day hike at the weekend and can go away during school holidays. I enjoy walking at good pace ( some say fast) and like learning about people, things and places of interest. I like to describe myself as an around good egg! So if you are like minded, I am happy to try out day hikes to see how we get along. Thanks for reading. (Box no: 104500)

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Aberdeenshire.

My Message: Hello. I am new here and am hoping to find some new, like-minded friends to share my passion for good, enjoyable walks. I am a 58 year old self-employed female and reasonably fit, walking every day with my lovely, very well behaved dog. I will consider most areas to walk but would prefer somewhere local for regular walks. I am not a mountaineer but equally don't enjoy sauntering. Something in between is ideal. Photography and walking are my two hobbies easily combined. Please get in touch should you feel you might like a walk together.

Box No: 111881

I am a Female Walker, in my early 70s, based near Bolton.

My 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.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Teignmouth.

My Message: Your Message
Hi. I'm new to South Devon and love to walk! My trusty Shetland sheepdog is my constant companion. I'm hardy but not very fast. But I love company, a cuppa and good conversation! I'm only interested in making friends, nothing more. Timewise, I am very flexible so happy to do weekdays around the local area or Dartmoor or further afield. I'm a liberal thinker, an ex-academic, interested in the arts, travel, politics and culture, anything funny and engaging. I also play the violin badly, but don't worry, it doesn't come out with me! I love the great outdoors and fresh air.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Preston.

My Message: Hello there........ I live in PRESTON and I'm looking for male/ female/group walking companions.
I used to walk every weekend a couple of years ago and have managed to tick off over 50 of the wainwrights plus many other challenging walks however my fitness levels are not what they used to be and I would like to change that !

So I am looking for like minded walkers who are happy to walk at a reasonable pace, like to laugh and enjoy a good chat but at the same time feel comfortable with silence, particularly in the peace and quiet of the countryside.

I drive, I am reliable, and I'm available Saturday's and some Sunday's as I have just joined a walking group that meets every altenate sunday.

My sense of direction is not great but if I'm really observant I can get by and I'm looking at buying a GPS unit.

I prefer the lakes but I'm happy to do more local short walks too. Preferred level is about 10 miles with ascents between 1000 - 2000ft.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Liss, Hants.

My Message: Hi there,
I am Cheryl, new to the site and still trying to find my way around.
I have a young and positive outlook on life and am told I look a lot younger. If I could engage in lots of long walks I would, but I have osteoarthritis which hinders that. I am a Holistic Therapist and have managed to stay away from pain killers, preferring supplements and gentle exercise. I appreciate the many benefits of spending time in nature, and as I live in the South Downs National Park, I am never short of areas to explore. I'm never happier than when out for country strolls with a friend, sometimes stopping off for a picnic, or coffee at a nearby pub. I am looking for male/female company interested in 'relaxed' walks where we can enjoy the fresh air, chat and take in the surrounding beauty, and would love to hear from anyone who feels the same. I once joined a group walk, but didn't enjoy it and much prefer one to one company. I have only listed local walking areas, but am not adverse to trying others. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am a Male Walker, in my early 70s, based near Lowestoft And Weymouth.

My 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

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Hinckley, Leics.

My Message: Hi, my names Paul and I'm looking for someone who is adventurous, fun and would like to go on short or long hikes. Short country walks to a country pub for food and drinks are as much my cup of tea as are the more challenging long distance trails.
I like taking photos and chatting with strangers along the way, generally having a laugh and enjoying the great outdoors. I'm currently trying my hand at landscape water colour painting if you can give me some tips? In return I can safely navigate you from A-B without fear of getting lost!
I can go walking almost any day of the week as my work is flexible, although I have to work a lot of weekend dates so weekdays would be best.
The Peak District is a big favourite of mine because it's close to home but love the Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes, but would walk anywhere new and interesting. Would be interested in walking in Italy as I've just got the guide books and it looks amazing!
So if you'd like to have your own sherpa, tour guide and some fun along the way drop me a line

My Message: Hi. I'm 59 married and live in chelmsford essex I'm looking to meet women for company as walking alone g can be quiet boring. I used to be quite fit as had horses for many years but over the past 10 years have let it slip, although I have 2 german shepherd dog that nead regular excersise, as my husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease his ability to walk far has slowed, although he was never that enthusiastic before.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Shoreham By Sea.

My Message: Hello I am currently walking sections of the South West Coast path. I have walked from Poole to Hartland Quay so far. 514 miles down and 116 miles to go. I am walking for four days from the 28th July from Hartland Quay to Barnstaple. A good mix of four days walking. I am walking 3 days with another member of this site but the more the merrier. I am particularly keen to find someone to walk on Monday 31st July from Clovelly to Hartland Quay as there are only a few buses and two cars would be good as I am walking on my own that day. Please get in contact if you would like to join me. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you.
