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 but still fit enough to handle a good challenge walk (done the Lyke Wake a few times now - love it!) - 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!!

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:9:

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 all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs and will bring my own. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

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;
  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding

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 late 60s, based near Menston hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Dear fellow walkers
I'm a retired teacher living in Wharfedale (so now subject to new Covid restrictions!) but hoping to meet like-minded individual(s) who share my passion for the countryside and the environment and would like a walking companion for the odd day out to the Dales initially. Currently this would have to be a "chance encounter" at an agreed time and place with social distancing observed at all times.
I'm an experienced fell-walker and did MLC part 1 some time ago and certainly prefer maps to satnavs. However I also enjoy more modest valley walks (12-15 miles) and did the Offas Dyke path a few year ago.
I'm also a musician (singer and composer),keen gardener, environmentalist (CAT member), and amateur foraging mycologist who enjoys debate and discussion as well as silent observation of birds and wildlife when the time is right!

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;

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

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

My Message: I love walking and being outdoors in all weather. I'm in some walking clubs but these have been suspended at present. The last walk I did with a club was Snowdon and I usually do the A walks which are graded the most difficult. Over the summer I've been walking and cycling (not mountain biking) in France including the Pyrenees. Nevertheless I feel that I will need to build up my fitness again with walking and I'm currently in quarantine.
I want to work up Wainright's coast to coast, hopefully before Christmas. I'm freelance so have some flexibility to walk midweek as well as weekends.
I'm also interested in meeting someone to do local walks with, in between the big walks! I'm looking for walking friends, not for a relationship. I have a couple of friends who enjoy walking but get sick of waiting for people to be available! I'm not good at map reading or using a compass but have just bought a compass and definitely want to improve my navigational skills. Hope to hear from you either locally or to meet at arranged walks 😃

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

My Message: Hi, I'm looking for someone to go hiking or scrambling with in North Wales and/or the Lakes as my husband is no longer able to walk with me. I am a member of a few walking groups however with Covid these have been temporarily put on hold. I am able to walk mid-week as well as on the weekend. I'm pretty fit and like to walk at a good average pace I guess. I haven't much knowledge of the mountains or orienteering hence my trepidation about going it alone and the reason I'm looking for a walking buddy! I'm from Liverpool and have a great sense of humour and am very easy going and sociable.

I'm not competitive these days but still want to feel a sense of achievement and stretch myself.I've explored many areas in the UK. Last year I did the Welsh 3 peaks ( over several days) with my daughter.

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

My Message: Hi Folks
I've recently rediscovered my love of hiking and camping after years of neglect - one small positive to come out of Covid....I'm looking for some walking buddies to help push, drag and cagole me back to where I was years ago!

I've had to cancel treks to Everest Base Camp twice due to different reasons - fancy trekking in Nepal?

Fairly relaxed about venue although Wales and Peak District closest and no real aspirations apart from EBC sometime. Only relevant hobbies are running (Coach with a running club) and photography. 🙂

Be nice to hear from you.
Best wishes
Glenn

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

My Message: I've always loved walking but running became my sport for a large part of my life. Due to injury a couple of years ago, I'm now back walking as my main source of fitness.
I work full time during the week but try to do about an hour or two of walking most days, and I enjoy the occasional longer walk at the weekends. I'm hoping to meet someone to share my walks with, whether that be for a local evening stroll or a weekend walk up Snowdon. I borrow my friends' dogs as company on many an occasion, but having someone I can have a conversation and a bit of a laugh with is much more preferable. I've also done a bit of geo-caching, which is much more fun with the right companion. Most recently, I've walked the Maelor Way (a section at a time) and I'm part way through the Sandstone Trail. The highest mountain I've climbed is probably Tryfan. The company is more important than the challenge these days. I do have friends I can drag along, but it often involves being the third wheel... I should mention I have been told on many occasions that I walk quite fast!

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 61 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 Message: Hi, I'm Rob, I'm 38 and I like walking in North Wales but don't mind venturing further afield. I'm looking for new friends to go walking / camping with. I'm not currently looking for a relationship but I enjoy female company as long as you don't want to talk about football as I can't stand the game. I get on with people of all ages. I'm reasonably fit and up for pretty much any kind of walk. I've done Ben Nevis, Snowdon etc. so no problem with big mountains and climbed 3 volcanos a couple of years back. I work all week so weekends are better, however, I can wangle some time off in the week as I work for myself. I'm planning on doing Everest base camp next year, so need to get some miles in ;)

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.. great website! 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 hope to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020. I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club 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 2020!! Andy

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 all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. 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:

  • 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;

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Dave and I live on the Wirral and generally walk in North Wales, the Northern fells (Yorkshire & Cumbria) and Scotland. I completed the Munros a few years ago and am slowly working my way through some other hill lists. I head up to Scotland regularly and am keen on exploring the many Scottish islands.

Happy to do low level walks, but prefer to gain some height for the views and exercise. Fairly fit and like to keep a steady pace, stopping to look at the scenery and wildlife. I do a lot of driving so don't mind traveling to meet up for walks.

Retired so can walk on any day of the week especially if the weather is good,but do spend some time on other hobbies like DIY, cooking and rock climbing.

Good sense of direction and generally can navigate reliably.
Easy going with a sense of humour and enjoy conversation. Like to visit a pub afterwards for a drink. If you are interesting in joining me then please get in touch.

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

My Message: Hi, I live in Perthshire and have spent many years walking the hills in Scotland and abroad both with friends and animals (dogs). I would love to meet up with new friends who would like to join me walking and enjoying nature and the hills at home or abroad. Initially would be looking medium paced walks and would love to have the company of a dog once more, so if you have a dog, even better!!! If what I have said appeals then please drop me a line and hopefully we can find some great walks together.

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

My Message: Greetings fellow walkers *waves*
I got into walking proper about 6 years ago and never looked back! I generally walk at the weekends unless I have time off work, when I'll fit in walks more frequently, and prefer the less well known walks, loving paths that aren't so obvious on the ground.
I go to the gym a couple of times a week and I'm pretty fit so I like a nicely paced walk but also stop to look back frequently (amazing how many people miss fantastic views by not doing this) and to take photographs … I like to blog about my walks if I find them particularly interesting. Not sure many people read the blog but I find it fun to do.
I walked the Sandstone Trail a couple of years ago … 3 days walking with a couple of sleep overs at pubs. That was fun and I'd like to do similar again, probably on sections of the Coast to Coast or the Welsh Coastal Path for starters.
I visit Wales and Cumbria at least once a year so plan walks for when I go. My most walked areas are the Snowdonia National Park, the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. Cheshire also has some nice walks and it's not quite as flat as people would have you believe!
Be warned, I do like to chat and I have a dry sense of humour … so I will either be fun to walk with or seriously annoying depending on your outlook!
Safe walking everybody.

P.S. For the avoidance of confusion seeing as I'm looking for male & female walking companions but open for relationships should the circumstances arise, I am heterosexual so sorry guys!

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. 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 also interested in:

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

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

My Message: I love walking, everything about it. What could be better than sitting down with a glass of wine and planning a walk.
Then there's the excitement of arriving at your walks starting point (usually a pub car park if it's a circular walk)
The anticipation as you lace up your boots and the adrenaline rush as you set off on your way. The endorphins kick in, you get warm, remove a layer ( i can never work out exactly the right clothes to walk in )
The scenery is beautiful, you catch a glimpse of a deer, a buzzard, a moth or a cowslip.
I often get lost ( Its not getting lost, its going on an adventure) i usually get muddy and sometimes i fall over.
Then there's the relief as your sore feet sense the end of the walk. A nice pint and a pack of crisps or nuts, maybe a meal by a fire.
These are all wonderful things, but so much more when shared with a like minded friend.
