I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Oundle.

My Message: Hi !
I am looking for a female walking partner to enjoy the great outdoors and possibly the indoors too !
I am a qualified Mountain Leader, so hopefully there is no chance of us getting lost !
I am fun loving and like nothing better than a good walk, a laugh and a pint afterwards in a cosy pub.
I love live music, making a good meal (I'm into Spanish food at the moment!) and travelling.
Hope to hear from you soon !

Box: 110711

I am a Male Walker, in my late 40s, based near Halifax.

My Message: Hi.

I'm Dave and a relative novice. I walk for an hour or more each weekday and try to do more on Sundays - 4 hours in Bronte country a decent effort recently. I did also get to the top of The Old Man of Coniston last year. It hurt!

I'm seeking, ideally, female company age 40-50 who can encourage me, inspire me and support me in taking on ever increasing challenges. In return, I expect to do the same for you!

Box: 110684

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Barrow In Furness.

My Message: Hi. My name is Richard. I am currently working in Barrow in Furness, Close to the lake district. I used to do a lot of mountaineering, hiking and walking. I have not been able to do this for sometime due to other commitments. I am in a position now to get back to it and do some walking again. With working here I have nobody to get out with. I can manage midweek walks sometimes during the day. Sometimes on an evening depending on my shift. Looking to do any walks in the area from easy to more difficult and maybe find a few geocache on the way. Good company with a good sense of humour required for some interesting walks

Box: 110662

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 30s, based near Lancaster.

My Message: Hi. I really enjoy getting out walking and exploring new places, and I'm looking for a female friend aged between 25 and 35 to join me for anything from short local walks to adventures a bit further afield. I'm next door to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales so I've got some brilliant walks and places to explore pretty much on my doorstep. Also I'm up for travelling a bit further as well. I'm not an uber-serious hiker or anything, so massive day long hikes or serious climbing aren't really my thing, but I'm definitely up for a challenge! I'm normally free week day evenings for local jaunts, and weekends too. Feel free to drop me a line. Thanks. Ben.

Box: 102465

I am a Male Walker, in my late 60s, based near Malvern.

My Message: As I've been on this great site for 3 years I thought an update was in order. I now spend December, January and February in Ribeira Brava, Madeira and the remaining 9 months here in Malvern; both splendid walking centres. Nevertheless, while in England I like to get away and over the last few years have walked the SWCP from Exmouth to Poole in dribs and drabs. Thinking of a new project this year, I saw on this site that Wales is split into fourteen mountainous regions. How about climbing the highest in each region? In a relaxed way, you understand, going away for a few days at a time. Investigation showed that I'd done many of them before so I decided on the third highest of each instead. Anyone fancy joining me? Oh, I'm planning to walk the Fisherman's Trail, along the Atlantic Coast in Portugal, probably in October, as well.

Box: 110639

I am a Female Walker, in my early 30s, based near Shrewsbury.

My Message: I am looking for a walking companion around the same age, male or female, to accompany me and my 2 border collies on a walk every now and then. My family and friends used to join me on walks, but they are all so busy it's hard to arrange a time when we are all free.
I don't enjoy really long walks, I prefer shorter walks with beautiful scenery or wildlife to look at on the way (or a nice pub at the end!)
I like discovering new and interesting walks. That's not to say I never visit the same place twice, but where possible I will find an alternative route around, to make the same walk slightly different.
I run a dog training centre near Shrewsbury which keeps me busy most days, especially at weekends. However I don't work full-time hours and usually have time off during the week. This is when I am more likely to be free for walks.
I sometimes go away for training seminars, so could potentially walk in other areas of the country if it fits in with one of my trips.
In a walking companion I am looking for an honest (but not boring), kind, optimistic person who enjoys life (in moderation), can hold their own in a conversation and can have a laugh.
If this is too much to ask then a mixture of the above would also be good!
Thanks for reading

Box: 110631

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Camberley.

My Message: Hi, I am new to this website in March 2016. I am writing this message from Tromso in arctic Norway! Here with my wife, but she doesn't walk, so feeling sad that I don't have walking partners here. We have been visiting my daughter who runs a dog sledding company in arctic Sweden, where I have been saying I would like to walk on the Kungsledden ( Kings Way) one summer. So lots of potential trips to Norway/ Sweden/Finland. I have been an experienced hill walker and expeditioner e. g. Alps, Pyrenees, High Atlas plus all the UK wild areas. Now I am returning to my walking roots and would like to join with someone who loves good walking adventures!
Anything considered. I mean anything!! I am slowly getting walking fit and would welcome turning strangers into walking friends. Very happy with shorter routes especially if lots of height gained.
I have a Mountain Leadership Certificate from the 1970's, so a little rusty and worn!
My main interests are: East Africa, where I am a trustee of African Revival, an education and community NGO; school governing; and coaching and mentoring. What are yours?
Love to hear from you.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Lagos, Portugal.

My Message: Hello, I am currently living in Portugal (volunteering at a Dog Shelter amongst other things) but make a couple of trips to the Lake District each year to do a few days walking. I am an easy-going, experienced walker who always enjoys meeting and getting to know new people. I will be in Keswick on Sunday 24 April (planning on a 16km-Skiddaw walk) plus one other gentler walk the following day. It would be great to make contact with anyone who would like to join me.

Box: 109129

I am a Male Walker, in my early 40s, based near Loughborough.

My Message: I'm looking for friends who enjoys walking and the great outdoors to join me on my adventures.

I walk between 6 and 10 miles most weekends, with shorter walks during the week.

I live in the Charnwood Forest area of Leicestershire, which has some beautiful countryside. I also enjoy walking in Wales and the Peak District, the Lakes District, Cornwall and Scotland. I also enjoy camping, bodyboarding, kayaking and other outdoor activities. I work full time during the week, but I'm willing to travel reasonable distance for weekend walks (North Wales, Peak District, etc), and further for weekends away/holidays/etc. I like to travel, so walking holidays abroad are also a possibility.

If you're interested in meeting up then please get in touch. Nick.

I am a Male Walker, in my late 50s, based near Manchester.

My Message: Hello. I was prompted to join this site as I went for a great walk yesterday in beautiful spring sunshine - it was a new walk to me (about 20km) and the first long one since last year so I'm feeling the effects today, but I would really liked to have had someone to share it with! Keen to do it again but ideally not alone. I walk alone, with friends, my children, whatever, but a long walk with another person is different so I'd like to meet some like-minded walking companions. I'm pretty fit, have walked a lot in Scotland, but live in Manchester so tend to go to Snowdonia, Lakes, Peaks, can read maps (used Viewranger yesterday on my phone, but ran out of charge half way, damn and blast it. Bloody tech - obviously nothing to do with the operator) and can converse on a wide range of topics, sometimes even intelligently. Do get in touch if you'd like to walk sometime.

Box: 110575

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 30s, based near Cumbria.

My Message: Hi, I'm Rob, 36 and looking to meet a likeminded female or just make new friends. I live in West Cumbria, so I'm lucky to have the Cumbrian fells and coastline on my doorstep.

I am trying to get back to what I love most, the great outdoors, after going through separation. In the past I have done several long distance walks, but really just enjoy all aspects of walking long or short.

I am keen to find someone to share the adventures that come with walking, as a shared adventure is always more fun. Obviously the Lake District is my usual area for walking, but I am willing to travel having also explored Northumberland, Snowdonia, North Yorkshire and the Scottish Highlands in the past.

More than anything it's about sharing these experiences with someone who had the same appreciation for the outdoors, to go for a walk, chat, have a laugh and hopefully click with. If they are interested in food and drink after a walk, then even better.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Huddersfield.

My Message: .
Hello, I live in Huddersfield near the lovely walking areas of Marsden Moor and Holmfirth. I enjoy gentle strolls in scenic countryside (and also coastal paths whenever possible) and prefer to combine walks with points of interest such as reservoirs, canals, historic buildings and country pubs. I am single and hoping to meet a man of similar age who also enjoys shortish walks for companionship. As I am currently still working full time my walks have to take place on weekends and holidays. I dont have an up to date photo but I am average height, slim build and have silvery hair and brown eyes. Thanks for reading this!

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Manchester.

My Message: Hi, single guy and just getting back into walking having done a few walking holidays in the past and a couple more recently. Looking to meet up with ideally an easy-going female companion or maybe a small group to get going on a more regular basis, i.e. having recently retired I have some time for a weekday or the odd weekend. Someone with experience who knows the way(!) would be a great help as I need to learn a few routes. I'm fit and enthusiastic and enjoy say 8 -12 miles medium. Anywhere within a reasonable drive of Manchester would suit; Lakes, Lancs, Peaks. I'm happy to put in a bit of effort to get the best of the scenery, have a bit of a natter and a pint of real ale as just rewards at the end.

Thanks / Dave

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near Holmfirth.

My Message: Hi my name is Alison and I live in a beautiful part of West Yorkshire.

I love walking and am a member of a few walking groups but miss the individuality of a walking partner to share the 'oos and ahhhhs' when you see something special. Tranquility of a special place, view, peace and sunset too.

I also enjoy visiting historical places of interest,theatre,ballet to name but a few. I have a lot of friends but many are busy with family at weekends and now with my two daughters at uni have more time to spare.

If you are interested on joining me on a walk, or if I could join you on a walk you are planning, I would love to hear from you.

I keep myself reasonably fit, by walking locally, but also playing racquet ball, three times a week.
It would be good to meet a liked minded woman, who lives fairly locally and likes walking in the countryside, who enjoys taking in the scenery, the wildlife and having a good chat and a laugh along the way.
I have a couple of mornings free during the week, which means that I am available to go walking locally during the week as well as at the weekends, for both local walks and walks further a field.
