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

My Message: Hi, I'm a keen walker, now retired so have more time to get out and about. I walk quite regularly with friends but as they are still working this is confined largely to weekends. We've enjoyed tackling many of the long distance paths over the years. I walk a lot on my own too or, until very recently, with my dog who has now sadly passed away, but would like to meet a like-minded walking buddy, preferably reasonably nearby. It would be good perhaps to share some Wainwright bagging or explore new areas more or less anywhere in the British Isles or even beyond. There are so many places I still want to see and it would be great to do so in good company. I'd love to hear from you.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8:9:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; South East 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 like walking with dogs but do not have one of 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:

  • 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 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 South Lakes.

and would like to get to know this beautiful region once more and all the lovely scenery and places, that it and this country has to offer.

I haven't done much distance walking for a while now,but am keen as mustard and have some interesting tales to tell,on the way.
Best wishes.

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

My Message: I've just got back into walking recently and quite often go walking with a male friend but I do miss the chemistry a female companion can bring.

In the past I have walked chunks of the Pennine Way and Offa's Dyke path and also in the Alps and the Pyrenees. In recent times I've started walking again in the Clwydians and the Marches areas but also closer to home on the Wirral. I'm doing walks of around 10 miles at the moment and quite happy with that or a shorter walk.

I have a very quirky cheeky sense of humour and love to make a girl laugh. I like doing lots of other things- cooking, football mad, astronomy, bird watching and love a decent box set. I do need someone to give me a bit of a motivational push though sometimes !

My ideal walking partner would have a good sense of humour and be patient if we got lost. A lady who enjoys the outdoors but enjoys the journey rather than seeing a walk as merely a physical challenge. A warm affectionate type with a good heart. No smokers or heavy drinkers thanks !

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

My Message: Hi
Born and brought up in Cumbria. Back again after many years away. Travelled widely. USA, Asia, Europe. Climbed a few foreign hills as well as most in Cumbria. Now getting to know Wales and Scotland, while catching up with friends and fellow walkers. Really love the hills and mountains anywhere, but Cumbria and Dales are very local to me.

Love to 'talk and walk' so good companion also essential and someone who is not too worried if I stop to take photos.

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

My Message: Hello is anyone free to join myself and my dog Cocoa, for hikes at the weekends. I have travelled to hike fairly extensively all over the UK national parks and to mention a few places; have visited Snowdonia, Isle of Skye; Peak District; Cotswolds and parts of Hadrian's Wall. Favourite places are definitely the Lakes and Cairngorms. I would say I am of average fitness and tend to walk fairly slowly but do like to be out all day so roughly aim for about 10 miles a day regardless of terrain. I like to bag 2/3 summits at a time if possible. Definitely want to see what Torridon is like but it's a long way to drive on my own and I hope to visit the Alps and Pyrenees as well as the rest of the world to hike or cycle in the future. i love the adventures with my pup but it would be great to find some company who I can actually hold a conversation with!

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

My Message: I currently live in south Birmingham, and would like to walk more than I currently do - I spend far too much time sitting on the sofa just thinking about places I'd like to go to.

I'm only looking for friends, either for local walks or further away - I'm currently working my way through the Wainwrights and am half way through - so I'm particularly interested in fell walking friends.

I don't consider myself a particularly experienced or confident walker, but can read a map and feel happy to be out in the fells on my own - I do most of my walking alone at the moment.

I love nature and wildlife - and am often behind a camera when I'm not walking. I'm vegan, so perhaps not the right choice of walking partner if you're wanting to go for a Sunday roast afterwards, although I'm more than happy to have a post walk beer.

I'm a teacher, and it would be particularly good to meet others who are looking to walk in the holidays.

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

My Message: Hello fellow walkers - I am looking for a female walking companion for leisurely walks in the countryside, around about about 6 miles or so in length, both in my home county of Yorkshire and further afield. I am not looking for a challenge but simply to enjoy the beauty of the countryside and the fresh air, with stops to admire the views and appreciate nature. Also enjoy coastal walks, rivers and canals. Tea and cake at a quaint teashop or even a pub meal would round off the day nicely. Definitely not a sporty individual, although I do enjoy swimming, I have varied interests including reading, the arts particularly theatre and cinema, crafts especially knitting, history and architecture, railways and vintage cars, travel both in the UK and abroad, animals especially cats. I have numerous walking books for my own area and have reasonable map reading skills. As I am now retired, I can walk on some weekdays, as well as on the weekend.

I consider myself fit and healthy and happy to walk near or far. Like to discover new places to walk.

It would be great to meet fellow walkers who have a positive outlook and who have the ability to escape the more serious side of life with a little friendly banter.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.

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 but do not have one of 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:

  • Being In Friendly Company, Talking, Listening. Just Enjoying The Here And Now.

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

My Message: Love walking from the flats to the hills. Walked snowdon 5 times in the past. Love the Peak District as much as the forests. Don't drive but don't let it stop me... hence jump a train to go out for the day to places Long Mynd..Mam Tor...Kinder Scout. I equally enjoy the sitting and taking in the view. Looking to meet up with anyone who enjoys a stroll and loves the countryside. I have been fortunate to have been well travelled around Scotland and Wales and camping in the process. If you love it you just do it :)

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

My Message: Hi, my name is Julie, I am single, 59yrs old, a secretary in a school (so lots of lovely holidays) and enjoy walking. My friends unfortunately aren't really keen on walking and I would like to find someone/small group of friends/like minded people to go out for the day or weekend exploring the countryside, preferably at weekends. I was an assessor with the Duke of Edinburgh so can read a map reasonably well. Would like to think I am good company, good fun, easy going, enjoy a good laugh and a lively debate. I do have a small dog, so must like dogs. Would really enjoy some good company and to the end the day in a nice pub with good food and a well earned glass of wine. ps I haven't done much walking for a while, so a little unfit.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Adrian, single, retired, fit, and keen to meet an active fit female walking companion to explore our beautiful islands, and further afield. I have a camper van to tour and also to use as a mobile base for circular and linear walks, perhaps on long distance national trails. I enjoy all types of walks both short and full day walks and long distance. I have completed a number of classic long distance paths including The Pennine Way and Wainwrights Coast to Coast, but I'm not against doing these again if my companion wished to do them. Not so good on heights these days so I avoid walking on high level narrow ledges. I am a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish, non competitive nature, passionate about our natural world, fun loving, often quirky. Other interests include camping, cycling, casual nature walks, am NT and RSPB member, conservation volunteering, reading, eclectic taste in music, art cinema, theatre, the arts, wildlife gardening and DIY. Am politically a bit of a lefty. If any of this appeals, please get in touch.

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

My Message: Hello, I'm David, single, 65 and just retired (summer '12), I live in east Manchester and would like to meet singles or a group to make walking more pleasurable. I'm not that experienced a walker so may have to be gradually more adventurous in my excursions, having said that my last job was very active so I need more than a gentle stroll to the pub! An active stroll to the pub, then, or a tea shop or whatever. My map reading skills are reasonable, I think, and I have a good sense of direction. Anybody reasonably local who would like to join forces with me, please get in touch. Dog owners welcome, though cats preferred!

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

My Message: Mid-40s professional bloke, fairly straight forward, looking for company for walks. I live in Essex, work in Cambridge and grew up in Northumbria. Happy to walk for a short walk round a park but i dream of treks across hills and moors.

After a life change last year, i have a bit more time in my life to do what i like to do which is being outdoors. I have re-freshed my camping and walking kit, and i'm getting some miles in. Looking for company, either locally for regular walks, or a bit further afield for longer ones.

PS i had a bicycle crash 6 months ago and broke a kneecap (ouch), i'm still building strength but i reckon i could handle up to 10 miles max now and further in 6 months time. (i'm a strider not a stroller)

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

My Message: Hi!

I'm fairly new to Cumbria -having recently moved to the area - after many years ambition to do so! So, primarily looking for male/female friends 'into the outdoors' - mainly fell walking/scrambling and Munro bagging. In the main, I walk with my best friend and very fit ESS (English Springer Spaniel.) So, you must like dogs and be fit!

I now have all the Wainwrights 'in the bag' but require a bigger bag for the Munros with still over 184 to complete. This requires more travelling over the border and would prefer to do with an affable and experienced walking partner. HA! If you are up for that - good news!

I have recently started camping again - and would welcome the opportunity to wild camp.

I have travelled extensively and trekked in many parts of the world - but always the UK I return to - and love.

I'm not looking for a relationship per se - just friends to share my love of the outdoors, hopefully with a good line in chat, ability not to take things (themselves) too seriously and up for a bit of 'leg pulling!'Enjoying the craic!'

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;
  • 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;
