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 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 early 60s, based near Sheffield/barnsley hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm 63 and a regular walker. In the past I've been very fit (good standard marathon runner) but curtailed as we all get older. Prefer up to about 5 or 6 miles but nothing too strenuous. I love walking in my local area Barnsley/Sheffield and the Peak District but would be prepared to travel a little to walk with a companion in their area too. Love nothing better than starting and finishing at a good tea room. Don't mind mind decent pubs but definitely not a drinker. Love wildlife and occasionally look after the local hedgehog rescue to give the owners a chance of a break.I like local history and have a small Genealogy business. Enjoy historical walks. I recently left Royal Mail after 12 years so am now available almost any day.Simply love walking and the countryside.

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

My Message: Hi. I'm an easy-going romantic with a love of the countryside - high rugged areas, green and pleasant lands, peaceful valleys and windswept ridges. Not averse to a few home comforts, nice BandBs, concerts, cooking, camping if needs must. Working, but lots of spare weekdays and weekends, plenty of ideas of what I want to do more of - visits to the Highlands, Wales, and anywhere else that takes my fancy. It would be nice to share these good times with a like-minded, independent female. You will find me (I hope) considerate, good-humoured and honest.
Live near Nottingham but travelling not a problem.

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

My Message: I like to get out in the hills as often as possible but I don't go bagging Munros just to get back and tick it off a list.
I go to enjoy the beauty of our country and take my time and breath in fresh air.
I love Caledonia, the north west highlands to me are the most beautiful place on planet earth and I've traveled extensively.
I don't go climbing or in the snow and ice anymore as I have done in the past.
I don't mind it being cold and fresh though. I always go into the mountains fully prepared, map, compass, waterproofs etc. Just common sense things because anything can happen at any time.
I have done a lot of walking in Scotland but also enjoy the lakes, and the dales etc, doesn't have to be a long or high up walk, pleasurable and fun is what it's all about to me.
Would like to meet others to enjoy a good time out and about, not just on high peaks, any walk can be a good one, it's what you make of it. Finding a nice pub at the end is a bonus too.
I'm going up to the north west highlands from 15th June for two weeks and going to tackle Slioch, An Teallach, Stac Pollaidh, Suilven amongst others. Cape Wrath too.
Before that I hope to be up in the lakes most weekends depending on the weather.

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

My Message: I am passionate about the hills, wild places and like a challenge. I am an experienced hillwalker. I'm easy going and have a good soh. Semi-retired so can walk in the week as well as at week-ends. I usually walk with groups, friends or alone to practice navigation (which I am reasonable at). Its always better to share adventures with likeminded walking buddies. I've just moved to the Yorkshire dales and enjoying having some great walking on the doorstep. I have walked extensively in Scotland, Lake District, North Wales and Europe. Did the coast to coast last year which was an amazing experience. Im seeking walking companions who might be interested in doing long distance paths here or abroad and/or hillwalking in the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District or Scotland. I'm used to driving to walk locations.

My Message: Hi
I have just turned 40 this year, I am married with 3 kids. I love being active outdoors. I have climbed 25 munros so far and looking for other people to hike with rather than doing the harder climbs on my own as my navigation skills aren't the best! Happy to drive long distances in search of the perfect adventure trip. Nothing better than the achievement of getting to the top of a mountain and then camping watching the sunset with a drink in hand afterwards!

My Message: Hi my name is Anne. I am in my early 60's looking for walking companions for either day/weekend/week walks. I have just retired and have a desire to do a lot more walking and/or tour the UK perhaps in a camper van or narrowboat walking and exploring. I have walked the White Peak Way 90 miles a couple of times which is a lovely walk and a couple of other (flat) long distance walks. Not so keen on camping, prefer B&B, Youth Hostel or similar, what a wimp! I like to go at a steady plod...... short or longer walks. I look forward to hearing from you...

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

My Message: Hi,

My miles have dropped off with the weather so I currently do 15 miles a week over about 2-3 walks on fairly straightforward terrain. I've other interests that keep me exercised and outdoors too but I'm very keen to meet a local walking partner....

.... one who might encourage me to try new walks and more challenging ones - and be happy to take a welcome break on the way or at the end.

So if you like walking on my side of the lakes, by national park, Bowland forest or Malhamdale please get in touch. Occasionally further afield is fine too but not interested in frequent long drives.

With Best wishes. Alyson

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

My Message: I live South of the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally love walking in Wales, The Lakes, Yorkshire, Northumbria and other parts too. I first got the walking bug whilst doing a charity walk in Snowdonia in 1998 (Crib Goch at 4 a.m.). I'm happy walking on hilltops and along valleys, canals, rivers and dales as well as mountain tops. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just race to the end, what would make my day complete though is some good company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments. I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. My other interests are landscape photography, art, city breaks and the theatre. I'm all but vegan ( you don't have to be) and a reasonable cook though do enjoy dining out too. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

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

My Message: Hi,
Love walking anywhere and have done so for years on and off but my navigational skills are not good, need someone with more experience
and to make new friends along the way.
So if you are looking for good company than drop a line and see what comes up.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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. 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;
  • Wild Camping - Camping out in the wilds well away from anyone & any facilities;

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 early 40s, based near Oakham, Rutland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi everyone, I would love to meet up with other people to walk - virtually anywhere. I particularly love hill-walking (Scotland, Lakes and Snowdonia my favourite) and have bagged some 3000fters, but am keen to walk anywhere. Friends and family are just not hikers. Even my dog is ageing so much that a short walk around the park will satisfy him (he stays at home/in the car when I walk).

I love camping, hiking in beautiful scenery, and would love some company. I have a car and am happy to travel, although of course if you are closer to me meeting up for a day hike will be easier. With a busy work schedule, I am generally a weekend walker but will take time off when I get a walking opportunity that is too good to miss.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; Southern Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South West England;

A bit more about me:

I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. 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 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:

  • 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;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;

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

My Message: Hello. I'm an athletic and active 59 yr old male (who still thinks he's 25). I retired from policing and all those years of walking the beat. I've been back packing around the world, done Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu etc. but still loads to see. It would be great to explore with a like minded male/female companion or any groups. I'm based in Saltaire near Bradford but, as a part time pensioner and Sports Coach (!) I've got time, spontaneity, solvency and inclination to bag those peaks. So do get in touch... I won't use anything in evidence against you!!

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. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

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

My Message: I'm looking for people who don't need to think about getting out on the mountains, they just go for it when there's opportunity.

I'm interested in exploring further afield but I'm normally out on the Lake District fells at least once a week so if anyone is passing through & want to meet up let me know.

Enjoying life and meeting people with a love for the outdoors is my aim so if interested gis a shout.

Let's go and grab those memories and views.

Box No: 205061

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

My Message: I have enjoyed walking on and off since I was a child, and spent many years walking with my wife mainly in the Lake District and North York Moors and coast. Since I lost her just over two years ago, although I have an adult son and male friends who I walk with, and I sometimes enoy walking alone, I miss female company on my walks.
I'm often quiet with new people in social situations, but I promise I liven up once I get to know people. I really enjoy exploring and sharing my love of the countryside with others.
I am semi retired, though I do some voluntary work, but I can be flexible over walking days. I live very close to the NY Moors and within daily range of the Lake District. I also have a touring caravan and often spend longer periods in the Lakes and elsewhere.
I am a reasonably confident walker, though slow going up hill these days and I'm not very fit at the moment. I have a GPS, but am also a fairly confident map reader and have a good sense of direction. I have completed my Wainwrights, some I have walked many times, but am quite happy to repeat them or just to wander through some of the valleys or over the moors.
I also have an interest in history, and often try to find something of interest on my walks but at times I just enjoy the open and the peace and beauty I find there. If there's a tea room at the end of a walk, so much the better.
Please get in touch if you think we'd get along and would like to plan some walks.

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

My Message: Hi,
I am looking for male and female walking friends. I live in Leyland in Lancashire, so tend to walk in the Lake district but would be also willing to walk in other areas.
I am happy to meet to do a single fell or an all day walk doing several fells.
I do enjoy flat walks too and would be free at short notice for evening walks.
I work shifts but only part time, so that gives me time off to meet on weekdays too.

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

My Message: Hiya, I'm Lynn alias 'Miss Outdoorsy' as staying at home drives me up the walls! I like anything outdoors, love adventure & travel & my passion is mountains. I love the ridge & scrambling routes & have done Crib Goch, Snowdon, Striding Edge & Swirral Edge, Sharp Edge in Lakes to name a few. I've done a lot of walking in Peaks, Snowdonia, Lakes, Brecons, Yorkshire Dales & love them all. I'm just as happy with a hike in the Peaks as scrambling up Sharp Edge. I live near Chesterfield so Peaks & Yorkshire Dales are easy for me to get to but I don't mind travelling. Im very easy going with good sense of humour & like the well deserved stop in the pub at the end of the walk! Well I'm Scottish after all! Would love to hear from you for hiking soon.

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

My Message: Hi I'm Karen. I'm single and now that I am retired I have a lot more time to go walking just for an afternoon or a day (week days and weekends) or for weeks.

I'd like to meet up with other walkers to continue to do the SW Coast Path (I have done form Poole to nearly Plymouth and am happy to do other bits in any order), Offa's Dyke, the Coast to Coast or West Highland Way from 2017 onwards.

I've walked the Thames Path from my home as I live on the Wiltshire / Gloucestershire borders, as well as most of my local walks and many more all over the UK - on my own and many in groups; always much more fun and interesting. I have a car and am happy to travel and go for walks all over the UK and abroad; I will tackle hills; have done Snowdon and other fairly high spots like the Jurassic Coast but my knees now really prefer fewer or shorter or less steep climbs. I love watching for wildlife along the way and would love to share the scenery and enjoyment with male or female friends, and maybe meet that special man here. Its great to have a bit of a laugh and a chat along the way, especially if interspersed with stop offs for a cuppa or at a pub.

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

My Message: Hi,
I'm Catherine, 40 from Preston. I have done quite a lot of walking, mainly in the Lakes and North Wales but other areas too.I would like to do more in Scotland. I have also done some treks abroad. I have previously walked a lot with my parents but they are getting past the long and high stuff now. Also I met a great walking partner on here about 8 years ago but she has moved abroad for work! I'm now struggling to get out walking as I don't want to go by myself. I love anything outdoors, pretty much any weather. I love camping and a good pint after a walk. I'm looking for people aged 35-48 who would like to go on day walks to begin with to see how we get on. Anyway, drop me a line if you'd like to make contact and get out walking. Thanks
