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

My Message: I am looking to meet people who own boots and wellies and don't mind getting them covered in mud. I am happy to meet people of any age who shared a love of the outdoors and doesn't mind me stopping from time to time to take photographs.

The Peak District is on my doorstep, but have walked in areas including Wales, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, Assynt in Scotland. I have been up Ben Nevis, Snowdon, and Scafell Pike, but would happily walk there again.

I have done the three peaks in the Yorkshire Dales but over a couple of days.

I work full time in a college, but school holidays and weekends I am free. Evening walks are possible if they are local.

My level of fitness is good and improving, though that is a story to share during a walk.

I am a life member of English Heritage and the National Trust. As such I can visit such places with a guest. I love photography, history, wildlife etc. I would rather not talk about education or computing (Unless its for a good cause).

My walking aims are to look at amazing views, Camp in amazing places including a plot of land I can wild camp on in Scotland, and just enjoy it all.

If you are cold, wet, have been rained on all day and can still smile then anything is possible.

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have a car.

Worked as a Leader approved by WML. Started ML but Job in Outdoors came to an end.

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

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

My Message: Hello,

I'm 64, living north of Nottingham and I am now semi retired. I'm lucky enough to now only work about 3 days a week and I want to make the most of my freetime. I'm already pretty active, playing tennis, swimming and, during the summer, watching a great deal of cricket. I recently (April) lost my long term partner/best friend. I'm not looking for anything more than friendship at the moment.

I'm certainly not what could be described as a serious walker. I'm just looking to explore the countryside more and hopefully meet some interesting people along the way. I love going into Derbyshire and it's very convenient for me. However I have no real restrictions on where I'm prepared to go. I have thought about joining a walking group and I may do that in time. I do feel more comfortable in small groups though.

That's enough waffle for now.

Cheers

Tony

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

My Message: Anyone out there in West or East Sussex want to go 4 a walk!! Hi I am in my early 60's very mobile and fit. Married with two sons 24 and 30 and a hard working husband. Live only 5 minutes stroll from the English Channel and the back drop of the South Downs with its extensive walking path routes. We travel to Austria almost every year to hike/walk whilst my husband finds the road cycling routes. I work part time with flexible hours. I am looking for female walking buddies for walking all levels weekdays and/or weekends close to home or further afield. I am interested in completing at least 4 long distance paths in the next 12 months. I am interested in architecture, flora and fauna, wildlife and also any walking routes that are themed. I am quite a brisk walker but like to stop and take in my surrounding. I look forward to meeting you........... Recently obtained NNAS Bronze Certificate.

When it comes to Scrambling & Edges I'm OK with the occasional edge or scramble but don't go looking for it. 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. 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 mid 60s, based near The Cotswolds hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I have completed several long distance trails sometimes in groups and sometimes solo. Also enjoy day walks to interesting historical/geographical locations. Generally walk in the UK from April to October, but overseas in mainland Spain or the Canaries during winter. Group and solo walking have their downsides and sometimes it's good to walk with a like-minded companion with whom to share the countryside. Being retired, I'm flexible when and where I can do day walks or longer adventures.

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

My Message: Adjusting to the slower rhythm of retirement after a hectic global career focused on marine sciences. Considerate, respectful, centre-left, Europhile and omnivore amongst other things…books and covers! Formerly an avid mountaineer and skier, I've explored some of the Alps, Cascades and our national parks, especially the Peak District. Now a more measured hiker, seeking a good friend and companion to walk life's paths with, wherever they may take us.

Happy to engage in conversation on all manner of topics or simply enjoy quiet times. Apart from local hikes, my last outings were Snowdonia, the Brecons, The Crooners show in Aberdeen and the Fabrique des Lumières Old Dutch Masters in Amsterdam…so would love to hear your suggestions as to where to next.

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

My Message: I mix and match my walks, so that can mean anything from a short river stroll to a long distance path,I'm planning to do the Great Glen Way soon(ish). I completed a month long walk in Spain earlier this year but that was quite an unusual one for me.

I also do short trips away walking (or mostly walking) several times a year where I based in one place, again camping. I'm only a couple of hours from the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia.

A few years ago I rearranged my life so I now have a lot of flexibility in my life, the chances are that I cam fit in with your schedule.

It's not all walking, and in truth I'm not hyperactive, so I do a some overseas travel which doesn't necessarily include strenuous hikes. Last tear I did a trip to Moroccan Sahara with a vehicle. Recently I booked the cheapest flight that I could find to India and then worked out some approximate travel plans around that.

As you may have noticed, I ticked the box to say that I am looking for walking friends but I would be happy if someone special came along. If you think you might be that someone special' then I'm happy to share a bit more about myself.

I hope to hear from you soon :)

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

My Message: Hello. I'm looking for a male and female friends for local, regional or even national walks.

My mountaineering Welsh brother in law calls me a car park walker since I normally join 5-8 mile circular walks that don't involve needing to scramble down some hill on me bum. I enjoy scenery and wildlife and have pottered all around Yorkshire, Ambleside, Langdale Valley, Malvern Hills. I'm a '..have car, will travel...' kinda girl. I'm normally at church most Sunday mornings so evenings or Saturdays are best for me. My kind of walk ends with a pub as opposed to a tragic sandwich in my rucksack. I'm such a townie, I'm ashamed :-)

I also enjoy camping and fair weather cycling although a recent arm injury has clipped my wings on both. (no pun intended).

I'm rubbish at map reading and navigating although I am learning.

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

My Message: I live close to 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. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there and around me, not to 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 or a meal. I'm just into my 70's but am fit and younger in appearance and character. I can get along with most people of all ages. I am vegan and so would love to meet a vegan or veggie if possible. I generally like to walk between 5-15 miles I'm chilled, have a quick wit and great sense of humour. I drive and don't see anywhere on the mainland as too far. My other interests are landscape photography, art, city and country breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. Regards. Chris

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

My Message: Interested in finding a walking buddy, male or female to explore places in UK as well as abroad. It would be nice to have company, a bit of chit chat etc while out hiking.
I have walked many of the popular routes; summit mountains in Lakes District, North Wales. Peaks District is my nearest stomping ground.
I would love to explore Scotland, South Wales and the South of England more. As they are further to drive to I haven't spent much time there.
Done Hadrian Walls Walk a few years ago; The Cleveland Way last year; The West Highland Way will begin in May 2024, The Cumbria Way will follow sometime this year. The Coast to Coast is on the pipeline. I would loved to have company with these long distance walks.

I am employed, with a certain flexibility for weekday or weekend meet up.

As a person,I'm easy going with gsoh, can easily laugh at myself ; not easily offended. I can hold a conversation but not a chatter box, but if you are I'm a great listener.

The photo was taking several years ago. I don't have a current one and I don't do selfie as the camera lense will cracked :-).

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

My Message: Hi! I have enjoyed hill walking since my childhood - alongwith a sense of freedom, space and challenge it helps me refuel my inner strength to deal with anything during the working week.

I moved up to Bishop Auckland in 2010 for work and to be nearer the hills. I walked the Pennine Way in 1986 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 hoped to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020 but didn't!!. In June 2021 I completed Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in 11.5hrs for Alzheimer's Society with my brother but I continue to enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club (which I help run) and am free many weekends and during the school holiday times.I am soon to retire and look forward to more walking in good company.

My interests are all things musical and 20th Century painting. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2024!! Andy

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

My Message: Hello, I'm Mark I enjoy walking and discovering places. I occasionally lead walks for my friends or just enjoy a walk on my own. Most walks end up with a pint or a meal. I'm looking to meet someone who enjoys the scenery and wildlife and enjoys a occasional challenge. I'm currently trying to do all the peaks in the Yorkshire Dales over 2000ft and get a few Wainwrights done but not in any great rush.I also do a bit of mountain biking now and then (no mad off road down hill routes). Look forward to hearing from anyone with similar interests.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. 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;
  • Mountain Biking

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 Coleshill hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I used to be keen long distance walker, I've walked some of the national trails including the Pennine way and half the south west coast path.... I was out every weekend and most of my holidays. However due to a failed relationship (she said she liked walking but it turned out only to the shops and back!!) I haven't really been walking for 3 years.... I'm looking to get back into walking and would like to find someone who's interested in day walks of 10 to 15 miles with a little drink and a comfy fire at the end of it. maybe, over time, linking the individual walks into long trails.... A great person once said the longest journey begins with a single step

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

My Message: Hi
Looking for a walking partner to enjoy the scenery. Love coastal/beach walks but also countryside. It is all about the views and vistas.

Quality not quantity …..I think about 7-10 miles is my limit for a day's walking.

A good walk and chat would be nice. Can do during the week as well as weekends.

Would like to do more hill walking as I live in a very flat area!

Main aim is to keep fit and get out into the fresh air.

My Message: Hi everyone I'm here to find some walking / hiking friends for the occasional weekend when I'm usually out and about alone.
I would say I could do most of the strenuous challenging walks I'm fit enough for a challenge.
I've currently been walking around Gwydir forest area it's nice out there I've set my goal to do all the walking routes around that area before moving to a new place but I'm open to join someone else's adventure.
When im not out walking you will find me biking or paddle boarding around.

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

My Message: I am now retired so have plenty of time to go walking locally and nationally. I can sometimes make plans at short notice. I am friendly and reliable and like to chat on a walk.

I am looking for people who love walking and are looking for someone to join them. I would like to meet someone who is also interested in walking some of the long distance paths across the country. Sometimes we need a bit of motivation and encouragement and it is always better to have some company and support. Distance and speed are not that important. I equally enjoy local half day walks in the south of England to all day challenges in the mountains. But, it's always nice to end up in a country pub at the end of the day.

I am a reasonable map reader and whilst generally cautious by nature, I am fairly confident in the mountains. I have a car so can travel as necessary. I like to chat about about most things and it would be a bonus if you had a good sense of humour too.

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

My Message: Hello all,

It's been well over two years since I've been on here so this is seriously overdue an update.

I'm originally from Essex but currently reside in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
Before this I had spent 5 years in Australia as an expedition leader and outdoor instructor.

Since my first posting on the message board I have summited Mount Olympus, Ben Nevis and Snowdon (still need Scarfell)
I have also bagged a couple of the lesser peaks in Wales.

Currently, I'm really enjoying wild camping. I have been doing some multi-day hikes here and just this summer found some cool little spots around Europe.

my biggest achievement to date is back in 2022 I managed to complete the 'West Highland Way' and 'Great Glen Way' back to back.

Apart from the great outdoors I love music (the soundtracks to our lives!), enjoy most sports but also like more mundane pursuits (reading, games, tinkering and crafts)

I'm still walking mostly on my own. As much as the solitude is sometimes nice, I would much appreciate some company, banter and motivation.

Happy hiking everyone

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

My Message: Now retired but still walking. I live in mid Wales just off the coast. Surrounded by hills, big and small. Planning to walk part of the Welsh coastal path for two weeks next April. Have done a lot of different walks in many countries. Don't mind where or when,rain or shine. If I can get there, I'm up for it. Getting a bit bored of talking to myself so a walking partner now and then would be nice.

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

My Message: I live in S Bucks but love the mountains and hills: Peaks, Dartmoor, Beacons, Shropshire hills, mid-Wales, N and S Downs. I can get to them all in no more than three hours, have a great day's walking, and home again - as long as I'm out of the car for more than I'm in it, that's OK.

If you'd like to meet for a walk in these or any other (not too flat) regions, and are looking for friendship and company, I'd love to hear from you.

I've also become a mountain biker after getting a bike to access more remote hills but the bike's taken over a bit, and I'm trying to return to walking more. I've even tried a bit of bikepacking with tent etc (and even skis) to make it an adventure, but not wholly sold on that idea!

The Lakes, Snowdonia, and Scotland are the real draws though, especially in winter conditions. I've been up to the far NW and the W and Central Highlands for the last few years and love them. And the Alps of course, and Arctic Norway.

I like mountains and hills. I walk among them and try to ski (downhill and touring) them, and recently mountain bike through them to save my legs when getting to the more remote ones. Try imagining the peaks and valleys under a kilometre of ice shaping the Lakes or Highlands into the dramatic wild places they can be today. After an injury or two in 2022 I'm taking things little more leisurely but still like a good day's fresh air in most weathers.

I used to work right in the middle of London which was enjoyable and different; I live at the end of a Tube line with a usually-muddy field-and-woods walk to my local station.

But I made the move (end 2015) to working from home - or not - in my own time, so I'm freed from the weekends-only bids for the outdoors. So if you fancy meeting for a walk or a muddy ride, let me know.

Oh, and my name is Robert.

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

My Message: I am in my late 60's and live on the edge of Bath close to the Cotswold Way. I used to walk with my wife but she passed away in late 2020 and since then I have either walked with a group or alone, but group walking is not my preferred option as I like to be able to stop and take in the views when appropriate and this is not so easy when in a group.
If a walk can be combined with a pub or cafe visit part way through or at the end all the better.
I usually walk around 8 or 9 miles but can easily do up to 12 or more. Equally I am happy on shorter walks of 5 or 6 miles. I have completed over 75% of the SW Coast Path and I would be interested in other long distance paths such as the coast to coast.
My general interests centre around sport, heritage and outdoor life. I volunteer at a local city farm and do footpath improvement work in my local area. I have a disabled daughter and am / have been involved with associated charity and campaign groups.
Being retired I can usually be available to walk most days subject to my volunteering roles.
I have walked a lot around the Mendips and South Cotswolds but have also spent a fair amount of time on the Quantocks, Exmoor, Dorset coast and East Devon areas.
I have recently bought a campervan and this year have generally done shorter trips around the south and west but plan to venture further afield in the coming year.
I would like to find a similar minded person to join me on walks both in my local area and further afield.
