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.

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

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. I'm not bothered about dogs one way or the other. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

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 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. P.s. not having much luck downloading a new photo.

I am also interested in:

  • Mountain Biking

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

Box: 203307

I am a Female Walker, in my late 30s, based near York hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: New to York (not quite as glam as New York, but hey ho) and completely carless, I'm looking to get out to the moors/dales and anywhere else. So, if you fancy being my taxi (or chauffeur, whichever you prefer), and daytime hiking sidekick, and you're between 35-55, give me a holler.

Providing, of course, you're alright with this lot:

*Serious, dull, non-adventurous folks who lack a witty sense of humour will last about 5 seconds with me. I revel in sarcasm, pish-taking banter and being with quick-witted people. Anything else is just like pulling teeth, and that's never fun, is it?

*I might (probably will) faff. Whilst I don't walk slowly, I am known for getting hot/cold/hungry/hot/hungry/cold/hungry and having to faff because of it. Sergeant Majors will likely have a hissy fit.

*If you love banging on about all your long-distance walking expolits or 'bagging' experiences (I've got quite a few bags of the Osprey variety myself), you'll probably bore the merino wool socks off me.

*Getting lost is all part of the experience. I won't go ape if you don't.

*I've been hiking since I was 'iccle and am strong, fit and enjoy challenging hikes of between 15-25 miles a day. Ambles bore the pants off me so dawdlers would be best (slowly) moving on to another profile.

*If I sound like a moaning minnie, I'm actually not. I'm really fun, talkative, creative and slightly mad.

*Not looking for blokes who think this is a pick-up site. Get yourself on Tinder for that. Unless, of course, you're really cute, funny, single, non-materialistic, bewteen 39 and 43 and can drive (or we'll be wandering round York all day). You're not? Nah, didn't think this would be the best site for that somehow...

I'm moving to York in May 2019 so am available from then. Days I'm free vary, it might be weekdays or weekends.

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 don't drive.

I am also interested in:

  • 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;

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 early 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.

My Message: Hello my name is Roger and I live near the Western Beacons in Wales. Since taking early retirement from teaching I now work part time and freelance for AAP's delivering the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme mostly in the Peak District, Lake District, Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons but I'm available for training, supervising and assessing anywhere during the expedition season. When I'm on DofE I'll use my day van and stay on campsites, out of season I'll stay in a Youth Hostel or find an Air BnB near the area I'm exploring. In addition to walking I like visiting interesting places like National Trust properties e.g. Attingham Park near Shrewsbury and exploring different parts of the coast and countryside in the UK, Ireland and abroad. I'm free to walk during school holidays, some week days and most weekends and would like someone to share my time with.

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. 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. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have a car.

I am a Qualified Mountain Leader (ML) - Mountain Training Association.

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;
  • Mountain Biking

By putting my profile on here I am hoping to meet someone special.

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

My Message: Spurred on by doing more challenging walks ahead of doing the Three Peaks Challenge 6 years ago I have continued to enjoy walks and climbs. I am active and fully fit enjoying a variety of activities. I enjoy varied walks from relaxed countryside walks to something a lot more challenging. Part of enjoying walks for me is good company. I am happy to enjoy a drink or meal afterwards and would consider multi day trips. Prefer mid-week although I could do weekend walks. I have indicated walking areas and counties but are not limited to those indicated. If my post interests you do get in touch

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 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 with my dog 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.

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 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:

  • 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 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 50s, based near Bourne/buxton hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello, I'm Ian. I'm an experienced walker who enjoys walks of 8 miles and upwards. My girlfriend is unable to walk this far due to foot problems, so I am looking for a walking buddy for long walks as I enjoy a bit of companionship and chat as I go. I live in Lincolnshire but also have a house in Buxton and a caravan in Norfolk so am well placed for the Peak District, Norfolk and much of the Midlands. I like to walk at a good pace in all conditions and like to keep moving - I'm not much of a one for taking breathers! I work full time but work is quite flexible so I could manage some mid-week walks, as well as most weekends. Look forward to hearing from you.

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

My Message: I`m a 55 year old female (physically but mentally somewhat younger!) looking for a walking buddy in Herefordshire. I enjoy walks in the Black Mountains, Brecons, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. At the moment I can only do weekends but after the end of March will have some weekdays free too. I like hill and mountain walking but feel a bit nervous going alone without a companion to stop me getting lost or falling off a mountain! Enjoy a good chat and a laugh? Come and get lost with me!
