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

My Message: A bit about me; l'm a widow, single, adventurous, fit and happy.
I enjoy walking anywhere and would like to explore new areas. I have walked some of the SW coastal path and would like to do more of this. Also love walking in the countryside, be it just me and my spaniel, or with friends. It would be lovely to meet new friends to walk with and share conversation, a good yarn or a laugh, maybe a beer or coffee along the way.
Happy also to explore areas further afield, and willing to travel.
I live on the Dorset coast so also enjoy sea dips and kayaking and messing about on/by the water.
I have walked the Camino de Santiago and may return to walk sections again sometime. Open to suggestions for new adventures and fun.
If any of this sounds interesting do get in touch.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Al, a male walker hoping to meet a female walking companion. I've been into sport all my life, team sports, the gym, running and now walking. I'm getting back into fitness with jogs/walks in the woods and back in the gym and I would to get back to day long walks in the hills and Dales. I work a 4 day week at the moment but go part time in September '22 so can walk during the week and at weekends. I would like to start with a stroll around town and lunch or whatever and then build up to longer walks but I appreciate that it would take time to build the confidence to walk with a man in the woods or the hills. I'm flexible and more than willing to compromise. Ideally I would like to meet an independent lady who takes an interest in the world around her and is happy to discuss and debate her own opinions. Looking forward to hearing 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. 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 also interested in:

  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Mountain Biking

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

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.

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

My Message: A bit about me...
Well, I like to mix up my walks so vary the level, distance and area where I can. I'm not as fit as I used to be but get out as often as I can. I work full time and longer walks are usually saved for weekends but during summer months I'll walk most evenings. I've walked a few long distance routes in this country and explored lots of areas of mainland Spain, Portugal and Majorca. I don't mind walking on my own but do prefer company. I love nature and going out with my camera (a fairly new hobby and still trying to get my head around it).
I enjoy the simple things in life like catching up with friends, chatting over a drink in the pub, a dance or two and meals out. I enjoy all sorts of music, going to live events and theatre. I'm a true believer in laughter being the best medicine - second to that, fresh air and the outdoors.

Box No: 222231

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

My Message: I walk between 5 and 12 miles most days locally, but really enjoy a day in The Lakes or Snowdonia. I have little or no experience of the Peak District, but would like to meet someone familar with the area, to show me some beautiful and challenging routes.
I also hanker after camping out whilst attempting more challenging routes, like the coast-to-coast, but have yet to do so.
I visit the gym 3 or 4 times a week and play football each week, so consider myself reasonably fit. I work from home and have extremely flexible hours, so have plenty of freedom to take off at relatively short notice.
I like people with a smile, sense of irony and a compassionate nature. I am happy to be challenged with contrary views and philosophies to my own, but draw the line at devotees of Trump and Farage.

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

My Message: Hello, I am looking for walking companions. Living close to the Peak district, this is where I do most of my walking. I usually walk around 8_10 miles, but don't mind short walks too and like to take in the scenery, photography playing a big part of my memories. I have visited many walking areas and really enjoyed them, in particular the Long Mynd, Pembroke coast, Lake District, Devon, Dorset and Yorkshire.
At the end of a walk I find nothing to beat a hearty pub meal and a pint. Looking forward to hearing from you.

My Message: Hi, I'd like to meet people to go walking with, and possibly a bit of kayaking and mountain biking. I love walking in the Peak District, Lake District, the South West and am starting to explore Scotland.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Paul and I started walking during the first Covid lockdown to improve my physical health and mental well-being.

I had also hoped it would reduce my waistline, but I like my food too much. Fitness has improved, but weight loss is still a work in progress. I have recently started indoor cycling as well to burn some more calories and wouldn't mind going for a bike ride either.

I've increased my walking distance over time and can now comfortably manage up to 10 miles a day and continuing to increase this further.

I've only walked around Kent so far and would like to walk further afield and see as much of the UK and beyond as possible. I'm self employed so pretty flexible when it comes to when I can walk and I drive, so travelling to meet up for walks is no problem.

I'm up for an adventure or challenge and equally like walking along the coast or in the countryside. Day walks, weekend walks, camping or backpacking are fine by me. Picnic stops to admire the views and visiting places of interest along the way, followed by a nice pub at the end of the day are some of my favourite things. I like most genres of music, have a wicked sense of humour and am very easy going.

If you would like some company on a walk or bike ride, please get in touch.

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

My Message: Hi! I'm Andy. Having recently taken early retirement I want to spend as much time as possible walking and exploring our beautiful country (and abroad, when we're allowed!), something I didn't have enough time to do when I was working. I often walk alone, but it would be good to have company sometimes, especially on trips further afield and multiday walks. I go walking midweek (Monday to Thursday) which might fit your schedule if you work shifts or at weekends.

A perfect walk for me is one where you can constantly look around in awe at fantastic scenery, so I tend to gravitate towards hillwalking, mountains and coasts. I am reasonably fit and may walk up to 13 miles in a day, but I always look at the quality of the walk rather than the length, so often walk shorter distances. A perfect walk should also have some food and a couple of beers built in, either during or afterwards (preferably both!)

My day-walking in the past few years has been in the Peak District and The Cotswolds, as they are fairly local to me, but with longer trips to Snowdonia and Scotland. However, I am a confident navigator and am looking forward to exploring other areas of the country. I am a fan of staying in nice pubs with rooms when away from home for a night or two.

Box No: 220261

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

My Message: Not ready for old age yet! I miss male company. Sadly my male friends are unwell, not able to go walking.Which is why I'd like to walk with a male friend who, like me, is interested in the state of the world, is curious, can see the funny side of life, who is respectful and considerate of self and others. Who is comfortable with meaningful conversation and silence...and anything in between.
In the past I've walked in Norway and Andalusia....locally in the forest, on beaches, South Downs.

I'm not solely into getting to a destination, love stops to take in my surroundings, maybe with a coffee or small snack?
I'd like to explore Wild places in Uk or elsewhere...maybe camping, wild swimming. Don't rule out a city walk. Locally or further afield. I would like to be guided by someone else's ideas or experiences.
I know about myself that I can get overenthusiastic and overdo it..
so would like to communicate clearly about where we are going and what it entails.
Over the last few years have not done much walking so am building strength and stamina which i Really want to do! Plus very important at my time of life!!!!
I work three days a week with long holidays and a lot of flexibility.
My hobbies are people, the Arts, live music, reading, films (series during lock down!)international, community, nature, acting to save our planet from the mess we've made!

  • 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;

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

Currently set to attempt both alone however would much prefer a walking buddy at this time of year! After running my first marathon last month my legs are itching for something big to climb!

Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. 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.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near Stansted hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, long distance point to point walking is my favourite type of walking although love a weekend in the lakes or similar. Ive just does the wainwrights Coast to Coast, and previously have walked the West Highland Way and the first part of the GR5 in the alps amongst others. I do have a dog and would like to walk a bit more with him as he can do long distances but so far haven't taken him on many trips so he can stay at home if thats a deal breaker. I am going to take a sabbatical from work next year and keen to pack plenty of walking in. Some more of the GR5 next summer is at the top of the list and then the Pembrokeshire way.
I am reasonably fit - happy to walk in all weathers (although wouldn't we all prefer a bit of sunshine and blue skies !) for up to 8 or so hours a day with a pub at the end ideally!

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

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. I have recently bought an old campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will help to keep myself and others safe. 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 also enjoy narrowboating with family and friends. I look forward to hearing from you...

My Message: Hi, I'm Richard, i've loved walking for years, but don't claim any serious history other than Ramblers association walks.
Now retired & living alone in rural Wales, I have the free time, remain fit enough, and it'd be great to meet someone to share my many local trails and perhaps also a long distance trek (Cuthberts way or Anglesey coastline maybe?)

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

My Message: Others describe me as smiley, bright and bubbly. I am very friendly and caring and love the company of adults and children alike.

I love being outdoors: walking, kayaking, cycling or just gardening. I am happiest up a mountain, taking photos and exploring new wild places. I am happy camping, Youth Hostelling or staying somewhere posh.... all part of the adventure. Special moments are enjoying a picnic or cup of tea whilst sitting on top of a hill and admiring the view.

I also enjoy music and singing and play the violin. I am a Christian and try to live out love, joy, peace, patience and kindness. I have 2 amazing sons, both grown up now.

So do be in touch if you would like a walk together.

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

My Message: I like nothing more than a day walk, any time of year, whatever the weather. I prefer a more challenging walk but strolls are welcome too. I love being amongst nature, I find it very calming and grounding after a set of shifts.

I'd like to find a fit walking friend who doesn't mind what the weather brings.
I am not looking for a relationship, just a likeminded individual to share some pleasant hikes with.

I enjoy ridge walks and have done the CMD arête, Crib Goch, Aonach Eagach and lots of the other main ones. Scrambling is a passion too - the Wildboarclough one is my favourite to date. I enjoy Snowdonia, Tryfan, Snowdon, The Glyders etc. I'm happy on flatter walks too - I was brought up in Lincolnshire! I like cycling too, I've a road and mountain bike. I have a car so travelling is no problem.
