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

My Message: Hi.
Retired,very young at heart lady, enjoys walking in nice places, and taking in the scenery, visiting a gallery, quaint coffee shop, historical building, places of interest. Currently tend to walk alone locally in west Berkshire area, taking the train to villages outside of area at times..
Always enjoyed adventures to new places..it's been ok doing things alone but got to thinking it may be more fun to share nice walks
Now I have more time, would be lovely to share the moments and have a laugh and an adventure along the way...
I'm open to walking in most places, usually near to home, And surrounding areas, but not restricted to once I know someone to go for walks with...Love walking in countryside and to villages with things to see 😊
I do enjoy a tranquil setting...in the countryside and also can enjoy a walk in London, at one of the many parks...

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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 don't drive.

I am also interested in:

  • Trips Away, Watching Some Sport, Visiting Historical Buildings ,

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 late 40s, based near Beaconsfield hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I am looking for new friends to explore the UK with, as I've exhausted(literally !!) my current friends, many of whom prefer short walks. During this corona lockdown I've averaged 30 miles a week - better than baking any day. My job is cabin crew, often I have 3 days off during the week with the occasional weekend. I especially love coastal walks, but am good with any terrain, just happy to be walking. I'd like to do more multi day hikes, no problem camping or staying in BnBs. I've carried a big back pack but also had it transported. I've hiked the Anna Purna Circuit and part of he Camino de Santiago, always looking for new adventures.

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

My Message: Retired with plenty of time and passion to be out walking. I'm curious and observant, exploring my surroundings, keen on historical architecture, geology, flora and fauna.
Completed LD routes of North and South Downs, SWCP, Cotswold Way, part Ridgeway. I loved walking Thames Towpath and discovered there are another 2000 miles of towpath in Britain to go!
Looking to explore Sussex, Kent, Norfolk. Canals Midlands etc. At the age now where I want to stop and take in new surroundings, not a route march, 10 miles a day is comfortable. Walking allows me to explore where I'm visiting, especially historical architecture in buildings and churches. Linear walking using Airbnb or Premier Inn.
Car owner, when Covid19 clears I'd like to use the train too.
Sharing any walk in conversation with tea or pub included would be fun! Long term, finding a fellow walker of either sex who'd have the time and means to roam England, Wales, Netherlands, is also on the agenda.

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

My Message: Hi,

I have been walking for several years and would spend every day of the week doing so - if only time would allow.

Although semi-retired I still do some work which allows me free time in the week as well as some weekends.
I have walked much of beautiful Wiltshire and would love to find a walking buddy or buddies now that my best buddy has knee injuries and unable to do the miles we used to do.

I am not a hardened hiker, but love a day of 10 to 12 miles maybe with an end of the day trip to a good pub for some food and glass of wine.
I consider myself a good laugh and easy company. I no longer have my dog who was the best walking buddy but love any dog who likes to join the outing.

I'm not brilliant at maps and have been known to miss the odd path on occasions, but have always found my way home! I can battle a good rainstorm too!

One day, I would love to walk the Scottish Coast, and also,The Lake District looks fantastic with maybe a B&B stay making a good end to each day, but of course it's so much better to share the views.
I have a camper van too which can be a bonus.

I am happy to travel if it means a good days walking is on the end of it.

I really look forward to hearing from you.

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 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.

Chris

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

My Message: Hello! My name is Umesh and I am keen to find someone to explore hiking trails with over, in particular, over the next few months given we can't travel overseas.

I'm a keen hiker and amateur mountaineer (last year I climbed Mont Blanc and Kili) but really just enjoy getting out into nature and it doesn't have to be too strenuous. When we are allowed, I'd ideally like to do a bit more exploring in the Lakes and perhaps further afield in Scotland and Wales.

I'm not working at the moment so have plenty of time on my hands although that could change. I'm currently studying for my WSET level 3 wine course so am a bit tied up with that over the next few weeks but looking for some adventures in July!

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

My Message: Hi, John here. Hoping to meet like-minded people/person to spend a few hours, or even a few days with.
I enjoy walking in any type of environment, followed by a beer or two after a good slog. I live in Norfolk (although a major change in my life is making me consider moving away, maybe you could convince me?) I have walked in most National Parks, and walked up a few mountains. My navigational skills are above average and I always plan the route before setting off. With some notice, I am able to reach for the walking boots almost anytime.
I am more than happy to teach navigation skills to anyone.
I have no walking ambitions, I just love to get out and enjoy the view. So, if you wish to spend a couple of hours, or longer with me, please let me know.

I love the outdoors, walking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, coasteering, gorge walking.....the list goes on!
I have a campervan that I have just converted and, as I'm self-employed, I am able to go anywhere, at any time (almost).
I am a senior member of the Army Cadet Force and, as such, have a good knowledge of navigation and am willing to teach anyone who wants to learn. I like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).

My Message: Hello,
I am interested in meeting male or female friends to go walking with, especially now the warmer weather is approaching (provided that this lockdown eventually ends). I am based in Lancashire however I can drive and have a car so I am willing to go further afield. I am a bit out of practise with walking very long distances as my friends are not the hiking-types so I've struggled to find people to go with me in the past. However, I would really like to challenge myself and I hope to meet like minded people. I have a springer spaniel who would be joining me.

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

My Message: I've always enjoyed walking - but I'm not what you'd call a 'serious walker'. I'm energetic and I can enjoy walking quite fast - or taking a more leisurely stroll. Presently I walk alone, but not far enough or adventurously enough, because my sense of direction and map reading skills are (regrettably) zero. I'd like to learn, though - and especially to share more general thoughts, ideas and reflections about all kinds of things with another walker - exploring your slant on life - and some laughter would be good, too. I'd appreciate advice about things I could buy that would improve my enjoyment of walking (I'm thinking especially of those long, spiked poles that look very impressive and I imagine they're pretty useful, but I don't know how to choose the right ones). Ending a walk at a pub or caf' may be pleasant occasionally; weekends would be good from my viewpoint. So - moving, talking, exchanging ideas and learning: that's what I'd like. Would that be good for you, too?

I enjoy walking and scrambling in the UK, and simply looking for a handful of friends to enjoy some company with in the hills.

I've climbed, scrambled and walked in the UK and abroad but now I'm getting older just simply looking for someone to walk with, midlands based ideally to allow for evening meets in the summer.

I'm in Wolverhampton so many areas are fairly accessible.

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

My Message: I am a happy and fun loving 53 year old woman who enjoys walking and riding a tandem. I am a good listener and enjoy both chatty walks and peaceful times in the countryside.
Unusually I am a visually impaired walker who needs to be guided but not supported to walk confidently, so I am looking for kind men and women who are happy for me to gently hold their arm.
Wwalking companions who are not too far away would be ideal, although I am happy to travel by train to meet for walks.
I have regularly been walking 6-10 miles at the weekend until two months ago. I go to the gym four times a week and swim to keep fit. I used to enjoy looking at wild flowers and birds when walking but this is more limited now. A good pub at the end of a walk is always welcome!

I hope to meet a companion for regular walks and possibly walking holidays in the future, in the UK and abroad. I work so I am only free to walk on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and when on holidays from work.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Leo. I'm single and retired with no commitments, so free to walk anytime.

I was brought up in Dorset, and walking the hills and coast path is something I've enjoyed since childhood. I don't consider myself a dedicated walker, so I am very happy to combine walking with some exploration, sight seeing and of course, lunch or coffee.

I would like to meet similar minded men or women who like the outdoors and nature but perhaps would also like to share other interests. Mine include the sea, travel, art, theatre, tennis(beginner) and raquetball. I'm fairly easy going and enjoy new places and experiences.

Finding new friends local to me would be great for regular walks, but I also like to go on walking holidays in the UK or abroad.

Since taking early retirement from teaching I now work freelance delivering the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and I'm available for training, supervising and assessing DofE groups 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 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.

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

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;

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 early 70s, based near Reading hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am retired and do love walking. My wife is not so keen as I am,so I am looking for a walking companion,either male or female. I tend to go locally but can go further afield.I am reasonably fit for my age and I do like to stop and admire the scenery or take some photos. I am interested in swimming.Also cycling...but this tends to be locally following the Thames path and away from traffic. I also like wild swimming normally in the Thames but it could be anywhere. I love visiting Spain and speak tolerable Spanish. I have a few grandchildren which is great.I tried camping in Wales with an outdoor group I belong to and loved it.I know most of the walks within 45 minutes drive from here,so it would be nice to try new areas

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

My Message: I'm an adventurous hiker, walking long distances but also chill out shorter strolls in North Wales, Peak District and Lake District. I'm wishing to meet a female walker friend maybe more who enjoys long walks and which we can enjoy the beautiful countryside and mountains of Britain. I'm currently after Marilyn's in the UK, walking usually on weekends but have a week in the Lake District coming up in late September. If you would like a week of walking please contact me.

I'm active away from walking being a keen cyclist, I enjoy history and visiting places of interest. I'm very fit, having long legs means I cover distances quicker than most but also love a good scramble and prefer clear weather as I enjoy the views from a good summit.

I've climbed Mt Snowdon, Carnedd Llewelyn, Pen yr Ole Wen, hills of Church Stratton Shropshire and hope to doing some long walks in Lake District September 2019. Some female company would be preferred so we both can enjoy some stunning scenery.

If interested please message me. I'm a keen walker who enjoys the outdoors and would like to share it with someone.

A bit more about me:

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 a Male Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Hereford hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am looking for a walking friend who may be retired like myself so that he or she is free to walk during the week as well as at weekends. I walk regularly with a number of groups but prefer to walk at my own pace so that I can stop, take photographs and admire views without being left half a mile behind.
Currently my walking tends to be in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Powys, Monmouthshire, Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons. I really enjoy multi-day linear walking and have done the Pennine Way, Wainwright Coast to Coast, Offa's Dyke, West Highland Way, Cotswold Way and Worcestershire Way. This year I will be walking the Cleveland Way with a Derbyshire based friend.
Although my map reading skills are not brilliant I am proficient with satnavs and always carry a paper map and compass.

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!
