I am a Female Walker, in my early 70s, based near London Ontario Canada hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello fellow walkers. I am a 70+ year old Canadian female who visits the UK yearly. I hope to visit fall 2019 and am open to finding walking companions in the Lake District, Yorkshire, central and southwest England. I am not up for steep elevations but more leisurely climbs are OK. About Me: When not out and about I knit, cook, read, putter in my garden, lunch with friends, visit art galleries/museums and travel. I hope to meet for good exercise, conversation and social times as I love to end my walks at a pub or cafe. Get in touch if you have an interest in joining me.

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. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive but do not have access to a vehicle.

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!

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

My Message: Love walking from the flats to the hills. Walked snowdon 5 times in the past. Love the Peak District as much as the forests. Don't drive but don't let it stop me... hence jump a train to go out for the day to places Long Mynd..Mam Tor...Kinder Scout. I equally enjoy the sitting and taking in the view. Looking to meet up with anyone who enjoys a stroll and loves the countryside. I have been fortunate to have been well travelled around Scotland and Wales and camping in the process.

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

My Message: Mid-40s professional bloke, fairly straight forward, looking for company for walks. I live in Essex, work in Cambridge and grew up in Northumbria. Happy to walk for a short walk round a park but i dream of treks across hills and moors.

After a life change last year, i have a bit more time in my life to do what i like to do which is being outdoors. I have re-freshed my camping and walking kit, and i'm getting some miles in. Looking for company, either locally for regular walks, or a bit further afield for longer ones.

PS i had a bicycle crash 6 months ago and broke a kneecap (ouch), i'm still building strength but i reckon i could handle up to 10 miles max now and further in 6 months time. (i'm a strider not a stroller)

Box No: 106351

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

My Message: I'm based 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 recently (2017) taken to my tent again after many years, so a bike ride with tent (and maybe skis) turns into a splendid adventure. 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!

Until recently, I worked 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've made the move (end 2015) to working from home, in my own time, so I'm freed from the weekends-only bids for the outdoors.

Oh, and my name is Robert.

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

My Message: Hello, UPDATE - would anyone like to walk together up Ben Nevis on Monday 3rd September 2018? Very last minute idea. Would like to walk the tourist path. Not confident enough to tackle alone due to lack of navigation skills. Mountain forecast for Monday seems fine. Pls message me if interested!

Hello, I am single, currently living in the Northamptonshire area and would like to meet male or female walking partners to explore more of the UK. Have been a member of this site for a few years but returning to it after an absence. I am open to suggestions and able to travel.I have done a fair amount of walking in far flung places abroad and some here in the UK (Snowdon and Peak District), reasonably fit, can do a bit of scrambling but am not a climber. Am open to BandBs, hostels or possibly camping, though I am not an experienced camper and don't yet have equipment! My map and navigation skills are not good, so would welcome someone with these skills so we don't get hopelessly lost. I am easy going and enjoy cafe's/coffee shops and a country pub but am not a big drinker.

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

My Message: Hi! I'm a fun-loving, adventurous guy living in Newbury, Berkshire. I'm happy walking alone, but it's so much more fun (and better conversation) with two so I'm looking for male or female friends to join me on walks locally (around Berks/Hants/Wilts) or further afield (anywhere really - from Cornwall to Scotland, Snowdonia to Norfolk).

I also enjoy scrambling (tho' not great with heights), cycling (more off-road than on), camping (wild or civilised), flying kites - I'm essentially very adaptable! I'm happy to explore any areas of the UK - the wilder the better - so if you're interested in joining me then please drop me a line.

ps: I love dogs and have my own, but he's not great with distances so tends to stay at home mostly, unless it's a short walk and my company likes dogs.

My Message: Hi There, I'm looking to meet new people/friends to go on some nice walks or camping/kayaking adventures with in the UK or abroad. I live in London but grew up in the country and I'm struggling to find people that love the outdoors and escaping the city as much as I do, or that don't have other responsibilities. I am happy hiking all day or multi day hikes, I also love a bit of kayaking, bouldering, pretty much anything that burns a bit of energy and I am more than happy to drive wherever for a nice walk and chat.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Bristol.

My Message: Hello, I'd like to meet another walker who lives in Bristol where I live. I already have a great walking mate in the South West that I spend time with, and meeting up with someone very close to home would be good as well. I'm only interested in walking with women. Oh, but importantly, I don't own a car, so instead can travel by train and meet you if necessary. That seems to work out fine with my other walking mate. I don't do high energy marching type of walking, and anything over eight miles, would be a long walk for me.

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

My Message: 50 year old single, professional female looking for male/female friends to walk with. Not keen on walking in groups - prefer the company of just one or two others. Things just get straggly in groups don't they? I have dogs and am happy to walk with or without them. I also have a 15 year old human and am happy to walk with/without teen humans (mine is often reluctant but might be tempted if we find a like-minded companion). I have had quite a long spell of not walking following both an Achilles then back injury sustained in unrelated unfortunate events, so I'm pleased to be back in my boots! Have car and happy to lift-share or not. Saturdays are often marginally better for me than Sundays but that's not set in stone, or shorter after work walks in lighter evenings. Other interests include travel, cooking, good wine, reading, music (live and local, often folky or indie by preference), cinema. One day I'd like to begin having a go at a long distance walk or two, so if I find a companion who'd be up for that too it would be great - but not a dealbreaker if you only fancy one-day walks.

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. 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;
  • 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 Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Templecombe hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I'm a 51 year old female living in Henstridge Somerset and working nearby. I really enjoy walking and the great outdoors and although very happy with my own company it would be great to walk with others sometimes anything up to 20 miles. Although I'm single I'm not looking for anything more than walking companions. I'm pretty ok with map reading and although I own a compass I'm useless with it but would love to learn. Pub visits/lunches etc are always a plus - that's when my pace really quickens! I'm happy to drive anywhere and I'm free most weekends and during the lighter months evenings too. Lisa

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. I'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

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

My Message: Hi, I am Matt and I live on the outskirts of London on the edge of Essex. I am looking for a walking buddy of any age (preferably female as I enjoy female company- on a platonic basis) as my previous walking partner has moved overseas and I am keen to try and start walking more regularly again.

My friends are either tied up with family or not walkers and while I sometimes enjoy walking alone I also enjoy conversation as well as a good laugh.

I am used to walking coastal walks or rural walks in the home counties and have walked in Buckinghamshire, Essex, Kent, East Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire but don't have much experience of hills/peaks although am keen to try. I am comfortable walking 12-15 miles and have walked 20 miles on a couple of occasions albeit on flat terrain.

I have an average level of fitness which I want to improve. I am keen to walk in the South East/home counties but could also venture further afield to East Anglia, South West or Midlands (anywhere within 2-3 hrs drive really) as I have a car and enjoy driving. I would be keen to maybe try some longer paths/routes like SWCP or similar but above all else want to have fun and be outdoors with like-minded people.

I work full time in the week so weekends are best although I could take the odd day off from time to time. My other interests include yoga, swimming, reading, art, music and cinema.

If anyone is keen to plan a day out soon then please contact me :)

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Nantwich.

My Message: Hi
I am 62,female and looking for walking companions or groups. My level of walking is up to about grades 7/8.
I am fit and fun, as well as able to go the distance. I walk at a steady pace with no forced marches or unseemly need to prove myself. Took up walking 3 years ago, so very amateur in maps etc. Want to get to know different parts of the Lakes and Snowdonia at weekends and even some weekdays. This year have done Annapurna base camp, toubkal Morocco, picos dos europas, and Everest base camp 2 weeks ago.Love the Himalayas. South America and others await.
Please contact me if you are interested.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near Bourne.

My Message: Hi, Female walker looking to meet up with male/female kindred spirit. Reasonably experienced and fit I can walk week ends and midweek. Although the Peak district is nearest to me I am willing to travel to new walks in different areas. An inspiring, energetic hike, whether in the hills or following local footpaths with a packed lunch followed by a pub meal is a day well spent, and better shared. So if you're local or further a field and think we may get along, I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Chelmsford.

My Message: Hi, This summer I started walking the South West Coast Path (47 miles down, 583 to go!) I thoroughly enjoyed the walking and the beautiful scenery, and I'm hoping to complete a few more miles next year, but I need to develop my hill fitness... not easy to do whilst living in the flat lands of Essex! I'm looking for someone to tackle the hills with and, obviously, I'm going to have to travel, which isn't a problem. I'm not very tall so, despite going at a reasonable pace for me, I'm unable to match the stride length of anyone who prefers to march on at speed. I like to walk and talk, stop to take photos, and to marvel at the incredible views. Are you someone with good map-reading and navigational skills? Would you be happy to walk with me at my pace and understand that I'm actually walking pretty quickly for me? Do you enjoy a chat and a laugh? I work part-time so I'm available from Thursday to Monday and I'm keen to get out there as soon as possible. I love the sunshine and don't mind the cold (I walked in the Peak District in snowy November) but, I'm not so keen on rain - a bit of light drizzle is OK but if it's pouring down... I'd rather find a nice tearoom or pub. If you think you can share some hills with me, please get in touch. I'm also open to walks in counties and National Parks other than those listed. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Marlow.

My Message: Hello, I am hoping to find male or female interested in joining me for the highest peaks in North Pennines, North Yorkshire Dales and Northumbria. I've been enjoying the hills for 20 plus years. It all started with a great crowd in Lancashire and Manchester. We met every month to do the Lakes or Wales and whilst living in Stockport I would try to get to the Lakes or Peak District at weekends too.
Now, living in the South of England, vertially on the Chiltern Way, the landscape is rambling and picturesque, but I miss the great times in the North. Hence I have set myself the challenge of climbing the HEWITTS (England to start with). 56 of 180 done so far. I tend to walk solo and drive North on a Friday to do an afternoon peak/s and then main peaks Saturday and Sunday.
For me the greatest challenge is Time as I have a family, work and getting away at weekends can prove tricky.
I'm happy to meet up with anyone in the local areas mentioned or drive up with you too. Even though my navigation is ok, I'd prefer someone with a good sense of direction!
Happy walking and may your waterproofs never fail :D Caroline

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Berkhamsted.

My Message: Hi, I am Nick and a keen walker in my seventies but don't feel it! Would appreciate a bit of female company on my trips out. I am a photographer and keen on the countryside and all it has to offer. Lucky enough to live close to it from my home in Berkhamsted. So if you fancy a stroll or a longer walk it would be great to hear from you.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Aylesbury.

My Message: Hello,

I am retired and single with plenty of time to indulge my love of walking. I walk sometimes alone and sometimes with local walking groups. I would very much like to expand on that by finding a new friend or friends to walk with on a one to one basis. I live in Aylesbury so the Chilterns are on my doorstep but I am more than happy to try other areas. Recent walking holidays were in Wales and Yorkshire and I was born and raised near the Lake District.

I am more interested in spending time in the outdoors, stopping to enjoy the views and ending in a pub, than in ticking off particular challenges. A typical walk for me would be between 6 and 12 miles. More than that on a good day!

If that sounds good to you drop me a line and we can take it from there.

Brian

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 40s, based near Swindon.

My Message: Hello my name is Edward, I am 46, and single. I am looking for a female walking companion. I have not walked for a few years but want to get back in to it. I did think of joining The Ramblers but, I am quite shy, and do not like large groups of people. I am going on holiday to East Devon on 30th September for a week, and would love to go for a walk's with some company. Currently I do not work but, am looking for work, and doing some volunteering in the meantime. I am based in Swindon, Wiltshire but, am willing to travel to meet people for walks in most of the South West, and South Wales. However, I would be prepared to go further afield for a planned trip / holiday. I can assure you that I am a honest, respectful, and concientious person who has good intentions, and would like to make some new friends. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further information, and I will happily oblige. Thank you for reading my profile.
