A bit more about me:

I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. 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 am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Kingston hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I'm Mary, looking to meet up with people who are starting out walking on a regular basis.
I live near Kingston, so walks around London, Surrey, and south east are good. I've been on a couple of walking holidays, but would like to incorporate a walk into my week a couple of times a month. I work full time, but it's shift work so times vary and can be available during the week as well as weekend.
My hobbies are cooking, crafts, reading, psychology. I would like to start walking regularly and progress to longer walks which are further afield.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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

My Message: I live in London, but have done lots of long distance path walking and a fair bit of mountain walking in Scotland, Arran, Cairngorms, Mull... I would love to explore more of the countryside, mostly the northern half of the country and Ireland, which I'm sorry to say I've never been to!

I work part-time as a bicycle instructor, helping people to be confident riding on the road. I'm fairly flexible about when I can go away, because I pick my own hours :-).

Don't be put off by the fact that I live in London! I can travel! And of course there are some lovely walks around London.

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

My Message: I'm a recently retired 63 year old living in the Staffordshire Moorlands. I moved here when I retired as I enjoy walking in the Peak District so much but also enjoy walking in other areas. Location isn't too important as I am prepared to travel to meet for a walk.

I am fit and competent and enjoy a challenging walk or an easy walk and I like to take in the views whichever. I am open to any level of walk as it's sometimes good to just get out and it's always good to find a good pub or cafe at the end. As well as walking I also enjoy running and cycling although I can just enjoy being outdoors watching and listening. It's the simple things in life that appeal to me most.

As much as I enjoy the outdoors it is by no means everything to me. I enjoy listening to a lot of music having a very broad taste and especially like live music but not in big venues. I also enjoy cinema and theatre or just having a chat in a café or pub with friends.

It would be great to share the outdoors and other things with a like minded woman though I have a very inquisitive mind and I'd be more than happy to be introduced to new interests.

My boring details are I'm single with no children or any other ties. I'm 5'8" and slim/average build.

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

My Message: Hello, my name is Cliff. I'm slim, fit and active - looking for a female walking companion. I live in a village close to Sevenoaks/Tonbridge. I am divorced, ready to move on and have outdoor interests including clay pigeon shooting. I've been walking for some time with a Wednesday group but would like to walk more than once a week. I've been semi-retired for a while and am interested in most sports. Would prefer to walk locally to begin with. Please get in touch if you would like to know more - there's lots to talk about.

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

My Message: Hi all, I live in the Brighton area and love walking the coastline or on the downs but really would prefer to be walking with someone to share the experience with.
I drive so can travel to meet someone for a walk if it isn't a crazy distance!
I hope to hear from someone as the good weather is here and there are many walks to be had.

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: My name is Steve and I have just turned 67 and live on the edge of Bath. I lost my wife very suddenly 18 months ago and this has been difficult to come to terms with, we used to walk together. I have started doing more things and go walking with a group but that is not my preferred option as I like to be able to stop and take in the views when appropriate, this is not so easy when in a group.
If a walk can be combined with a pub 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 so. Equally I am happy on shorter walks of 5 or 6 miles. We had completed over 75% of the SW Coast Path and I would be interested in other long distance paths such as Wainwrights.
My general interests centre around sport, heritage and environmental issues. I volunteer at a local city farm.
Locally 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. This summer I also have access to a base (caravan) near Sidmouth.
With covid restrictions hopefully ending and the weather improving I hope to be able to find someone to join me on walks.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Bishop Auckland hoping to meet both Male and 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 because of my love of hill-walking. 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 (that's me on the right of the photo). I 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.

My interests are all things musical and 20th Century painting. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2022!! Andy

My Message: My name is Eric. I'm just 69, retired and I live in Surrey between Guildford and Godalming. I'm happily married but my wife does not share a great interest in walking - so I need a supply of buddies! Looking for companions of either gender to walk both locally in SE England and (occasionally) a bit further afield. I'm retired so most days are good walking opportunities. I'm 6' tall and I'm fit for anything the Surrey Hills can throw at me. Usually about 10 miles maximum. I like local history, geography, gardening, old cars. Quietly eccentric with good sense of humour. I try to plan a pub lunch midway in any walk. I'm very happy to devise new walks and visit new places based on OS maps.

My Message: Hi, my name is Heather, I'm in my early 50s and looking for walking companions in my local area: the Hampshire/Surrey border. I also love coastal walks, West Wittering being a particular favourite. To start with I am looking for relaxed people who enjoy walking and talking, ideally for walks of approx 2 hours. Happy to go for longer walks, with lunch or tea breaks, when the weather is better. I love dogs but sadly do not have one of my own anymore. I work in education so am free at weekends or in school holidays.

I enjoy a good laugh and putting the world to rights - I am interested in animals/nature, reading, cinema, theatre, eating out, and socialising with friends.

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.

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

My Message: Enjoy costal walking and walking in the South Downs, hoping to do the English Coast Path (Hampshire, West and East Sussex completed). Happy to do day walks, or a few miles over several days, happy to camp in the summer or b&bs if a bit cooler. Recently retired so happy to walk during week or at weekends.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West England;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

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. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. 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 late 40s, based near Telscombe Cliffs hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I want to meet people that like a good walk and laugh near me in Sussex, though happy to travel a bit further.
Ideally I would like to go early and get at least 5 to 10 miles in, though happy to go on longer walks too. I have been walking for years and did the 100km London to Brighton walk a few years ago. I can walk weekends and evenings when it's light. I would say I have an average fitness level which I want to improve with these walks.
I work full time and love reading, traveling, hanging out with friends, dancing the night away and walking. I also love to laugh and would love to meet someone similar to do this with while walking. Most of my friends will do the odd walk but not regularly and not much more than a few miles. I want to go more regularly, hence the post.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
South East England;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

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. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. 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;

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 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 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, windsurfing, city breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8:9:

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 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:

  • 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 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!

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

My Message: My Free Spirited Walking legs are slightly reduced in capability for the moment hope to be back in the zone of this Bohemian Ridge Walker...soon but the NHS waiting lists are not getting any shorter 🙈 but can still gently cycle.

How about yours ?
With Spirit from within who is Equally adventurous on Barefeet, MTB as a pair of well walked trekking boots...

Most Fri afternoons - week ends can found exploring the many routes of the Elan Valley or southern Cambrians- Walking Companions always welcome to discover new alternative routes - scrambles - experiences along the ridge-tops, canyons and ; hidden treasures of these mystical lands.


if you see me skipping along the ridge tops or clinging on to a side of a cliff with my camera and music in my soul just smile and laugh as you say hi.. love my solo walks but always open to sharing other souls light..
Life is about living with Passion and taking a few risks, sharing with friends & companions who value being at one with the ridge tops as the sun dances into another day with the moon overhead reflecting soulful smiles from below.

are you that female soul-mate companion to share new untold adventures and blank canvasses..

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Wa11 hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello to everyone, I've been a hill and mountain walker for years now. In my 60s, I am inclined to sit on a comfortable rock and watch the world go by. During a walk on a nice day. I have backed packed round the world with a friend just a few years ago and would like to do it again in the not to distant future.

I would like to meet females for new adventures. I'm happy to do any grade of walk. From half a day on the flat to a couple of days backpacking in the hills. Camping B+Bs Pubs or Hotels. I can do weekdays and weekends.

Many thanks, hope to hear from you.

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 Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Netley Abbey hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I have quite an active job, so my fitness level is good, I enjoy coastal and country walks, nice to sometimes have a purpose such as a decent walk to a lovey country pub and back making a nice day of it.
Love walking abroad and have travelled to many countries such as Crete, Morocco, Alaska, Kenya, Spain, etc.
It's always nice to be able to have a nice chat along the way, maybe even a picnic lunch I'm always happy to carry the picnic backpack.
I prefer the company of women while walking mainly because it's easier to smile, and I'm not a great football fan. I enjoy wildlife, nature, photography, and travel.
