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

My Message: Hi, my name is Julie, I am single, 59yrs old, a secretary in a school (so lots of lovely holidays) and enjoy walking. My friends unfortunately aren't really keen on walking and I would like to find someone/small group of friends/like minded people to go out for the day or weekend exploring the countryside, preferably at weekends. I was an assessor with the Duke of Edinburgh so can read a map reasonably well. Would like to think I am good company, good fun, easy going, enjoy a good laugh and a lively debate. I do have a small dog, so must like dogs. Would really enjoy some good company and to the end the day in a nice pub with good food and a well earned glass of wine. ps I haven't done much walking for a while, so a little unfit.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

My Message: Hi,

There's no record breaking walking in me unless well planned and I've other interests that keep me exercised and outdoors too but I'm very keen to meet a local walking partner... for local walking

.... one who might encourage me to try new walks and more challenging ones - and be happy to take a welcome break on the way or at the end.

So if you like walking on my side of the lakes, by national park, Bowland forest or Malhamdale please get in touch. Occasionally further afield is fine too.

I keep to walks up to 8 miles generally but im happy with more or just a 4-5 mile on my own.... a lot depends on time or terrain. I like to set off in the dry when the views are sharp & be prepared for rain if I must.

I generally know my walking paths (& like to be near water ) - that's why im unused to map reading - but can if I must.

With Best wishes. Alyson

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!

My Message: Hi, I live in Perthshire and have spent many years walking the hills in Scotland and abroad both with friends and animals (dogs). Over the last few years I have not been able to maintain that level of fitness, so now find myself starting at the beginning again. Would love to meet up with new friends who would like to join me getting back to fitness and enjoying nature and the hills once more. Initially would be looking for slower paced, shorter walks and would love to have the company of a dog once more, so if you have a dog, even better!!!

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)

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

My Message: Hi!

I'm fairly new to Cumbria -having recently moved to the area - after many years ambition to do so! So, primarily looking for male/female friends 'into the outdoors' - mainly fell walking/scrambling and Munro bagging. In the main, I walk with my best friend and very fit ESS (English Springer Spaniel.) So, you must like dogs and be fit!

I now have all the Wainwrights 'in the bag' but require a bigger bag for the Munros with still over 184 to complete. This requires more travelling over the border and would prefer to do with an affable and experienced walking partner. HA! If you are up for that - good news!

I have recently started camping again - and would welcome the opportunity to wild camp.

I have travelled extensively and trekked in many parts of the world - but always the UK I return to - and love.

I'm not looking for a relationship per se - just friends to share my love of the outdoors, hopefully with a good line in chat, ability not to take things (themselves) too seriously and up for a bit of 'leg pulling!'Enjoying the craic!'

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

My Message: Hi all,

I'm a mid-forties male, and I would like to meet new walking friends, male or female to spend time walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside.
I enjoy both Long Distance Paths and shorter walks too. I also enjoy weekends spent walking with a rural pub or two thrown in. Allegedly I'm experienced at map reading and navigating, although that doesn't necessarily mean I always finish the walk at the intended time!

At the end of April or early May 2019, I'm going to walk the Wainwright Coast to Coast trail and take my trusty 2.1kg tent with me. That said, I could be persuaded to use a B&B on the route too!
It would be lovely if anyone reading this would like to join me for some or all of the way! Please do get in touch if you fancy the coast to coast in whatever guise.

If the c2c isn't your thing, do get in touch anyway if you fancy getting out n about on a trail or three. Thanks for reading..

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. 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 can drive. I do not have my own vehicle but can borrow or rent one.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • 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;

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 mid 50s, based near Buxton hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi there!
New Years Resolution - more walking! I like to get out at least one day of the weekend, for a full days walk if possible. My average walk is around 10 miles, but happy to go for less or more depending on season and conditions. Would like to do a distance path this summer, maybe the Anglesey Coastal Path or the Dales Way. Have previously walked the Great Glen Way and sections of the Coast to Coast and Peninne Way...lets see where the path takes us!

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 3:4:5:6:7:

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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'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;
  • 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;

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 60s, based near Harrogate hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I am making an early New Year resolution to do more walking. I have my favourite walks but would like to add some new ones to my repertoire. I am looking for someone to enjoy these walks with me, and perhaps share some good company too. I am retired so am flexible about when we walk.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

My Message: Hi. I'm a 53 year old male from Manchester looking for a female walking partner. Love being outdoors and enjoy walking in the Lakes, Lancashire, Dales, Peak District and further afield. I walk all year round and in most weather. I have hiked a few Munros and would love to get some more climbed if you are up for that! Just as happy to walk river banks, reservoirs etc. and enjoy finishing the day in a country pub.

I like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive and have a car.

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

My Message: Hi there

I live in the Ribble Valley/Trough of Bowland, and have some lovely country lane walks on the doorstep, from a quick 30 minute trot, to a few hours paw stretching

I love going up the Lakes, and it doesn't take a lot of persuasion to get me there

Whilst not a hardened hiker, I do love a good walk there, especially with the dangling carrot of lunch at The Swan at Newby Bridge or tea at The Cuckoo Brow at Far Sawrey

If there longer than a day, I normally stay over in Bowness, and have been know to enjoy the odd swift one, or a cocktail or two...

If you fancy joining me, then drop by and say hello...

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

My Message: Hi, I'm on the lookout for new walking companions that share my passion for hill walking. I try to get out into the North York Moors or Dales as frequently as possible. Weekends to Snowdonia and Cumbria are always treasured. I usually manage to walk abroad once a year (the Julian Alps in Slovenia are my absolute favourite). Would love to hook up with like minded people to share a walk or two so please get in touch. Thanks Patrick.

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

My Message: Hi there, Lover of nature and my ideal day is a scenic walk and prefer an amble rather than fast pace ramble so can take it all in. Good map readers especially welcome as I was last in the queue when senses of direction were handed out! I'm free most weekends and sometimes mid week. If anyone local, early evening walks on the long days of spring/summer!

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

My Message: I am passionate about the hills, wild places and like a challenge. I am an experienced hillwalker but equally enjoy social walks. I'm easy going and have a good soh. Semi-retired so can walk in the week as well as at week-ends. I usually walk with groups - or alone to practice navigation (which I am reasonable at). I have walked a lot in Scotland, North Wales and Europe but it would be nice to explore the local area more. So it would be good to meet up with like-minded walking buddies as its always better to share the experience. Having recently moved to the Yorkshire dales - there are lots of tempting hills and long distance paths!! Looking for walking companions to share walks particularly in the Lake district and/or the Yorkshire dales to do moderate/strenuous walks.
