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

My Message: Hi, my name is Ray, hoping to meet a female walking buddy, not really into the group walking thing,
Like to do most of my walking in the lakes, but also enjoy wales, and have done quite a bit in the Peak District.
I'm currently past the half way mark on the wainwrights, but not doing them in a fanatical way, prefer to enjoy the walk and views.
I do most of my walking at weekends, also like to have long weekend breaks in my touring caravan, and usually head towards the lakes.
Never done any serious walking abroad, but this is something that I would like to do one day.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands;
(click each link to see other walkers wanting to walk there)

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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;
  • Road Cycling

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 40s, based near Leicester 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 day hikes during the week as I work the weekends? Although this may well change in the near future to becoming a weekend warrior. 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 Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Brighton hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: White male aged 66, 40 years walking experience, living in Sussex, fit and friendly seeks to meet an adventurous male or woman walking companion aged about 40+ for walking local and national trails together in the UK and in Europe. Any individual willing to explore the hidden and interesting bye ways of Britain, if warm sleep out during the summer and enjoy a few beers at the end of a days challenging walking, before England and Wales become so sanitized it will look like a theme park( see George Monbiot).

Probably suitable for someone living in London or the South-East but, but if practicable, I would not exclude other contacts from around the country. Most important is the love of the countryside, coastal paths and Highlands of Scotland, quiet places and friendly conversation.

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.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 30s, based near Staffordshire hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. I am looking at meeting up with people who are keen to go walking. I don't drive and as such, that mostly limits me to the Peak District and the Lake District (and spending a couple of days (overnight in a hostel) is even better due to time constraints of public transport), but otherwise i can go anywhere. I consider myself reasonably fit and have some ability to read a map but it is not perfect! I get to where i want to go. I like challenging and adventurous walking, however it's not important to me that anyone else does; the company is important! I'm not super-experienced in hill-walking either; but i have done some.
Apart from that i am also looking to walk the Pennine Way (in it's entirety), maybe there is someone else interested in that too?

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

My Message: I am looking to meet fellow walkers, and am happy to travel further afield than Yorkshire. I am fairly fit as I walk my dog every day and volunteer in my local woods, but my mapreading skills need some improvement. I have helped to lead group walks in Spain (where I lived for a while near the border with Portugal) and Portugal. I have lived in Scotland, London, Derbyshire and Essex, and now Yorkshire. Walking-wise, I am happy to try anything - I have walked up Ben Nevis, around South West Scotland, Suffolk, the Peak District, and North Devon. I enjoy drawing and craftwork, and real ale, so a pub is definitely on the agenda during the walk! I would be looking to meet up at weekends as I work during the week. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sue

I prefer gentle strolls of between two and ten miles. Not too keen on the more route march style of walking.
I'm a keen photographer and like to stop occasionally to take photos of the views (only for a minute or so, not an hour setting up kit :-) )
I enjoy canal walks and I don't mind the rain as long as it's not torrential :-)

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 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.. great website! I moved up to County Durham in 2010 because of work and previous love of the scenery. I did Pennine Way 30 years ago (and love revisiting bits of it), the Dales Way, WHW, Great Glen Way, Dava Way, Isaac's Tea Trail. I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland. Although I'd like to walk C2C sometime too, shorter circular walks are just as appealing. I enjoyed the 2014 Hadrians Wall Trekathon and raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support. I don't have a dog to growl at you and always prefer human company to share the walk with. Am free many weekends (when not being musical) and am looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2018!! AND if it says I'm in my early 60s, that's not until mid-May 2018. Andy

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 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 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 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 and the theatre. I'm vegetarian ( you don't have to be) and a good 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 Female Walker, in my early 40s, based near Cheltenham hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi. My name is Silke (German, living and working in the UK since 2013) and I'd be happy to meet cheerful people who like going for a walk. In July 2017 I did the Cotswold Way Challenge (100k in one go from Bath to Cheltenham for Amnesty International) and made amazing friends. Signed up for the Jurassic Coast Challenge 2018 for Doctors Without Borders. I'm a big lover of dogs, local pubs and beer ;-), food (I'm vegan but I don't care what other people eat), pole fitness, music, film. I don't have a car, so I can usually be found in my area walking one of my beloved borrow doggies (I've got two, not ten, lol, and so far I walk them separately).
If you wanna join me, get in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you x

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 60 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 perhaps in a camper van or narrowboat walking and exploring. 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 look 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. 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 Male Walker, in my late 50s, based near Keswick hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am a 59 year old single male living in the Lake District. I enjoy being outdoors walking, running, cycling and camping.

I am fit and competent and enjoy a challenging walk or an easy walk and I like to take in the views whichever - I don't want to be too serious about it! 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. It's the simple things in life that appeal to me most. I like to see the beauty in natural surroundings, love woods especially in autumn, watching and listening to birds, sun rise and sun set, starry skies, wood smoke, the scent of gorse flower in the summer.

I am looking to meet a woman who enjoys being outdoors amongst other things. Your location isn't too important - I am prepared to travel to meet for a walk as I enjoy walking in many areas. I'm not into exchanging emails for too long but prefer to talk, then maybe meet, see what happens and just take it from there.

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

Hope to hear from you!

I am a Male Walker, in my late 40s, based near Burntwood.

My Message: Hi Ive been a member of this site for sometime and am just returning to it from a long absence.
I particularly enjoy walking and camping in the Peak District and the Brecon Beacons.
I was in the military for a long time so enjoy all levels of gradient and am up for a challenge, most of the time.
I love to take my dogs with me when I walk although the border terrier (Laughing Gravy) is getting a little old now.
I'm out of the UK a lot and so finding friends to walk with can be difficult.
I hope that I can arrange meets with similar minded people for long mountainous walks and strolls.

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

My Message: Hi fellow walkers, living in North East Derbyshire gives me easy access to the Peak District and Wales, Northumberland and the Lakes are 3-4 hours away and need a lot more exploration. The closer I am to water, the better. I am happy to walk 10-15miles (and have done 22 by accident, a longer story...), scrambling is not my forte (fear of heights...I know) but standing on top of a hill feels so good. Could you help me with my map reading? I don't get lost, I just find new places in unexpected ways and it may take a bit longer to get back home but those walks turn out to be the best. That's the adventurer in me. This adventurer has a tent in the car just in case, sets off for France without a fixed plan or goes out on the motorbike to see what's round the next corner. Once I sit down I read, write, play Scrabble and enjoy the views over the open countryside from the patio. Outdoors is a good place and I'd love to hear from you if you want to share it. I have joined a couple of walking groups and they are very welcoming but not all walks have to be with a bunch of people. If you want to join me solo or with the bunch please get in touch and let's see where it takes us.
Safe walking, Karen

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.
Jackie

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

My Message: I like nothing more than a day walk, any time of year, whatever the weather. I prefer a more challenging walk over a stroll. 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 work unsocial hours and three weekends out of four at present (good old nhs) but have plenty of free days midweek.
