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

My Message: Hi I'm based near Weardale and am hoping to find new female walking friends locally and further afield. I love the Lakes, Yorkshire, Peak District and would like to get to know Scotland and hope to plan a short multiday walk and maybe then build up to some of the longer UK trails. I enjoy walks of any length up to 10-12 miles. I like to stop and enjoy the views as well as having a chat whilst we go. I also enjoy gardening, running, mountain biking and motorcycling.I do work full time as a chartered surveyor but Im available most weekends, some weekdays and once the days get longer evenings.I look forward to hearing from you.

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. I'm happy to walk in most weathers but do not like snow and ice. 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 also interested in:

  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking
  • Trail Running

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

My Message: Hello, I'm on the lookout for new walking companions that share my passion for walking in the hills. I try to get out into the North York Moors or Dales as frequently as possible. Weekends in Snowdonia and Cumbria are always treasured. I'm trying to expand my general wildlife knowledge and have also started dabbling in some basic foraging. 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 folk to share a walk or two so please get in touch. Thanks for reading. Patrick.

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 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:

  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding
  • All Walking & Treking

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 late 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 late-forties male, and I would like to meet new walking friends, male or female to spend time walking and enjoying our wonderful countryside and just being outdoors.

I enjoy all forms of walking, multi-day, long distance paths and less strenuous day walks too. Oddly enough my walks usually end at a nice country pub or two! There is nothing nicer than a lovely pub at the end of a great days walking.
I'm experienced at map reading and navigating and I enjoy the planning of walks on both traditional paper maps and also using GPS.
Sometimes I'll take a lightweight tent and camp and make it an outdoors weekend or stay in a B&B.
My 'bread and butter' walking area is Yorkshire but I'm equally happy anywhere in the countryside.

I work part-time; so I've some availability on a weekday and also some weekends too. If you want someone to walk with who ( probably!) won't get you lost and has a good sense of humour, that would be me! Please do drop me a line..

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; The Heart of England; South West England;

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 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 but do not have access to a vehicle.

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 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 62 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.

My Message: Hi I'm hoping to meet some new friends for half day walks initially until fitness levels are built up. Still working so can only meet up at weekends at present but hoping to spend many happy days in retirement walking chatting and laughing along the way. Food and drink on the way either picnic or good pub is an added bonus. Any area in North west or North Wales good for me. Happy to start with a chat until Covid regs are relaxed 😌

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

My Message: Hi all,
My name is Bry, looking primarily for walking partner(s) in the Yorkshire area but am also mobile and with a keen desire to explore new areas once the current regulations permit this.
I am physically in reasonable shape, ex military (Royal Navy) and currently work at sea in the commercial Geoscience sector, so geophysical / geotechnical seabed surveys for the oil and gas, wind and cable industries. This means I am away for a few weeks at a time, but when not at sea have complete freedom. I am currently single with no ties, and try and spend as much time as possible in the hills. Currently restricted to the moors around Ilkley due to national constraints, but love driving to the Dales for longer walks. I consider myself of above average fitness for my age, but always room for improvement. Would not be adverse to overnight trips or expeditions, have a love of exploration that won't seem to go away. I am fortunate to be well travelled, have done hikes in Antarctica, Falklands and South America amongst others but don't let that put you off.
Laid back, articulate and confident. Will walk with anyone of any ability for companionship, would not rule out anything more if there was any chemistry but not looking for that to be a defining reason for being on here.
Sky is the limit, so please get in touch if you want to know more, chat or maybe arrange a meet. I consider myself socially responsible, so will need to be within current guidelines for meeting until things change. Current situation wont last forever!

Box No: 213784

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

My Message: My absolute best place to be is outdoors walking the hills, dales, valleys... feeling freeee and being amongst the natural world. I've enjoyed walking for many years, and although never been a big mountaineer myself, over the years I have found myself drawn to these dramatic landscapes (Skye, The Hebrides, Glencoe, Scotland, The Lakes). I am equally besotted with the other end of the UK being fortunate enough to have lived in the south west region for just over a couple of years and was absolutely blown away by the coast walking and Dartmoor. However being a Yorkshire lass the Dales feature regularly. (I'm also very happy to have an amble around my own neck of the woods with my little dog who is getting a bit too old now for longer hikes).
I'm preety flexible on when and where I can walk and I would like to think I am fairly fit (though those knees can sometimes play up). My usual distance these days is between 6-8 miles although it would be great to work towards longer walks when daylight hours allow. I'm afraid I have never learned the skill of map reading (oh dear you would have thought that would have been ticked off by now - really!)so that would be useful if you can map read - although I have several walking books which line my book shelf to support the maps ?!
So if you fancy doing some post lockdown walks and sharing a sarni and a flask en route it would be good to hear from you.

My Message: Hello, I'm Mark I enjoy walking and discovering places. I occasionally lead walks for my friends or just enjoy a walk on my own. Most walks end up with a pint or a meal. I'm looking to meet someone who enjoys the scenery and wildlife and enjoys a occasional challenge. I'm currently trying to do all the peaks in the Yorkshire Dales over 2000ft and get a few Wainwrights done but not in any great rush.I also do a bit of mountain biking now and then (no mad off road down hill routes). Look forward to hearing from anyone with similar interests. P.s. not having much luck downloading a new photo.

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

My Message: Hi, my name is Colin and I enjoy exploring some of the beautiful countryside around the North-East. E.g. the Yorkshire Moors and Dales. I am looking for a walking partner to join me and, when the walk is suitable, my Golden Retriever, Dudley. I am retired so I am available most days. As my wife isn't interested in the great outdoors or walking, it's often just me and Dudley and it can be quite challenging trying to keep an eye on Dudley and follow a walk at the same time. I would appreciate a partner both for company and for a 'second pair of eyes' when following a walk. I'm very quiet, easy-going and not very adventurous so tend not to do anything risky. Please drop me a line if you are interested in joining me some time. By the way, I also enjoy a pint of beer but it must be real ale!

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 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 like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).
Just spent 5 days in Matlock which was great. The weather not so, but I got some good walks in. It's just a shame nobody could share the enjoyment with me.

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

My Message: I am a very active 64yr old with a fun sense of humour and enjoy interesting conversation, have a wide range of interests.
Have just purchased a tent and hope to go away for longer breaks around the UK next year but also do hostels and cottages. Have done some activity holidays which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Enjoy walking but also like to have the opportunity to take in the scenery and wildlife. Love hill walking but also enjoy coastal walks where can take in a dip in the sea. I
am retired and intend to live it to the full, anyone out there feel the same?

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 2:3:4:5:6:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; 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. 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 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;
  • Mountain Biking
  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding

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 in my early 60's 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. I have recently bought a campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will keep myself and others safe. 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...

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 and have a car.

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

My Message: Hi
Im in my 50's - fit enough to handle a good challenge walk (done the Lyke Wake a few times) - ive also walked the Coast to Coast, and would be very happy to do it again some time - but am equally as happy gently strolling through the countryside stopping at the occasional pub:)
I enjoy walking on the North Yorkshire Moors/Coast, the Peak District and the Lake District.
I have a campervan, but am not averse to something a bit more luxurious in the way of a hotel or country inn!!

Im hoping to find a likeminded Lady Walker who would like the occasional weekend away, whatever the weather. - map reading skills useful but not essential!!! If anyone would like a quiet walking and eating getaway in North Yorkshire or the Peak District over Christmas do get in touch!!

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

My Message: I've been walking for the past 20 years. For a long time because of work commitments and raising my children I didn't have time for long distance walking, but now I have time and am keen to do as many as I can. I'm particularly keen to do the Beacon Way (Brecon Beacons), Coast to coast, and The Two moors way, to start....But I'm open to any long distance walks. I know the days are getting shorter but I'd love to get in a few long walks before the end of the year. If interested, male or female, please contact me. Many thanks Mary

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

My Message: I like to get out in the hills as often as possible but I don't go bagging Munros just to get back and tick it off a list.
I go to enjoy the beauty of our country and take my time and breath in fresh air.
I love Caledonia, the north west highlands to me are the most beautiful place on planet earth and I've traveled extensively.
I don't go climbing or in the snow and ice anymore as I have done in the past.
I don't mind it being cold and fresh though. I always go into the mountains fully prepared, map, compass, waterproofs etc. Just common sense things because anything can happen at any time.
I have done a lot of walking in Scotland but also enjoy the lakes, and the dales etc, doesn't have to be a long or high up walk, pleasurable and fun is what it's all about to me.
Would like to meet others to enjoy a good time out and about, not just on high peaks, any walk can be a good one, it's what you make of it. Finding a nice pub at the end is a bonus too.
I'm going up to the north west highlands from 15th June for two weeks and going to tackle Slioch, An Teallach, Stac Pollaidh, Suilven amongst others. Cape Wrath too.
Before that I hope to be up in the lakes most weekends depending on the weather.

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 have enjoyed hill walking since my childhood - It gives me a sense of freedom, space and challenge. I feel that 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 the scenery. I walked the Pennine Way 30+ years ago 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 hope to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020. I enjoy regular walking in the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, Scottish Highlands, the Borders and Northumberland with a fantastic local fell walking club and am free many weekends and during the school holiday times.I am a musician who teaches in County Durham schools and at the Sage Gateshead. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy 2020!! Andy

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). I would love to meet up with new friends who would like to join me walking and enjoying nature and the hills at home or abroad. Initially would be looking medium paced walks and would love to have the company of a dog once more, so if you have a dog, even better!!! If what I have said appeals then please drop me a line and hopefully we can find some great walks together.

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

My Message: I love walking, everything about it. What could be better than sitting down with a glass of wine and planning a walk.
Then there's the excitement of arriving at your walks starting point (usually a pub car park if it's a circular walk)
The anticipation as you lace up your boots and the adrenaline rush as you set off on your way. The endorphins kick in, you get warm, remove a layer ( i can never work out exactly the right clothes to walk in )
The scenery is beautiful, you catch a glimpse of a deer, a buzzard, a moth or a cowslip.
I often get lost ( Its not getting lost, its going on an adventure) i usually get muddy and sometimes i fall over.
Then there's the relief as your sore feet sense the end of the walk. A nice pint and a pack of crisps or nuts, maybe a meal by a fire.
These are all wonderful things, but so much more when shared with a like minded friend.
