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

My Message: I've always been interested in hiking up mountains but never gave myself the time for it. I'm wanting to learn to read a map and navigate properly, and put more effort in and build experience so i can tackle the more exposed ridges.
I want build up to walk the west highland way, finished with Nevis, and also the pennine way. Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro is also a target of mine.
I have kids every other weekend, so it will be my weekends without I'm available.. Once they're a little older they will come with me.

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

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

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. 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:

  • 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 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 40s, based near Rotherham hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am looking to meet people who own boots and wellies and don't mind getting them covered in mud. I am happy to meet people of any age who shared a love of the outdoors and doesn't mind me stopping from time to time to take photographs.

The Peak District is on my doorstep, but have walked in areas including Wales, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, Assynt in Scotland. I have been up Ben Nevis, Snowdon, and Scafell Pike, but would happily walk there again.

I have done the three peaks in the Yorkshire Dales but over a couple of days.

I work full time in a college, but school holidays and weekends I am free. Evening walks are possible if they are local.

My level of fitness is good and improving, though that is a story to share during a walk.

I am a life member of English Heritage and the National Trust. As such I can visit such places with a guest. I love photography, history, wildlife etc. I would rather not talk about education or computing (Unless its for a good cause).

My walking aims are to look at amazing views, Camp in amazing places including a plot of land I can wild camp on in Scotland, and just enjoy it all.

If you are cold, wet, have been rained on all day and can still smile then anything is possible.

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

My Message: I've been walking mostly in the Peak District, where I live, and the Lake District recently. I've been ticking off Wainwrights and have only 8 to go and I've started on the Birketts. I'm a widower and retired so can walk midweek and have mostly been walking alone for a number of years. I'm very fit for my age and like longer mountain walks. I've also walked in France, Spain, Germany, Italy Greece and Turkey. I've even done a bit of sport climbing in the last few years - rock climbing was a passion many years ago. I've also rediscovered an interest in photography and have been a yoga practitioner for more than 30 years. I don't like walking in large groups unless it's just a social occasion (like a friends 80th birthday recently).

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for fellow walkers to share the joys of the great outdoors with followed by a well earned beer or meal! I am fairly fit and for me I like being out being out there in the countryside listening to the birds. seeing the wild flowers, enjoying the views as much as bagging peaks - although this is always an added bonus. I am as happy in the lowlands, in the woods, by the sea as I am navigating my way across highlands and moorland. I am a reasonable navigator and I enjoy exploring off the beaten track. If any of this sounds appealing and you are willing to join me being out there in the wild enjoying the splendour of our countryside. I have my own transport and can walk occasionally mid week or at the weekend to suit.

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 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.

Box No: 102098

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, city breaks and the theatre. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris

My Message: Hi,
I'm Catherine, 42 from Preston. I have done quite a lot of walking, mainly in the Lakes and North Wales but other areas too.I would like to do more in Scotland. I have also done some treks abroad. I have previously walked a lot with my parents but they are getting past the long and high stuff now. Also I met a great walking partner on here about 10 years ago but she has moved abroad for work! I'm now struggling to get out walking as I don't want to go by myself. I love anything outdoors, pretty much any weather. I love camping and a good pint after a walk. I'm looking for people in 30's/40's who would like to go on day walks to begin with to see how we get on. Anyway, drop me a line if you'd like to make contact and get out walking. Thanks

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 - 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 hoped to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020 but didn't!!. In June 2021 I'll be taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge for Alzheimer's Society.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 2021!! Andy

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.

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 prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. Sorry, but I really do not like walking with Dogs. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. 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 50s, based near Liverpool hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my name is Lee and I live Liverpool.
I have decided to update this message as I have walked quite a few routes now thanks to a very good mate Tom who I met through the site. For me as much as I love walking but I also love admiring the view, maybe sneak in a little bit of rest while having a rest.
I do have friends but they are really not interested in the idea of walking, not sure why.

The downside is I dont drive so would need to be able to get to the walks via public transport. So if I can get there via a train it's ideal.

If you are interested in helping me out, I am more than happy to pay my way :-)

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

My Message: I live in Cambridgeshire and have a deep love for walking and hiking. The last long distance l did was Glen Affic in Scotland. However, l like short walks as much as long hikes and to enjoy my walk, stopping to take in the scenery and enjoying a good chat or just appreciating the silence together.
My schedule is quite free so l can do a mixture of week days and weekends. I also drive, so travelling is no problem.
By nature l am a bubbly, outgoing person with an introvert side. Looking to make some new female walking buddies. I look forward to hearing from you.

  • 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;
  • 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 late 40s, based near Doncaster hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I love the outdoors and recently bought all the kit and caboodle to go wild camping but fear crept in and decided not to go alone just yet.. I'll give most things a go and love trying new things. I'd love to find someone to hike and maybe wild camp. I'd not say no to exploring more urban locations too. We've lost so much time this last year, we have lots to catch up with!

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Colin, living near Yarm in Teesside. I have always loved walking and the outdoors and am lucky to have so many national parks close and in easy reach.
Now retired, I'm able to pop out to the NY Moors daytime/evenings, weekdays and weekends.
I enjoy extending my walks to the Dales, Lakes and Northumberland, staying in country pubs/hotels.
I've always found walking very therapeutic and need someone to share the outdoors with. Ideally I'd love a like-minded female companion.
I enjoy lively conversation, a good laugh and a nice meal with a glass of wine. I don't smoke, keep myself in decent shape and even go jogging. I love pets and miss my parson russell. Friends call me easy going and good company.
Would be delighted to hear from you.
Bye for now
Colin

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 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;

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

My Message: Just rediscovering my love of walking.
As a single man with a campervan (that doesn't sound in the slightest bit dodgy does it) I love the tranquility of being out in the countryside or on the coast with my muppet dog but I'm getting bored with my own company and would like to find local people to enjoy the outdoors with.
As lockdown comes to an end im looking forward to getting back out hopefully in the sunshine but think I am going to have to work on my fitness.

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!

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

My Message: Hi, I live in the Staffordshire area and would like to meet male and female walking partners to walk locally and explore more of the UK. I walk my dogs each evening after work and like to try new routes over the weekend. I enjoy walking in the Peak District over the weekends as that is doable in a day. I am keen to learn new walking routes and I am open to suggestions. I am reasonably fit and can do a bit of scrambling but am not a climber. My map and navigation skills are not good, so would welcome someone with these skills so we don't get hopelessly lost (currently relying on google maps). I am easy going and enjoy cafe's and country pubs as part of the walk. I also enjoy theatre, comedy, eating out and riding pillion.

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

My Message: Hello,
Walking is my biggest hobby. I love walking around lovely places - for a few hours, a few days, a few weeks - enjoying views and just being. There are so many beautiful places we can see and enjoy!

I've been living in the UK for more then five years. Although I had traveled a lot before, I unexpectedly fell in love with this country and I've been staying and living here.
I have walked a few long distance trails in the UK on my own and in one go (e.g. The South Downs Walk, The Hadrian's Wall Path, The South West Coast Path, The Wales Coast Path,...) and I walk a lot on Dartmoor (which I love).
I would love to say that I am an experience walker and on a number of counts I am, however when it comes to navigation skills I am almost useless (although I believe not hopeless...).
I like discovering places off the beaten track and off-grid which can be a bit tricky sometimes when you are not good with navigation.
I love walking in the open countryside and by the sea, although I should say that I love walking wherever.
This summer (2021) I am going to walk The Cambrian Way and - considering my navigation skills - I'd like to find a friend to walk with me some more difficult parts.
I am a friendly, easy going, open minded and always in a good mood, positive thinking woman and I have a good sense of humour.
I love exploring and experiencing what I see around. If I have an opportunity to connect a walk to visiting historical places I am happy doing it. History is my hobby and I am also interested in photography, art, music, cooking,... Lena

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

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

My Message: Retired early to see the world just as it went into lockdown. Want to get out now and see more of our countryside and other countries.
No health problems but very unfit now after too much sitting in over the winter.
Used to 12 miles local walks. Have done half the Ridgeway wild camping until lockdown ended my attempt. Would like to do either Dales way or White Peak way in the early summer, camping or hosteling or a mixture. Also maybe the Suffolk Coast, Icknield way and open to ideas.
Enjoy a beer or two but not as many as I used to.
Do not like large groups and fairly quiet at first but once I'm comfortable I open up.
Happily married but can't explore the places I want to with the Mrs and her five dogs!
