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

My Message: The Peak is my nearest national park, I've done a fair bit around the area, but still like to explore locally or nationally with a male/female walker.
My favourite place to hike or wild camp is obv North Wales. But I'd liked to spend more time in the Lakes. If your from the Lakes or want to explore more of the Lakes, get in touch.
Interested in all manner of outdoor pursuits.
I'm happy to drive for a meet up to explore other areas.

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

My Message: Hi, I lived just outside the Lake District for over thirty years and walked the fells quite a lot there. I am now based in Lancaster, following retirement and would love to get to know Lancashire better. During lockdown (1) I bought an e bike and and have enjoyed exploring both the coast and the Forest and Trough of Bowland, my longest ride so far is about 75km.

As I am now retired I am free to walk in the week as well as at weekends. Most of the walking I have done is probably in the Lakes although I have friends with a base in Huddersfield and enjoy the Yorkshire moors. Recently returned from a family holiday in the Peak District I also discovered the wonderful landscape of north Staffs and Derbys where I enjoyed several good walks, taking in a couple of Peaks.

In 2019 I was lucky to be able to walk in the Andes whilst visiting family in Colombia, I have also walked in the Peruvian Andes when visiting Machu Picchu. In Europe I walked the Lycian Way in Turkey.

I do prefer walking in company, although not really a fan of large groups and am happy to walk with either male or female companions.
I consider myself reasonably fit but do see walking as a pleasurable activity, as opposed to a 'route march'.

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. 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;
  • 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 Male Walker, in my late 60s, based near Leyland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I'm recently widowed and retired and looking to make new friends and do some walking. I'm free throughout the week. I also wild swim so finding nice places for a dip away from the crowds would be great.

I'm 67 and the site lists me as 'late 60s' - I'd describe myself as 'mid 60s' :)

Happy to walk with a group or with a companion, initially day walks. Forest of Bowland, Lake District, Peak District, Yorkshire....

I run Parkruns (about 30 mins) and am getting my fitness back after Covid last January.

I recently climbed Coniston Old Man in low cloud at the peak. Am happy with this sort of conditions and go equipped but am appalled by those setting off in flimsy footwear and with no waterproofs..... if you cant see the top its going to be wet!
I love travelling and am soon setting off with my motorhome to the Outer Hebrides.

I have lived in India and Sri Lanka and have travelled widely in southern Europe. I have walked two of the Caminos de Santiago in northern Spain, Planning to travel round the Baltic soon.

Sorry no photo yet, will post one soon.

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

My Message: Hi, Lesley here,
Just completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge and the Ullswater Way 22 mile Challenge last month. I was camping at Nether Wasdale in May to walk the Mosedale Round with friends.

I've previously walked all the Lake District summits, extensively in Snowdonia and Scotland and in my own neck of the woods, The Forest of Bowland as well as abroad.

I love being outdoors and although I love sunshine I'll walk in any weather if the mood takes me. I particularly love coast and ridge walking but rivers and woodlands are beautiful too.
I'm interested in wildlife and nature, family and friends, art and architecture, yoga and music.
I like getting away for weekends and short breaks. I cycle too!

I took early retirement from advisory teaching 7 years ago to project manage a full property restoration which is now almost complete.

Therefore I have time to seriously explore the fells once again.
Love to hear from you.

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

My Message: Enjoy walking and off to Lakes for a few days on my own and found this site whilst searching for a couple of walks around Coniston and Ambleside. Have moved back to Cheshire recently and thought it might be interesting to find walking companions. Never thought about asking for walking companions.

Currently work in Liverpool during the week with a combination of working from home so tend to walk at night or weekends. Enjoy Cheshire walks and wider Walks in Wales, Lakes, etc and happy for 2-4 hour routes with a bit of variety but don't always want to drive to walk when I'm on my own. Generally expect to be available every other weekend.

Have kept active over lockdown and average around 20 miles a week but still have potential and ambition to lose a few pounds in walking more regularly. Don't really have a bucket list of walks but would be happy to join up and target specific walks or a series of walks.

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.
Ian

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.

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.

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

My Message: Hi, I love walking in the Lake District, have always loved the Lakes and mountains. In the last few years I've done some coast walking and really like that too. I have done Anglesey and parts of the South West Coast Path and I'd love to fill in the missing pieces. Having moved to the Midlands about 6 years ago, I'd love to discover what the area has to offer.
I am retired now so have more time and I also keep myself fit by playing tennis.

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

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 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;

I am not actively looking for anyone other than a new walking companion but if that right person came along . . .

My Message: Hi, I am looking to find companion to go for a walk. I work full time during the week so only have time to do walks on Saturdays/Sundays. I enjoyed walking in the Peak District and around Staffordshire Moorlands, but an easy stroll around villages or parks would be great too. Would like to walk again to Snowdonia and Lake District and open for possibilities to walk somewhere down south. I like taking photos every now and again with either my phone or my other cameras.

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

My Message: Hi, mid 30s female looking to find new walking buddies. I live on the coast in the lake district and have only recently started to appreciate what I have on my doorstep. My fitness level is pretty average but I am hoping to build on this.
The fells are a challenge for me but once you get to the top the views just make it all worth while don't you think.
Although I do drive and have my own car, I am a nervous driver so tend to walk locally but hey the roads out to these cumbrian fells are pretty awful so if I can manage that I'm sure I can go further afield right??!
My availability to get out walking varies week to week due to my 2 tiny humans.
Due to starting my walking ventures in lockdown, I haven't yet had the opportunity to reward myself with some nice pub grub and a drink at these lovely country pubs that are dotted around, so looking forward to doing that with some nice company after a good walk.

A bit more about me:

I can cope with a little bit of scrambling if it is short and there are no steep drops. 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:

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

My Message: Hi

I'm based in Liverpool (Waterloo/Crosby) and have recently started to do some easy walking to ease myself gently into doing this. With a view to either doing this slightly more often or being able to tackle something a little more ambitious (nothing major though, ultimately it has to be fun).

I have in the past been a member of a rambling group which did some fairly substantial walks around the country but that's a long time ago. I'm now trying to get out and about a bit more and I'm currently working on my walking fitness which is probably around 2-3 hours walking at a reasonable pace. So I would class myself in the grades 2,3,4 at least for the moment (no real expectation to progress much further than 4). My current walking has been local but I do love to travel and I'm handily placed for such as the Lake District. My fitness is reasonable because I try to maintain this for skiing once or twice a year.

I work full time (weekdays) and also volunteer at an animal rescue on Sunday mornings. So I may only be available some Saturdays, maybe Sundays after 2pm, and occasional weekday evenings. Hopefully my occasional availability doesn't put anyone off.

It would be nice to meet like-minded people who like to get out and about whilst enjoying other people's company.

Hope to hear from you.

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

My Message: Hi,

I live on the fringe of the Lake District and enjoy walking most weekends and occasional evenings, especially when the sun is out and it seems a travesty to remain indoors. I'm a third of the way through completing the Wainwrights, although enjoy low-level walking as much as the heights.

Most of my friends are more into sailing or shopping than walking so I'm looking for people who enjoy getting out into the spectacular Lakes.

I love to discover new places to eat and drink, and am passionate about wild swimming.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, 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, 61yrs 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 either a female or male or small group of friends/like minded people to go out for the day or weekend exploring the countryside, preferably at weekends and build up my stamina. 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.

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.
