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

My Message: Hey, I'm very much a novice walker but thoroughly enjoy it! My current fitness levels allow me to stroll for about 5 miles although I'm hoping that I can improve this with lots of walks with a great companion:) I do have muscular dystrophy which means I may find it quite painful at times but having somebody next to me would distract me. I have a great sense of humour and I love bird watching so I'll be dragging my binoculars with me. I work during the week but free at weekends and also depending on how close we are, would love to walk early in the morning or late evenings on weekdays. I have my own car so willing to travel. Also partial to pub grub when the pubs are open! Don't be shy and say hi!

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

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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 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 early 60s, based near Widnes hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello I have been walking mostly in the north west and Wales.
I enjoy being up and out early especially on a Sunday morning and in pretty much any weather conditions.
Before lockdown I completed the 1st section of the trans pennine trail from southport to hadfield in 4 days, I'm hoping to complete the hadfield to hornsea section when things return to some normality. In the meantime I am doing regular 15 to 20 mile walks around my own area mostly on off road pathways so I'm looking to get to know anyone who would be interested in joining me.

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:

  • 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 20s, based near Salisbury hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Would love to find more friends with mutual interests. Any size, shape, colour, background, just hopefully good company and a lover of a good view :)
Friendship and fun but nothing serious.

Happy to do shorter local walks or all day trips further afield. I can comfortably walk 10-13 miles in a day along coast paths or forests but would gladly walk further with willing company! Can drive but to be honest I will avoid it when I can. Beyond useless with or without a map!

My favourite places so far are the Jurassic Coast, Pembrokeshire Coast, Savernake Forest, and Waterfall Country. Hoping for the opportunity to make it up a mountain this year!
Also enjoy casual cycling and swimming, and baking.

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.

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..

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.

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.

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!

My Message: Hi - my name is Debbie and I would love to hear from a guy who wants to get out there walking and breathing in some beautiful places again (when restrictions have finally lifted!) If you fancy sharing your enthusiasm and walking/trail experience on some great journeys with me I'd be made up.
Most walking lengths are good with me as I want to build up my stamina again and can't wait to get discovering the undiscovered! Did Kinder Scout a good while ago but there's so much more out there to see. Love scenic hills and trails, rocky or flat paths as long as it's out in the open and feels like an adventure!
If you feel like minded and have a great sense of humour and want some good company then let's make a plan. The local area is good here but have always got the Peaks, Lakes and Dales in mind.
Love good food and a beer or just a coffee and a sandwich en route.
Love using my mountain bike too when I feel like a change. Get in touch if any of this sounds like fun.
I work two wknds a month, get Mondays and a regular Friday off and can arrange to swap weekdays off to suit

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 Elaine. I live in Liverpool and enjoy mountain walking in The Lakes, Snowdonia and Scotland. I've done some European mountain walking including the Mont Blanc trek which was more challenging than I thought it was going to be. I have enjoyed years of solo mountain walking but in recent years I have started walking in groups which has been fun and tends to make walking more memorable.I'm fit, happy and healthy and pretty easy going with other easy going people.I love walking with experienced walkers who either have excellent knowledge of an area or good map reading navigational skills..I'm currently working from home and tend to go walking at weekends to the Lakes, Snowdonia, yorkshire. Managed 4 days in the Lakes before we were all put into lockdown..discovered a fabulous low level circular route around Great Langdale and Little Langdale.
I'm looking to meet and walk with experienced mountain walkers, people or a person who is/are fun, easy going, with a bit of a sense of adventure. I'm single and it would be amazing to meet Mr right for me but if that doesn't happen I will gladly settle and be thankful for making new walking friends.

I don't mind where I walk and would like to be introduced to some new places to explore.
I am fairly fit and used to run Marathons, but my knees won't take that level of punishment anymore but I can walk all day long.

  • 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;

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands;

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'm happy to walk in all weathers - sunshine, snow, hail, wind & rain - bring it on. I like walking with dogs and will bring 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 also interested in:

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

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 60s, based near Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am looking for walking friends to do weekday or weekend walks of 10-20 miles with in West Yorkshire or an hour or two's drive away - the Lakes or Peak District are areas i want to get to know better but they are probably weekend trips for me. I enjoy walking in easily accessible or remoter areas.

Currently i try to get out 2-3 times a week. After a year or two though i am getting a bit bored with my own company! Last year I did the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, and Pennine Way during lockdown and post lockdown,

I am a semi retired education consultant. Pretty fit, with ok map/compass skills and very much looking forward to hearing from you.

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

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 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 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:

  • 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;
  • Mountain Biking

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 West Yorkshire hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I have always had a deep feeling of spiritual fulfilment after, and for example, a walk in The Lake District, or a walk along a beautiful beach somewhere. Years ago I lived and worked in the Lakes but have somehow lost my contact with that place. Subsequent domiciles have included The Hebrides, Dartmoor, Snowdonia, North Downs, and now West Yorkshire.
Guess I'm not a gear freak or a competitive walker, my main aspiration is oneness with nature.
My preferences are walking just by myself or equally with just one other person.
Reasonable travel is okay but I would have a priority on walks available close to me ( appropriate at this time of restrictions, but maybe when it's all sorted, a wonderful celebratory party walk??).
Reasonably fit and healthy and an ideal sort of walk for me would be in the range of 5 - 12 miles.
Can be a good conversationalist and a mindful/soulful quiet walking buddy.
Friday - Sunday are my available days.

My Message: Hi looking for some company on walks, I don't mind walking anywhere I have a car and can travel.
