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

My Message: Message: Hello, I'm Roy, a young at heart fell walker looking for an easy going walking companion for walks both at home and abroad. I love the countryside so I'm not really fussed about particular areas in this country. The ones I've selected are where I walk regularly but would like to explore a little further afield and don't mind travelling to a decent walk. Abroad, my favourite walking areas are within the Mediterranean Climate regions (prefer the more reliable weather!). Not into peak bagging or route marches. Much prefer to take in the scenery, wildlife, local history and a suitable hostelry en route! I also have a wide range of other interests which include cycling, hot air ballooning, live gigs, theatre and travel. I'm also pet friendly so don't mind a canine companion coming along. Look forward to hearing from you, Roy.

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

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 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 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:

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

My Message: Hi everyone I'm Chris and would like to meet some new friends to do some walks with me and my black Labrador, Jack :-) I'm fairly easy going, enjoy having a laugh and like nothing better than a nice country pub at the end. I would prefer people who are reasonably physically fit as I usually walk 8 miles plus. I don't mind walking with just one other person or in a group. If we go for a walk in a group I prefer groups of 4 or less as it's easier that way if you have a dog. Previously I've walked up mountains in Scotland, Yorkshire Dales and Lakes and I've just started checking off a few Wainwright's. But happy to go walking anywhere in North West really. I'm ok with map reading, it's fairly easy with right apps on your phone. I work during the week so would prefer weekends really but can give myself the odd day off in the week every now and then if needed. Did the West Highland Way a few years ago and would love to do a few more long distance trails sometime.

I like walking with dogs and will bring my own. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • 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;
  • Mountain Biking

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 an old campervan due to this crazy COVID world! Which will help to 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 also enjoy narrowboating with family and friends. I look forward to hearing from you...

I am a Male Walker, in my late 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

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

My Message: Hoping to meet male 50-65 for company on walks, bike rides, and maybe runs, initially in the Yorkshire Dale's where I have a caravan base. Have walked Yorkshire 3 peaks on my own in 2019 and take part in trail running events in the Lakes and Yorkshire. I don't really like large group walks, preferring relative solitude!I work full time, often from home, and flexibly, but would mainly be walking at weekends. Fitness is important to me, as is being out and about in the countryside. I like to challenge myself and would like to complete the Wainwright's, Dale's high way, and the Wales Coast Path in the next few years.

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

My Message: I would like someone to enjoy the outdoors with and have a laugh, just as a friend and to accompany me in the outdoors. It would be good to share my knowledge and experience of the outdoors. I prefer walking or canoeing, I have a Canadian 3 seater canoe. However, I'm up for almost anything. I camp whenever I can, I prefer the fresh air and waking up to beautiful scenery.
I prefer female company so I can relax and unwind, (I work in a male dominated environment which is competitive).
Whether you like long or short distance I'm more than happy to adapt the activities.

I've spent most of my life in the outdoors and need it for the health of body and mind. I've been out every day since the first lockdown, with the exception of having to isolate.
I love to walk the hills, canoe in the lakes and canals and absorb the surroundings. I love camping, hammock, tent and bivi on basic sites or wild camps.
I'm good at navigation, in the past have climbed and caved (SRT). I've walked in most areas of England, Scotland and Wales.I like to be able to view nature, identify, photograph and uses of plants. I love learning and I'm sure you can teach me too. I'm fit and healthy, aches are just you show you still have your limbs attached aren't they?
Until I had covid (beginning of August 21, I'd walked every day since the 1st lockdown. This provided a good fitness level.

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

My Message: I have very much embraced long distance walking here in the UK since the pandemic hit us.

When I have a spare weekend day, I tend to do a section of the North Downs or South Downs Way. I just completed the SDW.

I recently completed 100km section of the Jurassic Coast over 2 days for charity.

I have Epping Forest literally on my doorstep so if I can't fit a journey in, I can be found very local too.

I'm about to travel to the Lake District for the 3rd time in a year for a walking holiday. I will be solo camping in Great Langdale, walking by day and spending my evenings lapping up the atmosphere and beer/wine at The Old Dungeon Ghyll.

I would love to bag all of the Wainwrights (currently very low in my progress). I am walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast next summer. Walking the Camino is also on the bucket list.

Whilst I do enjoy solo adventures I'd love some company for more adventurous hikes and climbs in the Lake District to build confidence with the higher fells.

I work full-time from home in East London so my walking is on the weekends except when I take a walking holiday.

My Message: Hello, I'm David, single, 74 and retired (summer '12), I live in beautiful Fylde,having moved from my native Manchester, and would like to meet singles or a group to make walking more pleasurable. I'm not that experienced a walker so may have to be gradually more adventurous in my excursions, having said that my last job was very active so I need more than a gentle stroll to the pub. An active stroll to the pub, then, or a tea shop or whatever. My map reading skills are reasonable, I think, and I have a good sense of direction.

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

My Message: I like nothing more than a day walk, any time of year, whatever the weather. I prefer a more challenging walk but strolls are welcome too. 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 arĂȘte, 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 enjoy Snowdonia, Tryfan, Snowdon, The Glyders etc. I'm happy on flatter walks too - I was brought up in Lincolnshire! I like cycling too, I've a road and mountain bike. I have a car so travelling is no problem.

My Preferred Walk Grades*: 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8:9:

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West England; 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. 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:

  • Road Cycling
  • Mountain Biking

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 Manchester hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, my name's Frank and I'm just the wrong side of 60 - or the right side depending on your viewpoint.

Earlier this year I rediscovered walking and have fallen back in love with the great outdoors. After four months of weekly activity I'm healthier and fitter and ready to tackle adventures I could only have dreamt of a year ago.

From the outset I targeted the Wainwrights as something to aim for and for now I'm concentrating on completing this challenge in the Lakes. So far I've walked 95 of the peaks, driving from Manchester at the weekends as I'm still gainfully employed during the week. Most of my jaunts are 12 - 14 miles and encompass 5 - 8 peaks, though I did recently re-walk the Yorkshire three peaks.

Along the way I've met a lot of interesting people and after stumbling on this site I'm hoping to find walking companions with whom to share a pleasant day in the fresh air and some good company on my personal odyssey.

I can also get out on summer evenings round Manchester though I'd have to work round other interests such as dancing. If you think a steep ascent is hard a couple of Argentine tango lessons will redefine your sense of difficulty!

A bit more about me:

I love Scrambling & Edges - the more exposure the better. 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 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 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 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).
