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. 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:

  • 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 Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Bury St Edmunds hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello, I am an outdoors type and never happier than when walking in the countryside or by the sea. I love everything about the great outdoors and, having a curious nature, I take a keen interest in the world around me. To me, it is not just about the walking but about enjoying nature and the countryside too,occasionally stopping to birdwatch and just enjoying the view.
I work part time (never weekends)but manage to walk locally 4 or 5 days of the week. I usually walk on my own but I know that it would be much more fun to walk with a companion. I prefer male company & ideally someone who enjoys a good conversation and can laugh easily. I have been known to get lost in Sainsburys car park so it would be good to meet up with someone who could help me with my navigational skills! I am reasonably fit for my age. In my head I am still 30 but sometimes my body tells me otherwise! However last year I completed the Mighty Hike challenge across the Peak District for Macmillan with no major ill effects so I'm not ready for my armchair and knitting just yet! I have also completed a number of treks abroad (Peru, Africa, Italy, Portugal) but would like to try some of UK long distance paths... C to C, West Highland Way, Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. I have walked the Cleveland Way & Norfolk Coastal Path in the past but would happily walk them again! Please don't think that I just enjoy Long Distance walking because I am just as happy with shorter less challenging walks. In fact a relaxed walk, with good company and a pub to look forward to is my idea of heaven.
If this appeals to you too, please get in touch & if you happen to live in East Anglia that would be a welcome bonus. Happy walking!

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for new friends to explore the UK with, as I've exhausted(literally !!) my current friends, many of whom prefer short walks. During this corona lockdown I've averaged 30 miles a week - better than baking any day. My job is cabin crew, often I have 3 days off during the week with the occasional weekend. I especially love coastal walks, but am good with any terrain, just happy to be walking. I'd like to do more multi day hikes, no problem camping or staying in BnBs. I've carried a big back pack but also had it transported. I've hiked the Anna Purna Circuit and part of he Camino de Santiago, always looking for new adventures.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm a keen walker living in the South West, whilst I am comfortable walking alone, it get's boring and would love to have someone to share the experience with. Mainly I walk in the South West area, but love the mountains when I can get away. I also regularly go on Trekking holidays abroad and have done three treks in Nepal over the last 5 years (Everest Base Camp, Annapurna, and Kanchenjunga base camp). However, I am more than happy with a gentle stroll across Dartmoor as well. I am recently retired and looking forward to ticking off some 'bucketlist' walks. England Coast to Coast, South West Coast Path to name a couple in the UK, but also would love to do the Camino De Santiago. When not out walking I am a keen theatre goer and also an amateur actor. Also have a love of music.
I'm flexible when and where I can walk and have a bit of an adventurous streak so am generally up for a bit of a challenge. What I'm missing is having people to share walking with. I know there are people out there, just haven't found them yet!

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 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 South of 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. I'm vegan ( you don't have to be) and a reasonable cook though do enjoy dining out too. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

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

My Message: I am a Female Walker, 50, based near Chester, but working near London. My walking friend and partner has passed away and I am hoping to meet either Male and Female new friend (s) to go walking with. When weather is bad on the hills, the alternative coastal walks combined with occasional bird watching (Norfolk, North Devon, Pembrokshire,…) is also an option.
I'm looking for walks about 6 to 9 hours per day, all year round. I've climbed Mont Blanc and Matterhorn in the past, so happy with any terrain. I am now too old and wise to still enjoy walking in fog and howling winds though. I like remote mountain walks and moorland walks and don't enjoy walking with crowds.
I can read maps but not enough practice for finding my way out with GPS or compass/map in fog.
I can drive but as I work in the south of England, I've been lucky that so far to have a friend who could pick me up from a train station near the walks location (Chester, Penrith, Kendal, York,…) and drive me to the walks and hotels.
I would not be walking with someone with a dog, or a party of more than 3, as it scares the wild-life which is a collateral interest of the walks. Age not a problem, I have a variety of interests and most importantly I am a good listener & interested in other peoples' interests as I enjoy learning.I am easy to get on with and certainly not into 'competetive' walking. I just love to get out and enjoy the view.
I don't expect or want to walk at the same pace as my companion, as I enjoy the solitary aspect of the walks, but to keep in the visual range but have stops and breaks together.

I stay in hotels, pub and B&B to enjoy the rest after the walk. I'd love to have again a companion again with whom I can a general culture conversation.
I'm working, so can rarely do more than Friday lunch time until Sunday evening. I need at least 3 week notice to book the week end and I'm happy to decide in the last days where to go depending on the weather.

Important: For the avoidance 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 Cheshire hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Cheshire based male, 63, quite experienced and passionate about the great outdoors.

Looking for an enthusiastic walking friend, male or female to join me on great days out in the Lake District, North Yorkshire or further a field.

Looking to get fitter and back into things this Summer.

Can pick up anyone in the North West whilst on route. So if you are interested in sharing a walk this year please contact me.

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

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

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. 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:

  • 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;

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 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 live in Norfolk (although a major change in my life is making me consider moving away, maybe you could convince me?) 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 am a senior member of the Army Cadet Force and, as such, have a good knowledge of navigation and am willing to teach anyone who wants to learn. I like to get away as much as I can.
Care to join me sometime? (Obviously when the 'rona has gone!!).

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

North East England; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of 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. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

I am a Qualified Lowland Leader (LL) - Mountain Training Association. I am a Qualified Hill and Moorland Leader (formerly Walking Group Leader (WGL)) - Mountain Training Association.

I am also interested in:

  • 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;
  • Rock Climbing

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

My Message: Hello,
I am interested in meeting male or female friends to go walking with, especially now the warmer weather is approaching (provided that this lockdown eventually ends). I am based in Lancashire however I can drive and have a car so I am willing to go further afield. I am a bit out of practise with walking very long distances as my friends are not the hiking-types so I've struggled to find people to go with me in the past. However, I would really like to challenge myself and I hope to meet like minded people. I have a springer spaniel who would be joining me.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Wa11 hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello to everyone, I've been a hill and mountain walker for many years now. In my early 60s, I am inclined to sit on a comfortable rock and watch the world go by. During a walk on a nice day. I backed packed round the world with a friend just a few years ago and would like to do it again in the not to distant future.

I would like to meet females for new adventures. I'm happy to do any grade of walk. From half a day on the flat to a couple of days backpacking in the hills. Camping B+Bs Pubs or Hotels, i don't mind. I can do weekdays and weekends. Tried the photo, says it was OK but it does not seem to have appeared!

Many thanks, hope to hear from you.

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

My Message: I love living and working in the Peak District and have walked a fair
Few routes over the years. I have the most appalling sense of direction but I am
happy to follow someone who can actually read an OS map. I love walking and also swimming but exercise has taken a back seat for a while for all sorts of reasons. I also love having a good matter and a laugh. I am available most weekends and I could make Wednesday afternoons if it fits in with other walkers. I have travelled reasonably extensively and in my younger days climbed in various parts of the world. I would like 2020 to be the start of a new chapter in my life and would really enjoy some company and direction on walks!!! Looking forward to hearing from you soon
