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

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'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;
  • 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 early 70s, based near London Ontario Canada hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello fellow walkers. I am a 70+ year old Canadian female who visits the UK yearly. I hope to visit fall 2021 and am open to finding walking companions in the Lake District, Yorkshire, central and southwest England. I am not up for steep elevations but more leisurely climbs are OK. About Me: When not out and about I knit, cook, read, putter in my garden, lunch with friends, visit art galleries/museums and travel. I hope to meet for good exercise, conversation and social times as I love to end my walks at a pub or cafe. Get in touch if you have an interest in joining me.

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'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 but do not have access to a vehicle.

Important: For the avoidence of doubt I am definitely not looking for anything other than someone to go walking with.

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. If you fancy sharing your enthusiasm and walking/trail experience on some great journeys with me I'd be made up and can't wait to discover the undiscovered! Did Kinder Scout a good while ago but there's so much more out there to see. Love scenic hills, flats and trails, 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.
Love good food and a beer or just a coffee.

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.

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.

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

My Message: Hello

I live in Surrey and looking to meet walking companions to walk locally in the Surrey Hills, Dorking area. I am however prepared to travel to new areas/locations.

Over the last few years, I have been undertaking a self-build project, my own “Grand Designs”. Immensely demanding and rewarding in equal measure but it has meant compounded by the pandemic I have neglected a good walk.

I am definitely not an experienced walker but keen to get out there and to share a walk long or short, but not too short and all the better if it includes a tea shop or pub. I can be available for walks during the week and weekends and at short notice.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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

My Message: Hello!

Currently I'm on a mission to bag all of the Wainwrights. Did a lot of hiking in Europe and participating in races like the Harz Mountains 100km race when I was younger, and a lot fitter! I suppose I'm trying to make up for lost time as there was a time when walking to the pub was a challenge. No longer drink (but will have a 0% beer at the end of a long walk!), Vegan for 10 years. Mainly been doing low level walks in the peak district over the last few years along with Mam Tor, Edale, Kinder Scout etc but now concentrating on Wainwrights. I'm quite happy walking on my own most of the time but it would be good to walk in a group, or with other hikers who had a similar outlook on life. My ultimate aim is to be fitter at 60 than I was at 30!! So if you fancy joining me say hello :)

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!

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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. If pushed, I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are rather poor at best. I can drive. I do not have my own vehicle but can borrow or rent one.

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 mid 60s, based near Thirsk hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi I'm looking to meet new friends to walk in the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorks Moors. I regularly visit family in West Cumbria, so I'm also seeking walkers in the Lakes. I would like to walk The Dales Way, some of the SW Coast Path, Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Scottish Islands, Lycian Way and other walking abroad, but not all in the same year! I enjoy varied walks from a simple river stroll to a summit walk in the Lakes.

I'm reasonably fit and virtually retired. I feel comfortable map reading, but less so in mountainous country. I equally enjoy a beer or cuppa after a walk.

I also enjoy landscape photography, art, cooking and travel.

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

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'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;

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 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 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. Sadly, my map reading & navigation skills are pretty hopeless. I can drive and have a car.

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

My Message: Hoping to meet gentleman 50-65 for company on walks, runs and bike rides 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 and the Wales Coast Path in the next couple of years.

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 late 50s, based near Basingstoke hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: So glad that it's not long before we can start to plan new walks and won't be restricted to local walks.

I now work part time so have plenty of time to go walking locally and nationally. I am friendly and reliable and like to chat on a walk.

I am looking for people who love walking and are looking for someone to join them. I would like to meet someone who is also interested in walking some of our long distance paths. Sometimes we need a bit of motivation and encouragement and it is always better to have some company and support. Distance and speed are not that important. I equally enjoy local half day walks in the south of England to all day challenges in the mountains. But, it's always nice to end up in a country pub at the end of the day.

I am a reasonable map reader and whilst generally cautious by nature, I am fairly confident in the mountains. I have a car so can travel as necessary. I like to chat about about most things and it would be a bonus if you had a good sense of humour too. I'll try to respond to all responses.

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 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. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris
