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 most weathers but do not like snow and ice. 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 don't drive.

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;
  • 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 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.

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

My Message: Hi I am looking to return to walking after lockdown. I'm more of an ambler than a rambler these days but can happily walk all day. 2019 I walked most of The Thames Path only having 23 miles left to go at time of writing. I like to take photographs and take in a view so for me its more about the journey than sprinting to the destination. I am very easy going and laid back and like to treat people how I like to be treated which is with courtesy, kindness, dignity and respect. I have a sense of humour, love to laugh and enjoy a good conversation whilst walking. Id like to meet some for walks 6 to 12 miles in duration in the Home Counties and East Anglia to begin with to get fit again and get back to walking longer distances.

I am also interested in:

My Message: Hi, I love the outdoors and recently bought all the kit and caboodle to go wild camping but fear crept in and decided not to go alone just yet.. I'll give most things a go and love trying new things. I'd love to find someone to hike and maybe wild camp. I'd not say no to exploring more urban locations too.

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.

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 :-).

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

My Message: Hiya,
Looking forward to meeting fellow walkers for some every day fresh air and company. I am a bubbly chatty out going kind of person who enjoys being outdoors, walking and meeting new people.
I am looking to hopefully walk quite local but am also willing to travel as long as not too. I do not mind travelling around an hour tops for a day walk. I enjoy time away for walking if further afield.
I am only looking for company as I have a partner of 35 years plus but he is not keen or want to do any longer walks
Unfortunately I am unable to map read but I have a fairly good sense of direction and I do know a lot of walks in different places (can't promise I wont get anyone lost though)
Hope to meet like minded people who also would like to walk be it in a small group or just as a companion. Ideally I would like a walking buddy who can meet up every week for at least one good walk or more. I know life can be hectic but we all have to make time for ourselves at some point

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 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 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.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:
North West Scotland; North East Scotland; Southern Scotland; North West England; Yorkshire; The English Midlands; Wales; East Anglia; The Heart of England; South East England; South West 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. 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:

  • 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;
  • 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 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

I am a Male Walker, in my early 70s, based near Kent hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Spurred on by doing more challenging walks ahead of doing the Three Peaks Challenge 6 years ago I have continued to enjoy walks as often as I can. I am active and fully fit enjoying a variety of activities. I enjoy varied walks from relaxed countryside walks to something more challenging. Part of enjoying walks for me is good company. I am happy to enjoy a drink or meal afterwards and would like to plan multi day trips to enjoy something more interesting. Prefer mid-week although I could do weekend walks. I have indicated walking areas and counties but are not limited to those indicated. If my post interests you do get in touch

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

My Message: Retired early to see the world just as it went into lockdown. Want to get out now and see more of our countryside and other countries.
No health problems but very unfit now after too much sitting in over the winter.
Used to 12 miles local walks. Have done half the Ridgeway wild camping until lockdown ended my attempt. Would like to do either Dales way or White Peak way in the early summer, camping or hosteling or a mixture. Also maybe the Suffolk Coast, Icknield way and open to ideas.
Enjoy a beer or two but not as many as I used to.
Do not like large groups and fairly quiet at first but once I'm comfortable I open up.
Happily married but can't explore the places I want to with the Mrs and her five dogs!

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 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 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!
