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!

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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. 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;
  • 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 60s, based near North London hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, my name is Julia. I am widowed, live in North London and am a keen walker for distances of about 5-10 miles, and am reasonably fit. Over the past 5 years I have walked mainly in the Chilterns, but very happy to explore other areas in the SE and London area. Had a lovely walking holiday in Slovenia a couple of years ago. In the past I have done many walks in N Wales, Lake District, Scotland, French Alps.

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

My Message: Does there happen to be anyone within easy striking distance of Havering or Hainult Country Park?

In 2019 I moved from Cheshire to a Romford postcode. Fortunately there are a number of country parks within easy reach of my new home and I've been getting to know them with my small dog as a companion. But it would be lovely to get out and about with a human companion.

In what seems to be the increasingly the distant past I have enjoyed walks in the mountains of Snowdonia Scotland and the Alps.
Slightly more recently there was a stand-out walk down the Grand Canyon, 'Bright Angels Trail' and more recently still walks in the Peak and Lake districts.

I don't like large groups but a small one is fine.I once belonged to an orienteering club where I learned not to trust my navigation, more miss than hit! It is important to me to get outdoors, I was volunteering with the local nature conservancy but that stopped early in 2020 due to covid 19.

I haven't been on a mountain walk since 2016 when I camped at Ravenglass in the Lake District. In 2019 I went to the Lleyn peninsula and walked along the coast ( can't get lost). In the last two years, largely because of the upheaval of moving, walking has meant dog walking and I probably haven't been out for longer than 2 - 3 hours. My current hope is to meet someone local to here for regular walks and then to explore further afield.

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!

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

My Message: Hello. Having played sport for many years I now enjoy walking regularly and love exploring the countryside, coastal areas and beautiful scenery. I particularly like seeking new adventures and going to places I haven't seen before.
I have a good sense of humour (I think we need it at the moment!), am not put off by inclement weather and will try most things! I also enjoy historical places of interest, art galleries, watching sport and sometimes grabbing a coffee or a beer on the way!
I am comfortable in my own company but would love to share some adventures with someone likeminded and kind.
I am from Kent but have my own car and will travel to most places to have a nice day's walking and:or days out. I currently walk around the Kent coast and countryside, but often (when not in lockdown!) will travel anywhere right across the south of England and further afield.

I'd be happy to meet up with men or women for a day's walk, anytime soon. At least it's something we can still do at this time. (However, I'd be keen to meet a man who shares my love of walking)
I've walked the whole of the SWCP, circuit of the Isle of Wight, the South Downs Way and the Cotswold Way. I love walking in the Lake District and would love to do the Coast to Coast. Am also trying to the Wessex Ridgeway in single day trips from home. But I also love a blow on the Marlborough Downs or just an amble along the canal. Tea or a pub meal at the end is a bonus.
I'm retired and don't have any regular commitments except Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings at the moment. I play tennis but don't want to appear super fit, just normal for a walker in her early 60's! Am happy to travel to meet up with someone and hope it might be you.

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

My Preferred Walk Areas:

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;
  • Skiing and/or Snowboarding

By putting my profile on here I am hoping to meet someone special.

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: 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.

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 60s, based near Southampton hoping to meet just Male new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi, I'm Sally, single, retired, with time and energy to walk. Keen to meet a single, fit, friendly guy to help map read, who likes to stop and admire the views. I've trekked the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca, part of the SWCP in Cornwall, Isle of Skye and The North Atlas Mountains, Morocco. Closer to home - The New Forest,The Monach's Way, South Downs, Clarendon Way (25 miles in one hit) Usually 10 miles a day is fine by me! Join local walking groups but prefer to walk with a friend.
Free to walk anywhere here or abroad in an area with some interest or beauty, with a pub or cafe at the end. Pretty adventurous, don't do bleak or freezing tho'! Would like to be introduced to some new areas. Interested in completing SWCP in doable chunks.
Other interests include: cycling, kayaking, sailing, coastal walks are great, love being by the sea, music, live gigs, anything arty, local exhibitions or performances on route.

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.. great website! 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 hope to complete Hadrian's Wall Path 2020. 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 2020!! Andy

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

My Message: Hi, John here, I am a really keen walker and looking for a female walking companion to join me for walks of varying distances in the countryside around London and the South East generally including coastal walks and perhaps a trip further afield. It would be good to have a walking day our with a pub lunch and even tea to finish, I am retired and can walk mid-week as well as weekends to suit your own commitments. I do not drive but love travelling by train for walks outside London and the coast. If you are interested in walking with me at any time to suit then I would love to hear from you because on a nice day I just love to grab one of my books with walk routes and head off. I'm a volunteer lock keeper and work one day a week which I love doing. I love London's history and give guided walks and currently writing a book to include my ten favourite walks. Hope to hear from you soon!

I enjoy longer hikes and love to wild camp. I'm looking to do the 3 peaks at some point but also very open to any other idea's.

Thanks for reading my add.
Happy hiking

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

My Message: I love walking, everything about it. What could be better than sitting down with a glass of wine and planning a walk.
Then there's the excitement of arriving at your walks starting point (usually a pub car park if it's a circular walk)
The anticipation as you lace up your boots and the adrenaline rush as you set off on your way. The endorphins kick in, you get warm, remove a layer ( i can never work out exactly the right clothes to walk in )
The scenery is beautiful, you catch a glimpse of a deer, a buzzard, a moth or a cowslip.
I often get lost ( Its not getting lost, its going on an adventure) i usually get muddy and sometimes i fall over.
Then there's the relief as your sore feet sense the end of the walk. A nice pint and a pack of crisps or nuts, maybe a meal by a fire.
These are all wonderful things, but so much more when shared with a like minded friend.

My Message: Hi, my name is Bette. I have always loved walking but abandoned it somewhat when I started playing golf.

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.
