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 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 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, windsurfing, city breaks and the theatre to mention a few but always happy to try something new. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

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

My Message: Not ready for old age yet! I miss male company. Sadly my male friends are unwell, not able to go walking.Which is why I'd like to walk with a male friend who, like me, is interested in the state of the world, is curious, can see the funny side of life, who is respectful and considerate of self and others. Who is comfortable with meaningful conversation and silence...and anything in between.
In the past I've walked in Norway and Andalusia....locally in the forest, on beaches, South Downs.

I'm not solely into getting to a destination, love stops to take in my surroundings, maybe with a coffee or small snack?
I'd like to explore Wild places in Uk or elsewhere...maybe camping, wild swimming. Don't rule out a city walk. Locally or further afield. I would like to be guided by someone else's ideas or experiences.
I know about myself that I can get overenthusiastic and overdo it..
so would like to communicate clearly about where we are going and what it entails.
Over the last few years have not done much walking so am building strength and stamina which i Really want to do! Plus very important at my time of life!!!!
I work three days a week with long holidays and a lot of flexibility.
My hobbies are people, the Arts, live music, reading, films (series during lock down!)international, community, nature, acting to save our planet from the mess we've made!

Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. I like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. To be honest, my map reading & navigation skills are a bit averagely average. I can drive and have a car.

Life is about living with Passion and taking a few risks, sharing with friends & companions who value being at one with the ridge tops as the sun dances into another day with the moon overhead reflecting soulful smiles from below.

My Message: I have quite an active job, so my fitness level is good, I enjoy coastal and country walks, nice to sometimes have a purpose such as a decent walk to a lovey country pub and back making a nice day of it.

It's always nice to be able to have a nice chat along the way, maybe even a picnic lunch I'm always happy to carry the picnic backpack.

I mainly walk the Thames Path and the Chilterns these days, with a bit of the South West Coast Path thrown in when I'm in the area.

Box No: 218375

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

My Message: Hi I am a 65 year old fit and active male retired and separated, but with a love of the great outdoors.
I am a Capricorn, and hopefully kind, polite and honest, and never drink more than one pint of beer or one glass of wine.
I have done a lot of walking and backpacking in the past, but always alone.
I have spent a lot of time on Dartmoor and once lived close to Bodmin Moor, so spent even more time there.
I now live in Cornwall and very close to a beach which I love and visit every day.
I have walked all the SW Coast Path, and the Cornwall part in both directions. Have completed the Two Moors Way and the Isle of Wight coast path. Most of this was a few years ago but now I am retired I am getting back into it again. I used to cover 20-30 miles a day, but now 10 miles is more realistic.
I am now getting back into backpacking/wild camping and starting on repeating the SWCP in 10 mile sections and exploring Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor all over again. This time hopefully with a like minded partner to share and enjoy it all with.
I also like day walks to beauty spots and interesting places, but not on my own.
I do have a well behaved friendly Border Collie who loves long walks, but she doesn't chat too much.
I need a new partner to be with now, to enjoy life with, and to enjoy all these walks with.
I have met a few people to walk with for a day in walking groups, but no one who is looking for a lifelong relationship.
I need the inspiration and company of a partner so we can be happy wanderers together and share those special moments together.
All I can offer is a life filled with travel, and adventure, hoping that is enough for a fit and active like-minded woman aged 56-69 who also has a love of the great outdoors.
Open to new ideas for even longer walks, plans and adventures.
Would love to share the art of lightweight backpacking and the enjoyment of wild camping with a new partner.
Would be willing to meet for a short walk and a long chat in a cosy pub over a drink or a meal.
Lets have a laugh at the world.
Laurence

Fine with me, I've got waterproofs. 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 a car.

I am a Walk Leader for my Local Ramblers Group(s).

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;
  • Walking With A Partner

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

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

My Message: I'm looking for walking companions of any age or gender. At present I prefer walks of 5-10 miles per day. I'm moderately fit and like to walk at a leisurely pace, with occasional stops. I like a lunch stop at a pub, but this isn't essential. I'd like to do more walking on the South Downs Way & the South West Coast Path, either day walks or walking holidays. I've done a lot of walking in Sussex & around the London area, mostly day walks. Have been on walking holidays in Devon, Wales & the Lake District.

I'm not working currently & can do most days except some Saturdays. I usually travel from Brighton by train & don't have a car at present. My other interests are spirituality, personal development, cinema & gardening on my balcony. My personality is sometimes playful & outgoing, & sometimes quiet & thoughtful. Sometimes I like to have a break in conversation & walk together in silence to take in the views. I enjoy taking photos during my walks.

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

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. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive. I do not have my own vehicle but can borrow or rent one.

I am also interested in:

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

My Message: I walk both for fitness and pleasure and I am particularly interested in meeting someone who would like to travel and walk. Not simply to clock up loads of miles (I mostly keep under 10) but for sightseeing and to enjoy local communities, live music and a few drinks. Someone who camps would be great, as I would like to get away for short breaks in the summer. I also want to do more walking abroad; excluding anything very extreme! Not keen on cold nor spiders! As a person I am quite practical, independent, thoughtful but not intellectual, a bit daft at times, relatively non judgmental, not keen on snobbery and do not follow a religion or a sport. Walking, theatre, art and listening to a variety of music are my main interests.

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.
