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.

A bit more about me:

I quite enjoy Scrambling & Edges but don't like too much exposure. 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. Even if I say so myself, I consider my map reading & navigation skills to be excellent. I can drive and have a car.

Worked as a Leader approved by WML. Started ML but Job in Outdoors came to an end.

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 very happy to walk locally but also really wish to explore new areas. I have walked some sections of the South West Coast Path and West Wales Coast Path and would love to walk more.

I am not a hardened walker but enjoy walks from 5 to 12 miles and occasionally longer weekend/few days walking. To finish off occasionally with a pub meal is an attractive thought. I love the outdoors and really appreciate the countryside and scenery on route.

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 but 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 more 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.

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 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, city breaks and the theatre. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris

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

My Message: I love walking and want people to go walking and to socialise with. If we can get a good weather day and a view, all the better. I'd be happy to meet up with men or women for a day's walk, anytime soon. Also happy to join a group walk. At least it's something we can still do at this time.
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 Wednesday evenings at the moment. I play tennis but don't want to appear super fit, just normal for a walker in her 60's! Am happy to travel to meet up with someone and hope it might be you.

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

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

My Message: My name is Steve and I am in my mid 60's. I lost my wife very suddenly last year and that has left a very big hole in my life. We always walked together rather than in a group and now that the lockdown is starting to ease I would like to get out again but it is not much fun by yourself.
Ideally I would like to find a widow / widower in a similar situation to myself and develop a friendship / mutual support with some social activities such as pub lunches as well as walking.
I would class myself as a 'general' walker who would average 8 or 9 miles per day but could do more, like to stop for a sit down and take in the views. Not particularly in to peaks and long distance paths but having said that we had completed over 75% of the SW Coast Path.
I live in Bath and am really looking to walk in the Mendip and South Cotswold area although have done a fair bit on the Quantocks and Exmoor in the past.

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.

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

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

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.

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

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. 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;
  • Long Distance Path Walking - Multi-day walks like The Pennine Way, Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk;
  • General Day Walking

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. We've lost so much time this last year, we have lots to catch up with!

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

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 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!
