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

My Message: Hi.
Retired,very young at heart lady, enjoys walking in nice places, and taking in the scenery, visiting a gallery, quaint coffee shop, historical building, places of interest. Currently tend to walk alone locally in west Berkshire area, taking the train to villages outside of area at times..
Always enjoyed adventures to new places..it's been ok doing things alone but got to thinking it may be more fun to share nice walks
Now I have more time, would be lovely to share the moments and have a laugh and an adventure along the way...stop off to take in the scenery and some lunch...
I'm open to walking in most places, usually near to home, And surrounding areas, but not restricted to once I know someone to go for walks with...Love walking in countryside and to villages with things to see 😊..
I do enjoy a tranquil setting...in the countryside and also can enjoy a walk in London, at one of the many parks...
I completed the walk around Hadrian's wall some time ago..completed over a few weekends...😊👍
Hoping to hear from someone soon

A bit more about 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. Sadly, my map reading & navigation skills are pretty hopeless. I don't drive.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Trips Away, Watching Some Sport, Visiting Historical Buildings ,

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

My Message: My name is Shelley, widow, originally from South Africa, last 18 years in Hampshire, living/working (flexibly)in Winchester and New Alresford. I'm looking for a walking companion to do day walks and occasionally longer, and build up my flagging fitness levels. Not great on hills at the moment - unless we can stop to admire the scenery on the way up. I did part of the Camino Frances in 2017, on my own as a relaxed walk more that a route-march, and absolutely loved it - would happily do another section.

I love to walk as part of looking at scenery and natures, not for matching from A to B or ticking off miles. Would ideally like 2 things - people to walk with locally, and someone to do some longer walks with, or do some camping.

I work irregular, part time hours, but have free time every day and days/weeks off are easy to arrange.

Lighthearted, friendly, enjoy camping, gardening, reading, nature, novice birder, bit of a home body, care hugely about the planet and could be called a tree hugger. Favourite tipple - plenty of tea or very occasionally one glass of wine or gin.

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

My Message: Hi, I am looking for new friends to explore the UK with, as I've exhausted(literally !!) my current friends, many of whom prefer short walks. During this corona lockdown I've averaged 30 miles a week - better than baking any day. My job is cabin crew, often I have 3 days off during the week with the occasional weekend. I especially love coastal walks, but am good with any terrain, just happy to be walking. I'd like to do more multi day hikes, no problem camping or staying in BnBs. I've carried a big back pack but also had it transported. I've hiked the Anna Purna Circuit and part of he Camino de Santiago, always looking for new adventures.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm a keen walker living in the South West, whilst I am comfortable walking alone, it get's boring and would love to have someone to share the experience with. Mainly I walk in the South West area, but love the mountains when I can get away. I also regularly go on Trekking holidays abroad and have done three treks in Nepal over the last 5 years (Everest Base Camp, Annapurna, and Kanchenjunga base camp). However, I am more than happy with a gentle stroll across Dartmoor as well. I am recently retired and looking forward to ticking off some 'bucketlist' walks. England Coast to Coast, South West Coast Path to name a couple in the UK, but also would love to do the Camino De Santiago. When not out walking I am a keen theatre goer and also an amateur actor. Also have a love of music.
I'm flexible when and where I can walk and have a bit of an adventurous streak so am generally up for a bit of a challenge. What I'm missing is having people to share walking with. I know there are people out there, just haven't found them yet!

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

My Message: Hi,

I have been walking for several years and would spend every day of the week doing so - if only time would allow.

Although semi-retired I still do some work which allows me free time in the week as well as some weekends.
I have walked much of beautiful Wiltshire and would love to find a walking buddy or buddies now that my best buddy has knee injuries and unable to do the miles we used to do.

I am not a hardened hiker, but love a day of 10 to 12 miles maybe with an end of the day trip to a good pub for some food and glass of wine.
I consider myself a good laugh and easy company. I no longer have my dog who was the best walking buddy but love any dog who likes to join the outing.

I'm not brilliant at maps and have been known to miss the odd path on occasions, but have always found my way home! I can battle a good rainstorm too!

One day, I would love to walk the Scottish Coast, and also,The Lake District looks fantastic with maybe a B&B stay making a good end to each day, but of course it's so much better to share the views.
I have a camper van too which can be a bonus.

I am happy to travel if it means a good days walking is on the end of it.

I really look forward to hearing from you.

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. I'm vegan ( you don't have to be) and a reasonable cook though do enjoy dining out too. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me, get in touch.

Chris

My Message: Hello! My name is Umesh and I am keen to find someone to explore hiking trails with over, in particular, over the next few months given we can't travel overseas.

I'm a keen hiker and amateur mountaineer (last year I climbed Mont Blanc and Kili) but really just enjoy getting out into nature and it doesn't have to be too strenuous. When we are allowed, I'd ideally like to do a bit more exploring in the Lakes and perhaps further afield in Scotland and Wales.

I'm not working at the moment so have plenty of time on my hands although that could change. I'm currently studying for my WSET level 3 wine course so am a bit tied up with that over the next few weeks but looking for some adventures in July!

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

My Message: I am a fit mid 50s male living in West Dorset. I am constantly active & and enjoy walking the beautiful local coastal & rural routes. Not into gruelling walks as I walk for a living but just want some female company to accompany me on SW Coast Path and other well known walks. Age not a problem, I have a variety of interests and most importantly I am a good listener & interested in other peoples' lives.I am easy to get on with and certainly not into 'competetive' walking. I get enough of that at work.

I have a partner whose health condition means she is fairly inactive across local terrain so purely looking for a walking companion/friend, nothing else. I have a wide range of interests, mainly horticulture, history, geography & fast motorbikes. I lead quite a busy life so would prefer to keep the walks to the Bridport/Dorchester/Weymouth areas.

My Message: Hello,
I am interested in meeting male or female friends to go walking with, especially now the warmer weather is approaching (provided that this lockdown eventually ends). I am based in Lancashire however I can drive and have a car so I am willing to go further afield. I am a bit out of practise with walking very long distances as my friends are not the hiking-types so I've struggled to find people to go with me in the past. However, I would really like to challenge myself and I hope to meet like minded people. I have a springer spaniel who would be joining me.

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

My Message: Retired male just looking for some good easy going female company, for hikes along the South West Coast Path, and in other parts of the UK. I'm retired so travelling is not a problem. I would like to walk in Scotland, The Lakes, Wales and possibly Ireland at some point.
Obviously at the moment, the country is in virtual lockdown, due to the Corona Virus, as I write this 20/3/20 So I'm doing my best to follow the governments advice.
So for the time being it's going to be hikes away from the crowds on my own, and should I meet another hiker en-route then I'll resort to vaulting over the nearest hedge, to avoid contact ;)

So I'll carry on as the lone hiker, for the time being.

Good luck to all the hikers and walkers here, and to any NHS workers on this forum, God Bless you all.

A bit more about me:

I really don't like Scrambling & Edges - they are defintely not for me. I prefer warm, dry & sunny weather but can cope with the odd shower. 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.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Wa11 hoping to meet just Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hello to everyone, I've been a hill and mountain walker for many years now. In my early 60s, I am inclined to sit on a comfortable rock and watch the world go by. During a walk on a nice day. I backed packed round the world with a friend just a few years ago and would like to do it again in the not to distant future.

I would like to meet females for new adventures. I'm happy to do any grade of walk. From half a day on the flat to a couple of days backpacking in the hills. Camping B+Bs Pubs or Hotels, i don't mind. I can do weekdays and weekends. Tried the photo, says it was OK but it does not seem to have appeared!

Many thanks, hope to hear from you.

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 like walking with dogs but do not have one of my own. I'd say my map reading & navigation skills are pretty good. I can drive and have my own Campervan/Motorhome.

I am also interested in:

  • Camping on Campsites - Camping where there is a shop, toilets, showers & possibly a pub;
  • Back Packing - Multi-day walks carrying all your gear & wild camping;
  • 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 early 50s, based near Basingstoke hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: I am a happy and fun loving 53 year old woman who enjoys walking and riding a tandem. I am a good listener and enjoy both chatty walks and peaceful times in the countryside.
Unusually I am a visually impaired walker who needs to be guided but not supported to walk confidently, so I am looking for kind men and women who are happy for me to gently hold their arm.
Wwalking companions who are not too far away would be ideal, although I am happy to travel by train to meet for walks.
I have regularly been walking 6-10 miles at the weekend until two months ago. I go to the gym four times a week and swim to keep fit. I used to enjoy looking at wild flowers and birds when walking but this is more limited now. A good pub at the end of a walk is always welcome!

I hope to meet a companion for regular walks and possibly walking holidays in the future, in the UK and abroad. I work so I am only free to walk on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and when on holidays from work.

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

My Message: Hi, I'm Leo. I'm single and retired with no commitments, so free to walk anytime.

I was brought up in Dorset, and walking the hills and coast path is something I've enjoyed since childhood. I don't consider myself a dedicated walker, so I am very happy to combine walking with some exploration, sight seeing and of course, lunch or coffee.

I would like to meet similar minded men or women who like the outdoors and nature but perhaps would also like to share other interests. Mine include the sea, travel, art, theatre, tennis(beginner) and raquetball. I'm fairly easy going and enjoy new places and experiences.

Finding new friends local to me would be great for regular walks, but I also like to go on walking holidays in the UK or abroad.

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 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.

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;

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 early 40s, based near Oakham, Rutland hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi everyone, I would love to meet up with other people to walk - virtually anywhere. I particularly love hill-walking (Scotland, Lakes and Snowdonia my favourite) and have bagged some 3000fters, but am keen to walk anywhere. Friends and family are just not hikers. Even my dog is ageing so much that a short walk around the park will satisfy him (he stays at home/in the car when I walk).

I love camping, hiking in beautiful scenery, and would love some company. I have a car and am happy to travel, although of course if you are closer to me meeting up for a day hike will be easier. With a busy work schedule, I am generally a weekend walker but will take time off when I get a walking opportunity that is too good to miss.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 30s, based near Elstead, Surrey hoping to meet both Male and Female new friends to go walking with.

My Message: Hi my names Luke and I'm looking to make some new friends like-minded walking companions. My previous walking buddy recently moved to New Zealand so looking for someone to fill his boots.

I'm fairly new to hiking but have done a few wild camping excursions in the Scottish Highlands, Wales and Snowdonia..I've bagged a few munros including Sgurr Alasdair-Isle of Skye, Nevis, Buachaille Etive MÃēr also done Snowdon and some other Welsh peaks. I am now keen to do Scafell pike!

I work as a head gardener so the love the great outdoors come rain or shine. I would mostly be looking at weekend hikes or daytrips to the lakes,Wales or Scotland. I have a basic campervan which makes things easier. I have an Alaskan malamute who sometimes accompanies me if possible.

Someone fairly close to my area would be good as I'm also keen for local walks at other times. Please get in touch if you think we'd get along and would like to plan some adventures.

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

My Message: I am retired and do love walking. My wife is not so keen as I am,so I am looking for a walking companion,either male or female. I tend to go locally but can go further afield.I am reasonably fit for my age and I do like to stop and admire the scenery or take some photos. I am interested in swimming.Also cycling...but this tends to be locally following the Thames path and away from traffic. I also like wild swimming normally in the Thames but it could be anywhere. I love visiting Spain and speak tolerable Spanish. I have a few grandchildren which is great.I tried camping in Wales with an outdoor group I belong to and loved it.I know most of the walks within 45 minutes drive from here,so it would be nice to try new areas
