We have a programme of monthly walks, both locally and further afield. Walks may vary in length from about 8 to 15 miles. The outline programme is set out below. The programme is subject to change and more information will be made available nearer the time for each walk. Additionally each monthly weekend away will have ad-hoc walks organised by people on the meet. If any non members are interested in joining the walks please get in touch with us prior to the walk using the contact form. We encourage possible new members to attend a couple of meets before committing to join us.

Please respect the countryside and follow the Countryside Code
Many club members like to bring their dogs along, and provided they are well-behaved and kept under control this is not usually a problem. Dogs may be excluded from CRoW Access Land (except on rights of way). Please check for any restrictions before bringing your dog.
Please remember that even where there are no bird restrictions, your dog may disturb ground-nesting birds,and other wildlife as well as farm animals. Dogs found worrying farm animals could be shot. The Countryside Code has some specific advice for dog walkers.
Please always clean up after your dog.
