Group name: Eastleigh
This group is a part of Hampshire Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks, Dog-friendly walks, Family-friendly walks, Path maintenance
We hold walks on most Saturdays and Sundays and a mid-week morning walk on a Tuesday or Thursday. Our walks are between 5 to 11 miles long and accommodate the walking pace of all the members of the group. On the longer walks which always involve a lunch stop, we either take a picnic or use a local pub to buy lunch, each to their own preference. Our walks programme will state whether there is a pub serving lunch, or if a picnic is the only option.
If you wish to bring a dog on our walks, please call the walk leader to check that it is a suitable walk for a dog. Dogs must be kept on a lead when passing over land where there are loose animals.
We walk thoughout the Hampshire countryside and the New Forest and our neighbouring counties, covering a variety of terrain.
We also work to protect the pathways and countryside we use so, from time to time, we organize a group of willing members to undertake practical path work.
If you are new to walking, try one of our shorter walks first. You may be surprised how quickly your fitness increases once you are walking even short walks regularly. No expensive equipment is needed - just strong non-slip boots or shoes and a waterproof jacket.
We now publish our GROUP WALKS PROGRAMME on this page. If you would like to print out the entire programme, scroll to the bottom of the blue panel on the right and click MORE WALKS. You will see a short description of each walk. Scroll to the bottom of this page and click PRINT TEXT. The complete details of the walks on this page will then print out as a list. If you click PRINT TABLE the programme will print out in table format.
THIS ONLINE PROGRAMME IS CONTINUALLY UPDATED, SO YOU NEED TO CHECK IT SHORTLY BEFORE YOU LEAVE TO GO WALKING IN CASE DETAILS HAVE BEEN CHANGED.
We occasionally plan walking holdays in other parts of the UK or abroad. In May 2018 two of our members have planned a weekend of walking the Jurassic Coast from Swanage. In September there is a trip to the Dordogne.
