This group walks every Sunday with alternating 09.30 & 10.30am starts. Walking distances of between 7 to 10 miles and whenever possible we try to include a shorter walk of around 5 or 6 miles. Please check with the relevant walk leader, to see if a shorter walk is available, and always check our website for the latest updated information.
Current Walk Program (printable) Please check website regularly
as walk venues/times can & do change.
There are also monthly Thursday morning short walks of approximately 4 to 5 miles with a 10.00a.m. start normally ending in a coffee shop.
We have Wednesday evening short walks during the Spring & Summer months again of approximately 4 to 5 miles with a 6.30pm. start.
All of our walks start from the old "Civic Centre" car park DH3 3AU, (unless otherwise stated),up to 30 minutes prior, for meet & greet newcomers and regulars and to make car sharing arrangements before heading off to the start.
Our group strongly advocate the use of car sharing as it reduces the number of cars on already overcrowded roads and reduces the amount of CO2 being pumped into our atmosphere. It also prevents numerous cars parking at the walk start and allows non-car owners to participate in the healthy activity of walking in the beautiful countryside. Passengers are requested to donate a nominal amount to the car drivers, towards fuel etc.
We provide the opportunity to make new friends and improve your health whilst enjoying walks of a varied nature, We are free to try, and after 3 walks we are sure you will want to join us.
