Day Walks are always on Saturdays or
Sundays at 10am, duration about 5 hours and covering a distance of up
to 12 km. Sometimes we follow a linear route, and arrange cars to return
to the start point. Cost £14 per person, concessions £12
or £5 for under 18s. Concession
rate applies to those aged 18-25, over 60, full-time students and unemployed.
Short Walks are shorter! Duration usually
2-3 hours. Cost £10 per person.
What's involved We
walk at a moderate pace with frequent stops. All walks are suitable
for anyone who is reasonably fit and used to walking; however often
we leave the beaten track and the surface may be rough or slippery.
Walking boots are recommended. Please get in touch if you would
like to find out about the suitability of a particular walk. The
walks are graded to give you a guide as to what's involved (note
that the grades are not related to the length of the walk, which
is given in the Walk Details).
