Twice a month – 2nd and 4th Thursday

We continue to undertake full day walks, all year round. We generally, but not always, aim to reach the top of something, most often but not exclusively in the Lakes, with a walk length of about 7-10 miles, and height gain of about 700-1000 metres. Group members plan and lead the walks, and numbers are kept to around 15. Details of walks on offer are circulated by email about 10 days in advance, and places booked by email.

We walk on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. Planned forthcoming walks include Helvellyn, Scafell Pike, an exploration ‘back of Skiddaw’ and a circuit of Crummock Water.   We are quite a large group, but will be very pleased to welcome new members. If you would like to join the circulation list please email to:
