What we do

Bryan Robinson Chris Shearin

There are two separate and distinct walk types each month. Bryan organises the high tops walks in the Lake District and surrounding area once a month. These tend to be 8-10 miles in length and up to 2000 to 3000 feet, usually on the third Tuesday. Chris organises the long distance path walks which could be any Tuesday, sometimes twice a month. She is careful not to clash with Bryan’s. Chris is currently doing the Westmorland Way.

We are the only group walking on Tuesdays and new members are welcome. Numbers are limited to around 15 for Bryan’s walks, for safety reasons, and 20, for logistical reasons, for the lower level sections of the long distance footpath walks. Our Christmas walk and meal is Benson Knott and takes place on 19th December.
