Walks of approximately 5-6 miles (Category ‘C’) usually take place on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Wednesdays of each month and walks of approximately 10-12 miles (Category ‘B’) take place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wednesdays.
All these walks start at 10.00 a.m. from the starting point of the walk unless otherwise stated. For further information please contact the walk leader/s.
If leaders can be found, additional walks will be added to the Programme as previously. This is mainly to reduce pressure of numbers on walks on the first Wednesday of the month. The format of additional walks is at the discretion of the walk leader.
