Walking Group

Take these walks at your own pace. They cater to all abilities where possible. The walks usually last between 40 to 50 minutes followed by a hot drink and a chat. We provide transport to our various destinations, though sometimes will just walk from our base. 

Members decide on the day where the group will go. If the weather is bad you can still come along as we will always have an alternate inside plan e.g. visiting the Museum or an indoor activity on site.
