Walk Leaders

The Healthy Walking Group invites U3A members to join us on our walks on Tuesday and/or Thursday each week. The walks are not ‘a stroll’, and walk leaders expect participants to keep up a good pace, making a much greater effort than when walking the dog or going round the shops!  Naturally, everyone has a different walking pace, and every walk has a leader and a person at the rear wearing fluorescent jackets, but every walker needs to be capable of staying within these two people.

Our walks take between one to one and a half hours, and start at 10 am in winter and 9 am in summer.  Walking shoes or stout trainers are essential as the walking surface can vary from tarmac to very rough or muddy tracks.

We welcome dogs, but on a short lead walking at the rear.

At the end of each walk we adjourn to a local bar for coffee/drink but this is not compulsory!

You can consult our walk schedule and a description of the walks on the website.  Some walks may be unsuitable for you because of the walk surface or the steepness of the terrain.

You should register with the Healthy Walking Group at a U3A General Meeting or by contacting the Group Leader by email.  This will ensure you understand more about the walking group, and that you receive emailed copies of the walk schedules and news of any walk alterations or cancellations.

If you enjoy our walks and would like to walk them again with friends, each walk description is available on our website.


Please remember: you walk at your own risk. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are capable of doing the walks that you undertake. Please read the terrain characteristics carefully to avoid spoiling your walk and that of your fellow walkers.
Thank you
Your walk leaders
