WALKING

Our Walking group, is nearly fifty strong, and being such a large group we are divided into three as shown below.

For more information on any of our walking groups please click the Contact button below, stating in your email if you are interested in Short, Long or 7+ walks.


SHORT WALKS

Starting from various locations, these walks are generally at a slower pace and cover a distance of about two and a half miles.


Wherever possible a 'coffee stop' is incorporated. Numbers may be low so it is nice if participants contact the day's leader by the evening before.

WHEN & WHERE WE MEET

Various locations on the third Wednesday of the month starting at 10.00am.

LONG WALKS

We hold an annual meeting in North Walsham each November to arrange walk leaders for the upcoming year.  Well behaved dogs are very welcome on our walks and we generally have at least 3 dogs on the walks.  Where possible dogs are allowed off-lead.

Information about the month's walks is sent out via email around the middle the previous month.  Approximately 10-20 people attend each walk;  we are a very friendly and welcoming group and at the end of each of the walks a nearby venue, often a pub, is chosen and those who wish to attend have lunch together.

If a walk has to be cancelled due to inclement weather then this is usually notified via an email hopefully before 9.00am on the morning of the walk.

WHEN & WHERE WE MEET

Our walks are in various venues led by a member of the group and start at 10.00am on the
Second Wednesday of the month (4-5 miles)
Last Friday of the month (slightly longer walk 5-7 miles)

7+ WALKS


This walking group is dog free and our walks are around seven miles, taking about 2-3 hours walking at quite a quick pace with a few stops for catch up. Anyone can initiate a walk and contact one another to plan the start point, advise the route, fix times and start points.

Some walks are in one direction and if so we take public transport either from North Walsham to the start of the walk or by driving to a bus stop, taking the bus to the start point and then walking back to our cars. Some are walks are circular, starting finishing in same place, but we generally finish the walk with a meal and sometimes will start the walk with breakfast.  Everyone is welcome, of course, they just need to be able to do the distance and keep the pace.


WHEN & WHERE WE MEET
​We don’t have a fixed day to walk and are happy to go out any day of the week when members of the group are available. Walks are ad hoc according to our other activities, so are not every month, but could be twice in one month for instance, and start about 10.00am.
