Meet on the 4th Thursday morning of the month, usually at 10 o'clock, close to the start of that month's walk.
How many members: 30
Max size: 30
Waiting list: Yes
The group meets once a month to enjoy relatively flat, circular walks, led by different members. They are of about 3.5 to 4.5 miles, lasting about 2 hours and there may be some stiles. The number on each walk is generally limited to about 18 so there may need to be a waiting list for some popular locations. We often plan to go for a meal somewhere close to the end of the walk.
