Welcome to Footprints

Footprints is a small friendly group organising walking events around the country; day walks, weekend breaks and longer holidays in the UK and sometimes overseas. New members are always welcome. Our age range is mostly around forties to fifties, but this is not exclusive with attitude being more important than years!

This website explains more about the club including write-ups of some of our recent events and complete local walks and national events programmes. We also have an extensive selection of photos so you can see us and share our enjoyment of the countryside. If you'd like to join Footprints or just find out more about us, please use the contact form or come along to one of our local day walks.

Footprints organises a regular programme of local walks in the Northern (the Peak District and North Wales northwards) and Southern (London and the South East and South West) areas of England. We supplement these with a year-round programme of weekend breaks and longer holidays in the UK and Europe. Accommodation for weekend and longer events is arranged at hotels, country houses, guest houses, youth hostels and bunkhouses.

We try to move these events around the country as far as possible; locations recently visited include the Lake District, the South Downs, Mid-Wales, Yorkshire Dales, the North Devon coast, Shropshire, the Chilterns and the Peak District. Destinations further afield have included the West Highlands, the Pyrenees and the Canary Islands.
