Northern Area Walks

From North Wales to the Peak District, Pennines, Dales and the Lakes, we have a selection of walks to suit all abilities. You’ll find details of our future walking programme on this page as well as a link to the programme for the last 12 months so you can see what you've missed!

Non-members are welcome to ’try us out’ on a couple of day walks before deciding to join, but we ask you to check with the leader first. Click on the leader’s name to send an email. Where no email address is given use the contact form and we will put you in touch. You will need to bring a packed lunch with you unless otherwise stated.
