Southern Day Walks

From the South Coast, North and South Downs to the Chilterns and all points in between, we have a selection of walks to suit all abilities.

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 can download this programme in iCalendar format (compatible with most PC and smartphone calendar applications) by clicking here.

Where a walk involves public transport it is advisable to check the train or bus times beforehand. Where a pub lunch is offered, please let the leader know by the Wednesday before the walk so that a table can be booked.
