Hiking

Through the course of a year we go mountain and hill walking in summer and winter conditions and coastal walking in the summer. There are no official walk leaders but the more experienced members will often suggest a route; bring your own maps along and get involved in the planning. […]

If anything, it might have been too hot…the walkers elected to […]
