Notes regarding Day Walks

This walking programme provides an opportunity for members to meet one another and keep their walking fitness while not in the Alps.

Most of the walks in the South of England are organised to start at a Railway Station with a train connection to a central London Mainline Station, and often connections to regional stations too, although details of these are not usually given.

Most of the Southern walks, and some Northern walks, have a pub stop for lunch, followed by the second stage of the walk in the afternoon. Please do not consume your own food or drink in the pubs. Pubs often prefer you to remove your boots, or put plastic bags over them.

Do you need to book for a Day Walk?  Simply arrive at meeting place. At railway stations meet outside the main entrance.

If severe weather warnings are given, phone the organiser. Maps are Ordnance Survey Land Ranger 1:50,000 (LR), Explorer Outdoor Leisure (OL) and Explorer 1:25,000 (E).

Please do not consume your own food or drink at the pubs without landlord’s consent.

Walk start times are usually based around the published railway timetables. Be aware that these times can change at short notice due to essential railway maintenance work, so please check before you set out. If Walk Leaders let the Webmaster know of any changes, this list can be speedily updated.
