Oread Mountaineering Club

AAC members who live near the Peak District National Park (PDNP) are invited to join the Oread Mountaineering Club on some of their local walks. These walks are based on the PDNP boundary marked on ordnance survey maps and each stage of the ‘boundary walk’ is about 10 miles long. All walks are led by members of the OMC.


Notes regarding Day Walks

Please support the AAC(UK) by offering to lead a day walk in your area: e-mail the relevant co-ordinator to discuss your ideas.

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.  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 contact the Web Content Editor of any changes, this information can be speedily updated.

If severe weather warnings are given, contact the designated walk leader or the AAC(UK) Office beforehand.

Most of the Southern 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 at 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? – Not usually for the southern and Home Counties walks: simply arrive at the meeting place.  Sometimes it may be necessary to book lunch.  For other areas it may be necessary to register with the organiser in advance as indicated in the text.  Pre-registration will be required if Covid restrictions limit the number of walkers in a group.

The current Ordnance Survey Maps are indicated by their number, prefaced by: LR (Land Ranger) for 1:50,000 maps, and E (Explorer) or OL (Outdoor Leisure) for 1:25,000 maps.
