Men’s Walking Group

“Field and Fountain, Moor and Mountain”

From the Lake District to the Yorkshire Dales, From Blencathra to Pen-y-Ghent.

A group of up to 12 of us (and up to 4 dogs) walk twice a month – more or less whatever the weather. A mixture of low level strolls, and more challenging fell walks up to 8 miles. Suitable stops for coffee, lunch and inevitably ending near a pub.

As well as the fresh air and exercise, plenty of time for chatting about important things – broadband speed, potholes etc., generally putting the world to rights. But also a great chance for fellowship and getting to know one another better, as well as enjoying the wonderful countryside around us.
