What we're about

This group organises walks that are fun and sociable. It is the "sister" meetup of Countryside Hiking (which has over 3,000 members). The hikes for this group are focused more on longer distances and at a faster pace.

The hikes will be between 8-20 miles and will incorporate time to view the scenery, network with fellow walkers and spend time at a pub during the day. The walk will be at the core of the "event", but socialising and seeing new things will be equally important. I look forward to seeing you at a future meetup
