What we're about

Do you love walking and being in the countryside? Do you want to get to know more like-minded people in the area?

This is primarily a walking group for people in their 20s and 30s to meet other 'outdoorsy' types. We will also put on other activities from time to time and always welcome suggestions.

We are an informal group, not a club, and we are not trained mountain leaders.

Walks will be approximately 10 miles, so you'll need to come prepared with appropriate footwear, clothing and sufficient water and food for the day. The organiser(s) will indicate the expected level of challenge:

Leisurely pace walk, ideal for newcomers to hill walking, but you must still be fit enough to cover the distance in the time allocated. Will end at a pub!

You should be physically fit enough to manage a walk of this length and be walking at a consistent moderate pace for around 5 hours. There may be tricky or steep sections, muddy slopes, etc. Most of our walks fall into this category.

You must be in good fitness, able to walk at a brisk pace for 12 to 16 miles with steep climbs and few breaks; there may be challenging scrambles and mild peril.

Experienced Only
You must be a regular mountaineer who is up for a challenge. This is not recommended for first timers, and you must be in very good fitness.

Please note that by joining a walk or other activity, you take responsibility for your own actions and participate at your own risk. Bear in mind that the routes planned are not usually pre-walked so do be patient with your organisers if the footpaths aren't where they are supposed to be!!

The majority of the walks will be no more than 90 minutes drive from Nottingham, with occasional trips further afield or weekends away.

Don't drive? Some walks will be accessible by public transport which will be stated if applicable but due to the remote nature of the Peak District and surrounding areas we can't always guarantee this. If you are interested in joining a walk but don't drive, please post on the event to see if there are any drivers going from your area willing to offer a lift in exchange for a fuel contribution.

All of our events are free to attend but we do need donations towards the costs of running the group through Meetup to keep it going.

This is not a fee or a membership, we are a free group, but we won't be able to stay on MeetUp if the organisers have to bear the brunt of the cost. Excess monies will be donated to Mountain Rescue.

Monzo (does not require you have an account or the app):  https://monzo.me/alisonwoodhouse/1.00?d=%23Walkers%20donation%20%E2%9B%B0to
PayPal (send as a friend to avoid charges): https://paypal.me/alinottmwalkers?country.x=GB&locale.x=en_GB

This money is held in a Monzo pot by a group organiser. We keep enough to pay for the next couple of six monthly charges, if we find ourselves with more than is need, we will make a donation to Mountain Rescue.

Please note that we reserve the right to remove people from the group if you do not show up without giving at least 6 hours notice for events on 3 separate occasions.
