The Hampshire Walking Group is a friendly and welcoming group of all ages and backgrounds.
The Group is dedicated to walking throughout rural Hampshire and into surrounding counties, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, West Sussex and The Isle of Wight.
As we like to support the rural economy the group always has a short pub visit after the walk. It is recommended that members attend but not compulsory.
We have a full programme of day walks all year round together with several trips away. In 2015 we walked in places such as Snowdonia, The Lake District and Dartmoor. In 2016 we have had an Easter trip to The Malvern Hills, a trip to The North Wessex Downs and The Ridgeway Path in May, The Brecon Beacons in July, The Yorkshire Dales in August and Exmoor in October.
Already on the programme for 2017 is an Easter trip (mid April) to Dartmoor and a week in The Shropshire Hills in May.
We welcome committed walkers who have an interest in the countryside and nature who wish to make a positive contribution to The Group.
Particularly welcome are those who are willing to walk in all weathers and at all times of the year.
The Group is exclusively for responsible adults over eighteen years of age and well behaved dogs of any age.
There will be a charge of £1.00 per member/guest per day walk. 50p for short/evening walks. This is to cover the cost of running The Group. Members also have the option of paying £10 for one year of unlimited walks. This is payable in January of each year.
The Hampshire Walking Group has a policy of never cancelling walks unless severe weather makes it unsafe. If in any doubt please contact The Organizer or Walk Leader and check the website for any updates.
This Group will never cancel a walk because of a bit of rain or wind.
This is an active walking Group. Please only join The Group if you are committed to attending walks. Membership will be cancelled for those who do not attend a walk within three months of joining.
Most of our walks are approximately ten/ twelve miles long and at a moderately brisk pace so please ensure you are up to this standard before joining The Group.
And please only join this Group if you have your own transport.
