SCHEDULED WALKS

Our scheduled walks, usually take place on  Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Where possible, we try to arrange two short  and two long walks each week with the Wednesday and Thursday walks alternating between short and long. A figure of eight walk, where the lunch break will be at the original start point, allows for a short and long walk on the same day! Coach trips generally replace the local walks.

MORNING (and some AFTERNOON and EVENING) WALKS

As seen from the histogram above there are a lot of walks from 4 to 6 miles. These usually take place in the morning, but do include an occasional afternoon or evening walk, the latter usually take place in the summer with extra walks at Christmas, Easter, and Bank Holidays.

Typically there is a morning break of 10 min's during which, you can drink your own coffee or water or, if you are lucky, there maybe a cafe available.

DAY WALKS

These walks are often between 9 and 14 miles. There is usually one walk a year which is between 20 and 30 miles (Not shown in the histogram).

They normally start mid-morning (10:00 to 11:00) and finish between 15:30 and 17:00 depending on their length. The standard break for lunch is 45 minutes, but the duration will be set by the leader - could be between 20 and 60 minutes. There are normally "drink your own drinks" breaks of 10 minutes in the morning and the afternoon. Whereas morning walks tend to be more leisurely, all day walks often have a little more impetus to ensure the finish does not run into the early evening.
