Long walks

We are a friendly walking group and like to stretch our legs, usually covering 8-12 miles. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month, starting time 10.00am. We walk in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire, often exploring areas we have not visited before. Usually we join up with the ‘Hikers’ group of Burton Joyce U3A.

Although we walk at a steady pace, we do take time to look at the landscape, wild flowers, fungi and anything else of interest along the way. Members of the group volunteer to lead the walks and often have researched facts or history of the area we are visiting. We car-share where possible and sometimes hire a minibus.

All new members welcome.
