OUR CLUB

We're a friendly and sociable group of people from all walks of life, who all have one thing in common - a love of walking.

We walk every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday all year round and hold a club night each month October to March.

We always welcome newcomers to come and try our walks and there is no reason to be put off if you are on you own, Walking in a group is a good way to meet other people.

The club is made up of around 250 members, and our base is Calderdale and surounding area.


Join us for a Walk

You don't have to be a member to join a walk to see if it's for you.

How fit do I need to be

We offer a range of walks fron 4 to 14 miles.

A general level of fitnes is required, however all walks are graded to help you decide which would be ok for yourself. Start easy and work up the scale.


Equipment?

A suitable pair of walkingboots/shoes, warm and waterproof clothing, a rucksac and a packed lunch/drink is all you need to get you started.


What caracteristics do I need?

Just a sense of adventure and some humor and don't mind getting wet or muddy at times.

We walk in sun,wind,rain and snow and say there is no such thing as bad weather only the wrong clothes.

GOOD PRACTICE

Will all walkers please be considerate to other members of the public, when waiting at bus stops or geting on/off the bus.

It's the club's good name that will be tarnished.
