It is the responsibility of all
walkers to ensure that they are physically fit enough to take part in the walks
that they have selected and that they have appropriate clothing and equipment.
• For most walks, walking
boots/shoes are essential.
• Carry sufficient water for
the length of the walk.
• Carry both sun protection and
wet weather protection.
• Take high energy snacks.
The walk leaders will exercise
their right to refuse to take ill-equipped walkers.
Children under 18 must be
accompanied by an adult.
Please arrive at the meeting
point at least 10 minutes before the start of each walk. This is especially
important for walks that include a bus or train journey. Walks will commence at
the given time, whether all participants have arrived or not.
The walk leader will be at the
meeting place whatever the weather. However, in exceptional weather conditions,
the walk may be re-routed or cancelled to ensure your safety.
Where dogs are welcomed on a
walk, this is indicated by the symbol. Dogs may accompany these walks and must
be kept on a short lead at all times. This symbol does not guarantee a dog
friendly route, you may need to help your dog over stiles. Dogs are not
permitted on any other walks.
The booking fee - £5.00 per
adult per walk - is non-refundable. If the booking includes additional payment
for transport or a meal, we will try to re-sell your tickets provided you
notify us of cancellation no later than 21 days in advance of the walk date.
However, our own unsold tickets will take priority. A £2.00 administration fee
will be charged per ticket resold. Any cancellations within 21 days of the walk
will not be refunded. Please inform us of any cancellation as soon as possible
since many of the walks have a waiting list.
