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.
Age Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Timing 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.
Weather 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.
Dogs 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.
Refunds 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.
