Long Distance Walkers

Long Distance Walkers

The Long Distance Walkers group organises weekend walks, usually the fourth Sunday in the month, for people who like to do a day's walk of about 15 miles, frequently visiting somewhere other than the vicinity of Letchworth.

We try to organise at least one long weekend away during the year, and a week walking a long distance trail or similar route, plus usually some social and other ad hoc events.

In June 2017 we walked the Rob Roy Way from Drymen to Pitlochry in Scotland. This was a relatively low-level route on good paths, staying in B&B accommodation.  The weather was a bit mixed, but that's Scotland for you.

An ad hoc Saturday walk on the Thames Path and its Extension from Crayford Ness to Greenwich

Another successful weekend organised by Nigel Carrick - even if he forgot to organise the weather properly.  Two and a half days based at Kirkby Stephen in the Yorkshire Dales.

This year our annual Trail Week was the fourth section of the southwest coast path from Clovelly to Newquay.  I think by general consensus this is the hardest section of the whole 600-odd miles.

In June 2010 a group of nine LALG walkers had a wonderful time circumperambulating the Scottish Island of Arran - sixty-five miles, some of it hard going hopping over giant boulders on the beach.

This is a collection of photos taken on various walking events - mainly from the trail weeks or other trips away from Letchworth.
