Walking

We normally meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month.  Come and join our friendly group for a 4-5 mile walk usually finishing with an optional pub lunch!  Our walks are designed for all comers. New members always made welcome.

Note: Please ring the walk leader (rather than group contact) when booking in for each walk.

 

We meet at Letchworth’s First Roundabout, Broadway, Letchworth. We start at 7.00am and frequently walk around the Willian area, returning to the roundabout by about 8.30am. We go whatever the weather.

If anyone would like to walk further on either day, say up to 10 miles, please let William Armitage know and we will try to arrange it.

See 'Group events' column on right for dates.

 

Weekly brisk walk - dogs are welcome - starting at 2.00pm each Friday, outside David's Bookshops, 14 Eastcheap, Letchworth.

Return after lively conversation an hour later with rosy cheeks!

No need to book - just turn up and set off with anyone who turns up.

The Long Distance Walkers group organises Sunday 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 usually meet during second or third week of the month, on varying weekdays. Our walks are normally within a 20 mile radius of Letchworth and up to 10 - 12 miles. Typically the walks are circular or figure of eight and normally feature a pub lunch.

This friendly group walks monthly, usually during the third week of the month and on sequential weekdays to allow walkers with fixed activities to fit in.

Occasional walks with a seasonal theme (Spring, Christmas etc).  See 'Events' to the right for upcoming walks. 

These are easy paced walks led by volunteer walk leaders and are in the region of 3 to 4 miles on mostly level ground normally avoiding stiles.

We walk monthly alternating the days from Tuesday one month  through to Friday the following months before going back again to Tuesday.

We take gentle strolls on good paths, with no stiles, possibly some inclines but no hills, up to 2 miles (but often less).

For our convenience, pubs usually feature on our routes. 

We hibernate for the winter and emerge in spring, however we are late coming out of hibernation this year as we need someone to co-ordinate our activities and people to lead our walks.

We meet on the first Sunday of the month. Walks are 7 - 10 miles at a medium pace.  We usually take a packed lunch and a drink. (though we try for a pub stop!).

This group tackles some of the many waymarked trails in the UK, usually in day long walks of 10 to 12 miles on the second Tuesday of each month. The Icknield Way Path was completed in 2013 and in 2014 we tackled the John Bunyan Trail, 77 miles through the Bedfordshire countryside. At the end of 2014 and during all of 2015 we completed the Hertfordshire Way which is a 170 mile circular trail round Hertfordshire in 14 stages of between 10-15 miles each stage.

Members contact each other for ad-hoc walks and we also arrange group walks.

We meet for coffee, usually monthly, to talk about walks we have done which others may enjoy, or walks we would like to do. New members are always welcome.

See 'Events' to the right for meetings and arranged walks.

New members are very welcome. 

 

With walks of 3-4 miles this group has resumed for 2017.

We don't walk quickly and cover no more than 2½ miles.
