Three different grades of day walks are organised to cater for all levels of walking ability:
1. Saturday full day walks take place on the third Saturday of the month throughout the year. They are generally more difficult walks visiting the higher fells in summer and are of 8 miles + depending on the severity of the walk
2. Sunday half-day easier walks take place on the first Sunday of the month generally of around 5 miles +
3. Wednesday walks are easier walks of five miles or less at a slower pace.
Start times vary, as shown in the programme of walks.
Each walk is planned and led by an individual leader. The safety of each walk is the responsibility of the walk leader who amongst other matters must ensure that each walker is properly equipped for the conditions expected to be experienced during the walk.
All walks meet in the car park of Burton Memorial Hall where transport is arranged to the starting point of the walk using members' own vehicles.
In addition, short holidays may be added to the programme.
Membership Fee, due 1st January, is £8.00 Juniors 50p
Dogs are permitted on walks under the owner's control and MUST be on a lead when there are farm animals and on roads.
Members are required to keep together and not get ahead of the leader.
ALL WALKERS GO AT THEIR OWN RISK
