Peak & Northern Footpaths Society (est.1894)

Walks

PNFS members regularly get together for sociable walks in the countryside. All members are welcome. Prospective members are especially welcome and a walk is a great way to find out more about the society.

There's usually a short walk (5-9 miles) on the second Wednesday of each month, and a longer, usually hilly, walk (9-12 miles) on the last Wednesday of each month. All walks are accessible by public transport.

Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and bring lunch. If you are travelling on public transport, please check rail/bus times before setting out. You are responsible for your own safety during the walk. PNFS walk leaders reserve the right to exclude anybody from the walk.

The description of each walk includes contact details for the leader, who will be pleased to answer any questions or concerns you might have. If you are not yet a member, please contact our longer walks co-ordinator, Ken Smith, kensmith4rj@icloud.com 07918 154959

Walk leaders are PNFS members and volunteers. We're always looking for new walk leaders - see our page Lead a walk.
