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. See below under 'More News and Pictures' for the 2020 trail walk.

Long Distance Walkers reach Kings Cross

Many of us are well used to going from Finsbury Park to Kings Cross, but how many have done it on foot? Kate Thompson tells us about a recent walk with the long-distance walking group, led by Nigel Carrick.

LALG Long Distance Walkers BBQ on a Hot Sunny Afternoon .

Seven turned out on this exceptionally hot Sunday to do fifteen miles around Therfield, Cottered, Thracking. Field paths were very, very dry, as shown in this picture.

We walked sixteen miles in a stretched Hitchin HOOP on a glorious Autumn day in September 2017. Jane took these pictures.

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.
