Long Distance Walkers

As numbers are limited please book these walks via the walk leader. Please bring food and drink for the day.

Our meeting time, place and associated walk leader are as shown in 'Group Events'.

The Long Distance Walkers group organises walks 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.

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.

Southwest Coast Path 2013

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.
