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.

We meet at Letchworth’s First Roundabout, Broadway, Letchworth, start the walk at 7.00am and return to the roundabout by about 8.40am. We go whatever the weather.

Our walks are about 7-8 miles, taking in locations of cultural and historical interest, and with stops for appropr

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.

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.

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.

A whole body exercise that harnesses the benefits of walking with the use of Nordic walking poles. Learn how to walk with ease, becoming faster and walking further, whilst also having fun.

Walks will be taking place on alternate Mondays and Tuesdays with optional Saturday and evening walks, depending on what you want.

A taster session will be required to ensure you are walking correctly to get maximum benefit.

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 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.

Please phone Annie for further information

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

New members are very welcome. 

 

Our restart meeting was held too late for the March newsletter. More news will be in the April edition.

Ideally we should start a.s.a.p., usually on Saturdays when there is less going on. The walks will be approximately 3 or 4 miles.
