Nordic Walking


Letchworth & surrounding villages
United Kingdom

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 usually take place on alternate Mondays and Tuesdays with optional Saturday and evening walks, depending on what you want. All week day walks are between 3 -4 miles and finish with a coffee and chat.

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

Update: due to restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic we are holding only small group walks with our regular walkers. Induction sessions can also be arranged.


London Walks

We will not be having any walks until further notice due to Coronavirus

Our walks are about 7-8 miles, taking in locations of cultural and historical interest, and with stops for appropriate nourishment, all within the Greater London area. The Group sits somewhere between the London Villages Group and the occasional London walks of the Long Distance Walkers. 

The London Walks are on Saturdays in order to benefit from cheaper Travelcard fares and no restriction on rail travel times. Those interested should contact Peter Briercliffe (details in the panel to the right).


Dog Walking

Walks cancelled until further notice

An opportunity to get out and let your dog socialise. Walks are typically 2-3 miles long.

Bring a lead and outdoor footwear. No need to book, just turn up.

Weekend Strollers

We don’t walk quickly and cover no more than 3 - 4 miles. We usually start and end near a cafe with an optional tea/coffee when we finish our walk - but if the weather's bad then we may forget the walk and just have a hot drink! 

These walks are now taking place again, adhering to current coronavirus-related guidelines. 

Seasonal Walks

Occasional walks with a seasonal theme (Spring, Christmas etc).  See 'Events' to the right for upcoming walks. 

Early Morning Walks

These walks are now taking place again, adhering to current coronavirus-related guidelines. 

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.

Well behaved dogs welcome.

See 'Group events' column on right for dates.



Trail Walkers

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. We have now walked all the trails which come within 10 miles of Letchworth (and start/end some distance further away!) and descriptions of most of these are covered in articles below. A subset of the main group also tackle trails further afield by walking for a few days at a time, staying in hotels overnight

Walking Buddies

Events/meetings have been cancelled until further notice.


(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  the Events Panel for meetings and arranged walks.

New members are very welcome.)


Wild Walks (mostly mountainous)

Wales top to toe, the last leg  Probably June 2021 Leader: Philip Sayers
In May or June we plan to complete our top-to-toe walk through central Wales with the final section from Abergavenny to Rhoose Point (the southernmost tip of mainland Wales), walking about 16 hilly miles per day. Four nights away, cheaper (advance) train tickets, baggage carried by car between overnight stops.
If the walk interests you please contact Phil Sayers on p.sayers@gmail.com (preferred) or 01462 686798 for further details. No commitment needed until February.
Is there a long distance trail, remote area or mountainous region where you want to walk with other like-minded walkers? If so, then please get in touch.

Sunday Ramblers

We are not meeting again until the corona virus restrictions are lifted.

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!).
