Wild Walks (mostly mountainous)

Four Wild Walkers have just returned from a walking trip through the Dales experiencing sunshine, snow and 30mph winds - deserted hills and pubs and the pleasure of the Leeds Carlisle railway.

Why not join us on our next adventure from the Brecon Beacons to the historic and restored Cardiff Bay from 10 to 14 September. This is the last leg of the walk from the northern tip of central Wales to the southern toe. Travel by cheaper (advanced ticket) trains, four nights at less than £40pp per night. Overnight bags carried by car. For full details please contact Philip Sayers

Wild Walkers visit Wales

It is fast becoming a ritual that after travelling from Letchworth, we meet up in Betws-y-Coed in the middle of the day and have an afternoon walk up to the monument on Llyn Elsi Reservoir. A lovely woodland walk finishing with beautiful views at the top before making our way to Coetmor Mill in Bethesda.

On Top of the World!

Wild walker, Peter Moore has recently achieved an amazing personal goal.
He has climbed all of the 214 peaks listed in Alfred Wainwright's seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells (1955–66).

Peter will be greatly missed by us all.


Geoff Smith writes: In November five of us stayed in Coetmor Mill for four nights from a Monday to Friday.
With powerful central heating throughout, a beautifully equipped kitchen, perfect hot showers and a cosy ‘snug’ for the evenings it deserved the title of luxury bunkhouse.

2016 Expeditions



Five members of the Wild Walks Group have successfully completed the 230-mile Cape Wrath Trail through the Scottish Highlands – nearly!

2015 Expeditions

April - the final section of the Cambrian Way trail, Barmouth to Conwy, was completed. The walk, which starts in Cardiff, is highly recommended for its combination of historical and cultural features, natural history, geography and excellent walking. Detailed maps, GPX tracks, points of interest, daily schedules, transport links etc. are available via the group contact.


August - there were two events.

Penultimate section from Alston to Garsdale.  Starting in the South Tyne valley, over Cross Fell and then up the Eden valley.  Final few miles in the headwaters of the river Ure.
