2018 Programme of walks

posted 10 Feb 2018, 06:26 by jenny rookes
Hi everyone,
after a bit of a break, we are hoping to revive the Green Mountains walking group this year and have a full programme of day walks, once a month from late February until November. Some of the walks will be on Sundays, as before, but some will be on Mondays which is easier for the monks and, hopefully, no more difficult for the householders, most of whom (with some honourable exceptions), are retired or part time or self employed. I know that no dates will suit everyone but I hope there will be some dates that all of us can make.

If you are not sure if these walks would be suitable for you (or your dogs) please get in touch with me to discuss. 

Contact me by e mail :

Some Do's and Don'ts
  • let the organiser (usually me) know you are coming and, if you change your mind, let me know that too
  • be at the meeting place promptly for the start (10.30 unless otherwise specified)
  • bring stout, walking footwear and suitable clothing ( in practice this always means at least a waterproof jacket and jumper or fleece and often gloves and hat)
  • bring drinks and lunch      
  • suggest routes you think the group would enjoy
  • think you have to be super fit. Some walks are more strenuous than others, especially the Lake District ones, but the description will always say how long they are and how                      steep.  No one will get left behind and, if someone needs to turn back, someone will always go with them. 
  • think you need to know how to navigate or have a map of your own - there will be a walk leader who can do all of that.

Dates of the walks this year are as follows - please put in your diaries. 

February 27 Monday 
March 26 Monday
April 8 Sunday
May 21 Monday
June 18 Monday
July 29 Sunday
August 26 Sunday 
September 17 Monday
October 28 Sunday
November 19 Monday

Hope to see you then

With bows
Jenny Rookes
