Walks Diary 2022

Below is a summary of the walks diary for the group. WASP walks are "Walks at a slower pace". These will be similar distances to the usual longer walks, but at a slower pace, so finishing slightly later in the day.

The Walk Programme will be updated throughout the year as more walks are finalised.by the walk leaders etc. Walks will be led under the covid safe guidelines established by the LDWA National Executive Committee. Please familiarise yourself with the National Committee Guidance for social walks in England before attending the walk.  Walkers must not attend LDWA social walks if they or close contact has recently been diagnosed with or show any covid-19 symptoms, are awaiting test results or are self-isolating under government guidance.
