Our walks are always the third Sunday of the month, in the summer we have occasional mid-week evening strolls and HD XTRA walks. All Sunday walks start at 10.30. Please be prompt, and allow time for putting boots on, last minute trip to the loo etc!
Please note that if it is very snowy, we may cancel the walk so please check back here if the weather looks bad. Other walks in the Peak District with local women's groups can be found from our links page
Details of our most recent past walks are here on our Old Walks page. 2018

There are a couple of short ascents and one very steep descent, bring walking poles if you’re not so fond of downhill! There are several stretches of fields full of new born lambs, dogs need to be on leads please.
