Longer Walks

We also run longer walks for adults over 50. These walks are normally quarterly and offer a great opportunity to meet new people, get out of the city and give yourself a fresh challenge. The longer walks vary in length from 4-7 miles so we suggest you join us on our free walks to build up your fitness.

Previous walks have taken us to Moel Famau, the South Lakes, Formby, Grizedale, Delamere Forest, the Sefton Coast and the Wirral Coast.

'Communication is the key: talking to those on the walk and getting to know them is lovely. It gives me a purpose on a Monday morning, to get up and come out to have a chat to others and see if I can help. I go walking a lot more now - I’m not addicted but I do enjoy it and I’m thinking, "Why didn’t I do this before?"'  Freddie, Calderstones Walk
