All about our Sunday walks!

Post  Admin on Thu Oct 18, 2012 8:28 pm

General Info - Sunday walks.
Most of the year the Sunday walks tend to be 8-10 miles in length, but as the daylight hours get shorter in the period between mid-November and mid-February, we normally keep the walks down to a maximum of 8 miles, to ensure that we can complete them in daylight. We also mainly try and arrange winter ones in and around the Sheffield area, in case of bad weather.

Outside this winter period, our walks take place in the Peaks, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Notts and Staffordshire. The furthest away from the centre of Sheffield that we arrange them is normally one and a quarter hours by car. As there are so many lovely places to walk that you can only get to by car, this is how we normally expect people to get to the start. If there is public transport available, this will be mentioned in the walk details for a particular walk. We also encourage car sharing wherever possible, and can normally obtain lifts for people who do not have their own transport.

The Sunday walks are nearly always circular walks and are often over rugged terrain, and can include ascents of over 2000 feet. They are completed at a steady pace, with lots of stops, but are not suitable for people who have never undertaken similiar walks before.

Each walker is expected to be suitably dressed for the weather/time of year, and have sufficient food and drink for the duration of the walk (usually 5-6 hours). There is always a decent stop for lunch, and as there is often nowhere to buy food and drink en route, most people take a packed lunch with them. At the end of the walk, we normally head to a local pub to do some socialising, and find that it's a great way to end the day.

If anyone has any walk suggestions we will be more than happy to include them. Every walk undertaken so far has been suggested by a group member.
