Middle Way Walkers

A walking group offering a programme of day walks in the London area. It is primarily aimed at those members who would like to do a middle distance walk of 7.5 to 8.5 miles.
For practical reasons, including health and safety, each walk will be restricted to 18 members, with places allocated on a first come/first served basis.
The programme is being developed by Jane Saunders and Gill Shiel who are regular participants on the longer walks and have experience of walk leadership. As the main focus of the group will be walking, the leaders will set a reasonable pace (2 to 2.5 miles an hour) and although there will be refreshment stops, these will be kept to a minimum. It is expected that walkers will provide their own packed lunch and carry enough water to keep well hydrated.
All walks will be in London and its immediate environs with journey times a maximum of one hour each way.
Whenever possible the group leader will have received Emergency First Aid training.
To help ensure that we all enjoy our walks, members of the Group are strongly advised to become acquainted with our walks etiquette, which contains common sense advice to ensure everyone’s safety. There is also advice about suitable clothing, and bringing dogs on walks.
