Outdoor facilities

Guided walks

We offer a range of walks from pleasant half day strolls to more strenuous day long rambles. On each walk a ranger or volunteer with specialist knowledge will be on hand to chat and answer your questions.

Walks are graded to help you choose walks suitable for you:

  • Easy: A gentle stroll, usually on fairly even ground.
  • Medium: A more energetic walk, possibly involving some hill and moorland walking.
  • Hard: Strenuous walk, often all day, requiring a high standard of fitness.

Booking information

All of the walks and events are free of charge unless otherwise stated. To avoid disappointment we advise to book in advance for guided walks.

Countryside events

For all the events, including the walks, you will need appropriate footwear and clothing which you consider suitable for the activity. Don't forget your waterproofs and a packed lunch for the day long walks.

Please check beforehand if you wish to bring a dog.

Poor weather

Whatever the weather, a leader will be at the starting point of each event. In the event of extreme conditions the leader or member of staff will decide if the event will continue.
