About Us

Do you like walking in the beautiful English countryside? Our friendly and lively club organises weekend walks into the many varied areas of countryside outside London and as far as the coast, throughout the year.

Our walks take pace on Saturdays and all start from country locations, reached by rail from the main London stations. This is where most of us meet up at about 9 - 9.45 a.m., before travelling out together. Others sometimes join the group at the start point.

Walks are generally 8 - 10 miles in length and the pace is reasonable and considerate. Leaders are experienced and routes are chosen for their beauty and interest. We sometimes visit places of interest such as galleries en route, and we often end the day at a tea-shop or cafe.

At lunchtime there is a welcome rest at a country pub. Some take advantage of the pub grub on offer, others munch their sandwiches before popping in to the pub for a drink or a coffee and a visit to the loo!

We are always delighted to welcome new walkers, both Morley students and Friends and anyone else out there.... Why not join us for a couple of trial walks after which we will be pleased to offer you membership of the club at a modest £8 per annum. Non-students will be invited to join the Friends for an additional £5.

Our walks programmes are published three times a year on this web-site so you can plan your outings up to 4 months in advance. A more detailed paper version is posted to all members. The full programme is also displayed on our notice-board in Morley College.

We organise one or two trips away each year, lasting 4 to 5 days, to various picturesque locations. Last September we went to Sidmouth, and we've recently visited The Lake District, The Peak District and the Pembrokeshire Coast. There are also regular social functions such as a Christmas Lunch and a photographic competition.

Do get in touch!  See Contact page for details.

If you would like to come along, do wear walking boots or stout footwear and listen to the weather forecast. Please note also that walking, like all leisure activities has its attendant hazards, and all walkers should take due care at all times.

Oh, and don't forget your water and your lunch!
