Short Walks NW

Walks The walks are between 4 and 5 miles or 2hours long and are followed by a pub or café lunch. Walks take place across South Yorkshire, Kirklees area, Wakefield and North Derbyshire so plenty of choice. An email is usually circulated before giving more details of the actual walk – distance, terrain, degree of difficulty etc. Walk leaders need to provide this information to the coordinator. A list of walks is planned for each quarter, and sent out as information is updated, by email. Walks are usually circular, if a linear walk is planned the leader needs to inform everyone {through the coordinator} if either bus or cars will be used to transport back to starting point. Travel Travel to the walk meeting point should be no more than a 45mins drive. We try to car share as much as possible. Lunch Lunch is optional and venue/numbers is organised by the walk leader. Membership You will need to be a member of Sheffield U3A to be eligible to walk with us. Non U3A members can join us for two walks before joining the U3A. If the group is full you will be put on a waiting list. Equipment You will need walking boots, and appropriate weatherproof clothing and a backpack for extras, drink etc. Walking poles are useful on uneven surfaces.
