(You can book these and further Sunday walks on the form)
If the walk shown above has been crossed through, it means that all seats on the coach for that day have been sold.
Our walks are so popular that it can be difficult to book a walk at short notice. That’s disappointing, particularly for new people who can’t get on a walk straight away.
Although all seats may have been sold, we regularly have spaces when members decide not to walk for various reasons. It is usually worth turning-up 'on-spec'.
Alternatively, you would be very welcome to make your own way to the start and join one of our walks. Please contact us to be certain of the timing and start location.
You are welcome to come with us on two walks before becoming a member of The Ramblers.
Strong walking shoes, preferably boots, with well-patterned soles, and a change of footwear for the return journey. Waterproof jacket and overtrousers (gaiters are optional). Warm gloves and hat. Simple first-aid equipment. Layers of clothing allow the walker to keep warm or cool, but should not include jeans, which are very cold when wet. Change of footwear and clothing may be left on the coach during the walk.
Bring plenty to drink to last the whole day - especially important on hot days, and easy-to-eat foods - sufficient for two meals. Most walks will finish in locations with refreshments but this cannot be guaranteed.
Coach seats currently cost £12, children £6. Your booking is not confirmed until your payment has been received. Bookings are only held for five days. If your payment is not received within that time, your booking will be cancelled if others want a coach seat.
All coaches start from St John's Lane, opposite the Marriott Hotel in the City centre (L1 1RH), at 08:30. Trips to the Lake District and Yorkshire also board at Old Roan, at the bus stop by the pub, and those to the Peak District at the Rocket, at the last bus stop pre M62.
Most members who walk regularly with us find it easiest to book and pay for their upcoming walks on the coach. Bookings are also taken during our Thursday night Club Room.
At least three walks are available every Sunday. Details of the walks are circulated around the coach and you are free to chose whichever walk is suited to your ability.
Grade 'A' These walks are only suitable for strong, experienced walkers who are capable of walking 12 to 16 miles at a brisk pace with 2000 to 4000 ft or more of ascent.
Grade 'B' This grade of walk requires a good level of fitness and the ability to walk 10 to 12 miles with between 1200 to 2500 ft of ascent.
Grade 'C' Gentler walks of 8-10 miles, up to 1,000 ascent, and done at a slower pace. These walks are ideal for new members with a little hill walking experience, and for younger children. They are also great for experienced walkers who just want a less energetic walk. (If you think this is a bit much to start with, perhaps try the Public Rambles which have some easier walks.)
