Join our friendly walks in Peterborough and surrounding areas.

The approximate distance for each walk is listed alongside contact details for the walk leader. We walk as a group every other Sunday and walks normally range between 5 and 12 miles. If you need a lift to the walk, contact the leader, who may be able to help.

You should bring sufficient food and drink, bearing in mind that the longest walks can take up to 5 - 6 hours. The walk description may include pub or tea shop stops, but these can change at the last minute, so shouldn't be relied upon.

For the latest information on changes to walks, email

Please wear suitable footwear, trainers may be unsuitable in wet and muddy conditions.  Walks are very rarely cancelled, the weather would need to be extreme. Again, just check with the walk leader.
