Important Notice Concerning Coronavirus

Last updated on 4th January 2021:   Details can be viewed at:  https://www.ldwa.org.uk/

The option to re-introduce social walking using the above Guidelines has been left to individual Groups to decide. Cleveland Committee discussed this option and the committee decided that we would NOT reintroduce social walks due to the practicalities of the conditions given by the NEC     


Cleveland LDWA have been established for well over 40 years.  We are a friendly Group, we do a one social walk each month, sometimes two. We usually walk on  The Cleveland Hills, Yorkshire Moors & Dales, Durham Dales and occasionally The Lake District.  Our walks vary between 15-20+ miles, with plenty of ascent.  We ask that anyone who isn't a member, but would like to try our walks, after walking with us for a couple of times, join the LDWA.  We recommend, if you haven't walked with us before, give the walks leader a call to discuss the walk.

We do not allow dogs on our walks, which we appreciate is unfortunate for those dog owners who would like to walk with us. There are however a number of other local LDWA Groups who do allow dogs.

We have Group Meetings every second Wednesday every other month, at 8.00pm. We meet in The Bowls Committee Room, at The Thornaby Pavillion, Thornaby Town Centre. TS17 9EW.  Our meetings usually last about an hour, where we discuss our walks programme, past and future and any other LDWA matters. We do occasionally have a speaker.    Come along and join us.
