The LDWA National Executive Committee has decided that following a change to HM Government advice 're COVID-19, all LDWA social & challenge walks will end with immediate effect. The NEC will review weekly or if advice changes.  Full statement can be viewed at https://www.ldwa.org.uk/


We have therefore cancelled the walk scheduled for this coming Saturday 21st March and all of April Walks, we will keep you updated on a monthly basis as to the situation, however no walks are expected to take place in the foreseeable future.


To comply with the Guidelines we have also cancelled the Group Meeting due to be held on Wednesday 8th April.





Cleveland LDWA have been established for well over 30 years.  We are a friendly Group, we do at least one social walk a 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.
