Please send your group walk GPX files, and  any comments about the walk (by leaders or participants), to the group walk secretary.

The following GPX files are displayed in date order of the walk, latest first. Some walks are not full group walks, as we go out regularly during the week on unpublished walks. Please contact the group walk secretary for further details.
