Welcome to the WILTSHIRE LDWA Website



Wiltshire LDWA



Welcome to the Wiltshire Long Distance Walkers Association website. The LDWA is a national organisation whose aim is to further the interests of those who enjoy long distance walking. The Wiltshire group is one of 44 regional groups across England, Wales and Southern Scotland organizing activities within Wiltshire

The Wiltshire group was formed in 1983 and has been an active group ever since. With a membership from a wide variety of backgrounds, we are a happy bunch that don’t take themselves too seriously.

We run social walks throughout the year, the details of which can be found in our ‘Future Events’ section. These vary in distance depending on the time of year (distances can range from 16 to an eye watering 50 miles), locations wise walks are within Wiltshire and the surrounding counties. Occasionally we partner with other LDWA groups and travel further afield.

We normally go away for a couple of mini breaks in the UK and in recent year’s destinations have included: - the Isle of White, Cornwall and Wales.

Each month we aim to have two Sunday and Thursday mid-week walks. But please look at the ‘Future Events’ section as these sometime have to flex if we have to use public transport.

If you are interested in joining, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of the committee members and we’ll answer any questions and make sure that on your first walk we introduce you to everyone and show you the ropes.

You don’t need to join the LDWA to try out our walks, but after several walks you’re be expected to.

We look forward to hearing from you.
