Overview

'We are a small friendly group of walkers who walk in the Lake District Cumbria. Although we started in 1999 as a singles walking group we are now a mix of singles and couples - is this the test of a successful singles group? All are welcome Singles, Couples, or just Independant. We walk on Sundays throughout the year and some midweek evenings from April to September. We also have an occasional weekend away.'

Overview

'The origins of "Footprints Walking Club" can be traced back to the Summer of 1987 when a group of walkers met on a holiday in the Lake District and decided to organise a "reunion" weekend. This led to more weekends being arranged and gradually programmes of day walks as well.'
