About Us

Walks are led by one of the experienced club members who have led many walks over many years. Normally there are about 5 - 10 people on a walk, enough for some good conversation without being unwieldy. On walk days, we meet at points in Peterborough and Stamford, so that we minimise the cost of the walks. The only charge we make is to cover the cost of the fuel. This naturally varies with the number of walkers and the distance we have to travel.

If you wish to take part in any of the listed walks then let us know by email 48 hours before the walk so that we can arrange cars. Our email address is peterboroughwalkingclub@gmail.com.

Our main meeting place in Peterborough is the car park at Thorpe Wood, which is on Holywell Way where it joins Thorpe Road PE3 6NB (///faced.noise.dated). For walks where we travel north up the A1, a second meeting place is at the Danish Invader pub in Stamford PE9 2SX (///stickler.shot.replays) as indicated in walk details. Click on the links for maps of the meeting points.

Before you join the club you are invited to join us on a walk to see what you think. If you aren't an experienced walker we recommend you try one of the easier walks first.

Members of the Walking Club receive a 10% discount at Go Outdoors at the former Stage 2 Freemans, Saville Road Industrial Estate, Peterborough, PE3 7PR.
