Trips Away

  1. Each walker is responsible for arranging their own transport and accommodation. People often share.
  2. Please email the trip organizer as soon as you know you will be joining the trip. Email addresses are shown below for each trip. We are now registering attendance as our trips away have become very popular. We are not planning on restricting numbers at present but we may need to add more walks & leaders if the number of walkers affects the choice of parking locations & also the management of the walks. Thank you.
  3. A full itinerary will be emailed to you just before the trip. GPX files can also be emailed.

TERRAIN. A landscape of ridges and valleys with large rolling hills. Coastal routes are punctuated by river valleys so there are steep ups and downs. There are lots of wide tracks which are generally well drained on the ridges. WALKS. 2 walks each day except Friday. There will be one long walk and one shorter walk although the terrain for both is hilly. The long walks range from 10 to 13.5 miles and the shorter walks from 7 to 9.5 miles.

OUTCOME OF TRIPS AWAY 2021

We are pleased that the Norwich group was able to go ahead with the three planned trips away this year despite Covid. Attendance to the Lake District, Barnard Castle & Peak District was excellent!

First of all, we would like to thank the organisers and leaders who gave their time and dedication to make the trips so enjoyable for the rest of us. At the end of the day, they are Ramblers volunteers.

We would also like to thank all the walkers who attended the trips, with a special thanks to those who returned the feed-back forms. You have made many suggestions and some of you have offered to lead on future trips! We are pleased to know that most of you rated the trips as “7” or “8”, 8 being “excellent”. Thank you! We used the earlier feed-back we had from the Lake District trip in June to add a more detailed description of the walks in the programmes. For future trips we will aim to add an approximate walk duration whenever possible, as well as more detail on the terrain, as this will help you choose the most appropriate grade for you. We are taking all suggestions into consideration but, when it comes to walking, we cannot please everyone at the same time!

Lastly, people have enjoyed being in the WhatsApp groups created for each trip, which has been helpful for easiness of communication and to share snaps of the holidays.

We look forward to seeing you on our 2022 trips!
