GRADING OF WALKS

Walks are graded as below, irrespective of distance. 

Easy                  - generally flat with little or no climbing or gradients.

Easy Moderate  - undulating country, on good paths and gentle gradients.

Moderate          - undulating country with some stiffer/longer gradients, but nothing too difficult.

Hard Moderate - rougher undulating country with some fairly steep/long gradients.

Strenuous         - very rough country with steep/long gradients, the use of hands may be required.

LIFT SHARING
Please note if you accept a lift from Lacy Street to the starting point of a walk, we suggest that you offer £5 to the driver as a contribution towards running costs.

ALTERNATIVE WALKS
Any member contemplating organising a walk other than those on the current Walks List must inform the Walks Co-ordinators in advance, so that details can be put on the Noticeboard.  Otherwise the walk will not be covered by the Clubs' insurance policy.
