Our walks cover a large area of the south-west Midlands, with only a few of them being ‘adopted’ walks. Occasionally they are photographed and documented. A few of them can be discovered on our Other Walks pages.

Walks leaders are always in great demand, and the Society is grateful to anyone who is willing to lead walks either regularly, just now and then or even as a one-off. You may wish to offer a walk for a future Walks Programme, in which case just click here to access a form in PDF format for that purpose. Just print it off, fill it in and hand it to any walks organiser or committee member. Or go to the Walks Program > Walks Details Form menu at top of page.
