2017 Summer Walks Programme

Walks on the existing Winter walks programme (upto 30th April) are shown in the list below.

Walk start points are given as six figure OS grid references (accurate to 100m).  Post codes are also included for SatNavs but please be aware these can cover large areas in rural regions, so are best used with caution.

A link to a map showing the start point each walk is provided in the pdf programme and in the list below.  Alternatively, you can copy the reference number (e.g SK233622) and paste in the box on www.streetmap.co.uk. A guide for converting the grid reference to the nearest postcode for use with a SatNav can be viewed here.

Please consider sharing lifts and use the Nottingham meet point where possible.
