Walking – Long Walks (Striders)

Group Leader: Nick Hood

The group meets on the first and third Mondays each month. There is a group meeting point in the village and another at the start of the walk route for those wishing to go direct.

About our Group


Fresh air, exercise, good company and a nice pub lunch.

Areas walked

We cover the whole of the Chilterns, with occasional jaunts into Hertfordshire.

How the meetings are organised

Each walk is led by a member of the group. Members are expected to take their turn in leading walks, but it is not obligatory. The walk leader is responsible for choosing the route and for all arrangements with the pub for lunch.

Details of the walk are sent out by the Group Leader about two weeks in advance of the walk date, asking members to book in and provide the following information: where they will join the group for the walk, their choice of food for the pub lunch stop and their current mobile phone number (for communications on the day).

Meeting point

There are two meeting points for each walk: at Grove Way in Chorleywood, from where members can car share to the start point, or the start point for the walk for those who wish to go direct for any reason.

How long are the walks?

The start time varies according to the length of the walk and how far from Chorleywood the start point is, but is usually at about 09.30. We aim to get people back to Chorleywood by 15.30, especially in the winter with the early nights. The finish time can be a little later in the summer.

There are two different types of walk. On the first Monday each month we aim to cover up to 12 miles in reasonably strenuous terrain. On the third Monday, the route will be shorter (up to 9 miles) and the going will be easier.

The cost

The only cost is for lunch, which is at members’ discretion.

This group has vacancies.  Please contact the group leader for more information.
