We are part of the U3A organisation (which is aimed at people who are fully or partially retired) but this Hill Walking Group is quite small and we only occasionally have double figure numbers on our walks. The walks can be reasonably strenuous at times but we are not competitive, we only go as fast as the slowest walker.
Our walks and other activities
Walks are monthly on Tuesdays and are usually within 1.5 hours drive from Wigan so we take in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and North Wales.
We offer walks in many boroughs as there are U3A groups all over the country.
Our walks are suitable for fairly strong and fit walkers and range from 6 to 10 miles with a height gain of up to 2000ft.
