What are Open Group Walks?
Anyone can join one of my Open Group Walks. They are fully guided small-group walks and are ideal for solo walkers, couples and small groups that may be visiting the area and want the hassle taken out of route planning and navigation.
The walks usually have a seasonal theme, showcasing the very best of what the Peak District has to offer at different times of the year. They’re a great way to meet like-minded people whilst being led over the hill and moors, forests and farmland.
Check out the walking events page for upcoming walks, dates and prices.
