For all walks you must wear sturdy footwear and clothing appropriate to the time of year, weather and the type of ground to be covered. Strong, comfortable walking boots are ideal.
Wear layers of clothing which you can add to in the cold or take off in the heat and begin with a ‘base layer’ which is not of cotton; and bring a spare fleece or jumper. Bring waterproof clothing, gloves and something to cover the head. Don’t wear jeans as they are uncomfortable and cold when wet.
Bring some water (or a hot drink in a flask) and food and snacks to eat according to the length of your walk. Walking poles can help on some types of ground.
If you have any medical conditions: please check with your doctor before taking exercise. If you have medication which you might need to take (e.g. for asthma), please bring it; and advise the walk leader of any ailments which it would helpful for them to know.
