While this listing of walks is up-to-date at time of publishing, it is sometimes necessary to cancel or change a planned walk for reasons such as leader unavailability, closed roads or poor weather. It is also Boots N’ All policy that a minimum of 2 persons of the same gender (this can include the leader) will need to register before the walk can go ahead.
