Finding the start of your walk
Start and meeting points include nearest postcode and an Ordnance Survey grid reference accurate to 100m. Use postcodes with care: in rural areas the nearest postcode may be some distance from the actual start point. See OS maps for an explanation of how to use grid references.
Walk grading is provided as a general guide only. If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact the organiser or leader in advance.
Bear in mind the distance of the walk, regional differences in terrain and the possibility of bad weather, which can make a walk more difficult than planned.
If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first - it's much better to find a walk a little too slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
Leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit.
Local grading. The standard Ramblers grading system means that almost all of our walks fall in to the moderate category, by default. The local grading is intended to give a more informative grading but, as always, the walk leader will be happy to advise on suitability.
