Walking Club

Hatfield SCR Walking Club meets monthly on a Saturday or Sunday throughout the year. We usually walk approximately 6 miles in a day, choosing a different location each time. In the recent past we've explored areas such as Auckland Park and Beamish and also ventured a little further afield to Shap in Cumbria.

We have a core membership of weather-proof people who participate regardless of the conditions, so events are rarely cancelled. We walk at a pace suitable for all and consider the social side of the walks just as important as the exercise! We also consider eating and drinking important and usually stop for a pub lunch either during or after our exertions.

Any member of the SCR is very welcome to attend any walk at any time. Photographs from some of our past walks can be viewed in the Image Gallery.

We're always very pleased to hear from members willing to lead a walk - please email if you'd like to do so.

Sunday Strolls

For Hatfield College members who would like to get out for some exercise and company, but who may not have transport or a full day available, we have Sunday Strolls, based in and around Durham on Sunday afternoons. All members, and guests are very welcome. Details are listed on the SCR's Calendar of Events.
