Walk Requests

Please remember, the walk posters are unpaid volunteers. They do their best to arrange with each other a wide mix of walks. Most of them like feedback, suggestions, and to be appreciated (= buy them a drink once in a while).

If you'd like a particular walk posted, you could reach out to you favourite walk poster, or ask for a "Blogger" invite so you can post it yourself (say, if you want to post a regular early-and-long or short-and-late walk).

Or, leave your request in a comment below.

Walk-posting requires a lot of effort on the part of our walk-posters for which we are all really grateful. However, Walker’s innovation of allowing us to choose our own walks on a first come basis seems to work well and be popular. Perhaps it should continue as a feature as many walkers feel that the Walk Requests are simply ignored. It would also avoid snidey comments in the walk reports when people have the audacity not to turn up on a posted walk.

Calling something a success after just one day, and a sunny day at it? Wow!
Long may it last, the enthusiasm of independent walk posters, the club needs them, including on rainy, foggy and windy days. Too soon to judge, I'd say...

And walk requests get ignored, do they? I'd absolutely love to see the spreadsheet analysis that lead to that broad brush statement. Just send it to the SWC email address (you've have to create a new anonymous email address for yourself first, of course). The only requests posted in this part of the forum that have a high chance of not getting acted on are the ones for walks that have just had an outing, or the unseasonal ones (ie very long ones in winter, very short ones in summer).

Other than that I can only repeat what I said a couple of evenings ago to the members of the WhatsApp Walking Club that are here on the Brecon trip: man up and talk to the people you have a problem with.

@anon- Sunday 19 July 12.54hr. I concur with you to permit other walkers to post a walk while some of the official posters are not posting ( because of new SWC/ Government guidance & personal reasons) at the moment.

Hi. Tisbury and Flitwick on August Saturdays, please. Thank you.

MoonBrain said...

May I suggest the Chelsea to Battersea Park walk one evening to coincide with the free music performances at the bandstand. Note that you need to book a free ticket to attend the performances.

Thomas G said...

As for the Tisbury request: as you can see this Saturday again, SWR is still running a Covid-schedule, meaning 20 mins extra wait in Salisbury and a two-hourly service on the return. As per their website, this is supposedly running to 4 Sep at least... [oh, and of course they are only updating the actual Saturday times to the Covid-schedule during the week itself, so train times shown for weeks ahead are unreliable]

If it's not too late can I request a Sussex coast walk for Sat 5th Sept please, such as:
129 Berwick to Birling Gap
181 Lewes to Seaford
316 Winchelsea to Hastings

Mike said...

Can I change my last request to Sat 24/Sun 25 and or Weds 28 Oct please?

Anonymous said...

Moreton in Marsh via Longborough one Saturday soon as the days are getting shorter. Many thanks.

Anonymous said...

Holmwood to Shamley Green please on a Saturday as we can’t get through the Barrier at Victoria early enough to do this walk during the week and the days are drawing in. Thanks

Debra said...

If a third walk has not yet been chosen for Saturday next (19th), please would one of the walk posters consider Yalding to Sutton Valence. If it's not feasible for this Saturday, perhaps soon?

MoonBrain said...

I would like to request some local walks for this weekend (26-27 Sep)

Anonymous said...

Hi. Request for a Saturday in October, please. Harrietsham to Yalding (reversing a favourite). Lateish lunch option at The Bull, Linton. Thank you.

GPS files- I am having trouble downloading walk options e.g on the Wendover Circular. They don't appear when I upload the route to Viewranger. I am using a MACBook and iPhone. Do I need to change a setting somewhere?javascript:void(0)

Brian said...

I know that Kent is leper territory at the moment (and probably will be for some time) but how about a walk in Sussex? Over the downs from Lewes, perhaps, to Saltdene or Rottingdean?

MoonBrain said...

Is it possible to have a walk that is only downhill? 😊
A friend was bemoaning having to climb hills on the walks and we mused if it was possible to write a walk which was only downhill.
Any of the walk-authors up to the challenge?

Mike P said...

If hopes of resuming walks by the end of March come to pass, can I ask for one or more South Downs walks on: Weds 14th/Sat 17th/Sun 18th April please? Cheers

Marc RICKETS said...

As the Walking Club Resumes. Why not plan Kelvedon, Hastings to Rye, Walton on Naze to ether Clacton-on-sea or Jaywick if Walking along. While taking the Bus to Clacton-on-sea on the way back, Sudbury, Canvey Island, Southend on Sea, Battle or Eastbourne to Seaford?

Brian said...

For God's sake, someone please post a walk and give us something to look forward to!

Marc Ricketts said...

What about a Coastal Walk around Southsea/Portsmouth way?

Anonymous said...

There are walks over the Easter Holidays (and midweek) on https://www.lwug.co.uk which some SWC folks have booked to go on should this be of interest.

Anonymous said...

Lidlington to Flitwick, please. Any Saturday in the next few months. Thank you.

Hello everyone!
It is 20 years since Nicholas Albery died in a car accident on 3 June 2001.
I am his widow and will go on the Wendover walk this Saturday. If you knew Nicholas, do join us. It would be a pleasure to meet up after many years.

Josefine said...

Just to say that I shall be going on the Milford to Haslemere walk on Sunday in memory of Nicholas Albery author of the TimeOut Book of Country Walks Book 1.

I was going to go on Saturday on the Wendover to Great Missenden walk, but changed to the Haslemere one. I have not been on any of these walks for ages, so it will be an adventure! I hope I am fit enough, or else I will have to take a shortcut...

If you are going, I will see you there!

Anonymous said...

It would be good to do a seaside walk on a weekday before the schools break up for the summer, when hopefully trains to the coast won't be too busy. Maybe there will even be some advance tickets available.

Anonymous said...

Lidlington to Flitwick on a July or August Saturday, please. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

Some South Downs walks on the next few Saturdays, please, to get the most out of the still longish days. Thank you.
