Tired of the hustle and bustle of the city? Want to escape for a day or two and go walking in the hills? Then this is the club for you.
We regularly take day trips to local areas such as the Peak District, the countryside of Leicestershire and the welsh borders and weekend trips to the spectacular mountain ranges of the lake district and Wales and the moors of the south west, spending an exhilarating day walking in the hills and mountains, perhaps followed by a rewarding drink in a local pub.
Climbing some of Britain's highest and most picteresque peaks gives members a real sense of achievement (and something to impress friends with in Monday morning lectures!).
One of the best things about the society, aside from the friendly atmosphere and fantastic walks, is that it fits around you. There is no obligation to join every trip – you can choose the ones you have time for, that you may have an interest in, and that suit your abilities.
