Group was one of the first Interest Groups when BFU3A started in 2001.
Ever since then, the Group has been well supported and continues to
attract new members.
If walking interests you, then you will be most
welcome to join us.
We normally have two walks a month - on the first Tuesday and the third
The 'short' walks are of about four to five miles and the longer ones
of usually seven to eight miles - though it has been known for my
distances to be questioned! During the winter all walks are short and
fairly local, but when the days are longer there is one short and one
long each month.
Our walks are not a race - speed and distances are not our priority -
we walk to enjoy the countryside and everything around us.
Some of our walks have been in towns, and for others we have visited
places of interest. We enjoy the company of each other and exchanging
views and ideas on a wide range of topics!!

In April 2019
we had our first long walk of the summer season when we visited the
site where the Martians landed on Horsell Common in H. G. Wells’ story
of ‘The War of the Worlds’. On this occasion we met HG himself (a
statue really) and saw a Martian tripod fighting machine. We also
visited a war memorial dedicated to Muslim soldiers who died during the
first and second world wars and walked along a peaceful stretch of the
Basingstoke canal near Woking.
