  • We are a diverse* group of personable pedestrians who explore the splendid countryside of our region, usually on alternate Sundays. You do not need to be an experienced walker or super-fit to join in; you'll just need some stout shoes or boots, warm and waterproof clothing when appropriate, a packed lunch and a sense of humour. You don't need a car either because we meet on campus to arrange lifts.
  • The walks average about 8 miles (13 km) in length and usually start within an hour's drive of the campus, although sometimes in summer we go further afield.
  • We're called Warwick Staff Walkers, but anyone associated with Warwick and neighbouring institutions, plus friends and family, are welcome to join any walk; younger members of your family can come along at your discretion, but walks are probably not suited to very young children (even though they might well be the most sensible members of the group).
Take the first step towards transforming your Sundays by contacting Martin Sanders to be put on our mailing list.

Just another 164 United Nations member states to go.
