.EnBro Information for walkers

Walkers are individually responsible for their own safety during these walks and all walkers are to observe carefully all the relevant rules in both the Highway Code and the Country Code.

Young people under the age of 18 years are welcome to join any walk that is marked ‘YP’ provided that they are accompanied by an adult who remains responsible for their safety and care at all times
Dogs, well behaved and on a lead, are permitted on the walks unless otherwise indicated, but if a dog misbehaves, the walk leader will ask the owner and dog to leave.

Please keep mobile phones switched off during any EnBro walk.

Members are respectfully urged to ensure that they undertake walks within their capabilities so as not to over-stress themselves or hold up the group as a whole when walking, especially on longer walks; it may not be possible to shorten a walk. Members should alert the leader if they feel that a short stop would be appropriate.

All walks are circular unless stated otherwise, and an approx. distance is usually given. Leaders will normally explain the walk and forecast a completion time before they set off. There is a wide variety of walks from short gentle strolls to all day walks of up to 13 miles. Leaders aim to complete a 5 mile walk within about 2.5 hours and pro rata for the longer walks. Some brisk morning walks of 7.5 miles take about 3 hours. Walks are circular unless otherwise stated. Generally, the fewer the number of walkers the faster the pace because of shorter hold-ups at stiles.

Please check times of public transport when given in the walk’s description, especially at weekends when services may be cancelled due to engineering work. You should ensure that you have a valid ticket for the network you plan to use before travelling by train. If using a Freedom Pass you should also check the conditions of use and if applicable buy tickets to extend it from the zone boundary to cover additional travel.
Unless there are adverse weather conditions which make travelling hazardous, the leader will always endeavour to be at the start of the walk. It is for the leader to decide whether the walk should be cancelled because of the bad conditions.

What to bring
Always wear suitable footwear as footpaths may well be muddy or rough, and take windproof clothing on coastal/exposed walks. It is sensible to bring a cold drink of water, etc for a brief stop, even on the shorter walks. Urban walkers will find a front pocket (best with a zip) or bag carried at the front safer than a backpa

Toilet facilities

Citymapper also shows travel directions. shows facilities at all stations in Greater London. Council websites list public and community toilets.

Travel planning
Why not talk to fellow walkers when you are out or ask on facebook to see if you could share car use? Remember to lock your car and remove all possessions from sight.
