Caradon Monthly Walking Group
Our walks take place on the first
Wednesday of every month usually somewhere in East Cornwall and can have between 30 and,
on one occasion, nearly 80 walkers.
Each month we choose a
different location, researched and risk assessed by our volunteer walk leaders who plot the route and identify any
difficult stiles, slippery paths or grazing livestock that could cause problems for any of us. They usually manage
to organise somewhere for lunch for those who haven't planned to bring their own.
We meet at around
10.00 for a start at 10.30 and finish at 15.00 or 15.30. As they can be between 4 and 6 miles our trips can be more
strenuous than some of the less rural routes and so may be better suited to people who want to preserve their
health and fitness rather than those new to walking or returning to walking, post-surgery, for example. Walk
details are circulated in advance and posted on this website, Facebook and Twitter so you can check the walk
description and make sure it meets your ability.
It doesn't matter to us why you are
walking - we'd just be delighted to see you. We are really just a group of friendly people who all enjoy going for
a stroll once a month and who welcome others to join us, whether just for one walk or as regular
No need to tell us you are coming. If any of the walks on these pages appeal
to you, just turn up and say hello. Other than any car parking charges that may apply and the cost
of any refreshments you buy, all our walks are entirely free of charge.
Please Note: Caradon Monthly Walking Group is a walking group led by
volunteer walk leaders. Walks are risk assessed and the main concerns are detailed in the walk description and
pre-walk briefing but by participating in a walk all walkers accept they take part in walks entirely at their
own risk. The walk leaders personally and/or Caradon Monthly Walking Group shall not be held liable for, nor
accept any liability for, any accident, injury, loss or damage sustained as a consequence of participation in a
walk. Participants are advised to read the walk description in advance and make sure that the walk is suitable
for their level of fitness and health. Any participant who has any doubts about their fitness or their ability
to take part in the walk should consult their GP or a suitably qualified health professional before
participating. Participants should notify the walk leaders of any relevant medical conditions. Walkers should
wear clothing and footwear suitable for an off-road walk and be prepared for all weather conditions.
Participants are advised to carry water, a small first aid kit and any medication that may
be required, for example asthma inhalers. Participants are required to
register before beginning the walk and to tell the walk leaders if they leave the walk early. Not all walks will
be suitable for dogs. If a walk is publicised as
being suitable for dogs and a walker chooses to bring a dog with them on that walk, the dog must be kept under
control at all times and will remain the sole responsibility of that individual walker throughout the
