Good Walking Shoes are essential for the easy/moderate walks. Walking Boots are essential for the longer Advanced/Hill walks. Walking trousers or shorts suitable for the weather conditions. Waterproof trousers in wet weather, and are also a great barrier in cold windy weather. Waterproof/breathable jacket. Hat and gloves.
For long Advanced walks it is advisable to bring a change of clothes so that you can change out of wet and/or muddy clothes at the end of a walk.
While a First Aid kit will be available to the group, all walkers should try to have a small first aid kit with them. Water is essential on all walks. In summer, sun screen/insect repellent is necessary.
As the dark evenings start in, a torch/headtorch is essential. A light rucksack to carry it all!
