Conditions on a walk may vary dramatically, so always be prepared.
This checklist will help ensure you enjoy your day out:

  • Waterproofs (both coat and trousers)
  • Fleece (this can help keep you warm even when it’s wet)
  • Hat and gloves
  • Boots and walking socks (dry comfortable feet make all the difference)
  • Packed lunch (including extra food should you need a little extra energy boost)
  • Walking trousers (never wear denim jeans, once wet they’ll never dry out on a walk)
  • Water (staying hydrated is important)
  • Torch (particularly useful when the dark nights draw in)
